Friday @ Nubs Nob - foggy up high, groomed ice, on and off light rain. Pretty shitty conditions. Some random old dude on skis lost an edge and crashed into a lift pole, broke his leg. My son and I started at 10:00am, we were #11 and #12 to be on the slopes. Stayed for about 4 hours and then the rain picked up intensity so we bailed. Ended up raining pretty hard for the next 3 or 4 hours. We left Nubs at 2:00 and checked in at Boyne Highlands. Dinner at Duffy's Garage (used to be PapaLou's) in Petoskey.
Saturday@ B-Highlands - crusty groomed ice. Took some warm-up runs down Heather and Macgulley to Heather. Crossed over to the Challenger lift for a few runs on North and South Challenger, both were iced corduroy. Took the Interconnect to North Face, rode Floradora, Buckey's, Andrew's Alley. Crusty. Took the ever-slow Lois Lane back to Amy's Chair, did Amy's Run a few times, things were starting to soften up. Form there were hopped around Funland (jumps were sketchy), hit K-2 and Olympic a few times. The snow was sugary at that time. And then my son wanted to ride the Wonder Carpet for old time's sake... all in all it was a pretty good day considering the conditions were less than optimal.
Boyne Highlands closes tomorrow (3/26). Caberfae is closed. Boyne Mountain is trying to stay open until 4/16 (my birthday, don't forget to buy me something nice).

|ctoma||^ All I got from your last post is you are going to take a day or 2 BM. That's a long BM, your legs will probably fall asleep from sitting on the throne that long.|

…that said? If BM is easier and/or what everyone else agrees upon?? It's no biggie for me! I'll do a day or two @ BM!

|sabatoa||I don't mind Nubs but I think @bksdds is looking at Boyne Mountain because they have daycare for his little one, I don't want to make it harder for him.|

|offthewallds||Never been to Nubs, so I'm game for checking it out!|

So,... you guys just figure out if it's Nubs or BM where you want to meet up on the 1st. and I'll be there.
(...I've a preference for Nubs over BM myself, but will go wherever the group decides.)
