Punkwest I was at afton alps twice this year. I thought it was quite fun minus the short runs. They had lots of neat park features and I loved the one terrain park where they had like 50 different rails in that small area. I will for sure visit it again next season. If ya got a weekend to kill Lutsen is pretty awesome for the midwest! I have my season pass at giants ridge and it's a pretty alright place also. I try to hit a few different Midwest hills every year. This year it was afton and Mt. Bohemia. I always go to spirit mountain and lutsen every year both very enjoyable Midwest resorts.

Thanks. Wow, we got lucky last weekend. Conditions were awesome and there were few people. Sounds like you had a fun time anyway.

Board Gadget I am at a home school conference in Rochester. To cool for school

Bluebird powder day at Trollhaugen today. Let me know how it goes. Tomorrow is my B-Day. I was hoping they would open. It would be a blast to snowboard on my B-Day.

Deacon Well we only got a couple inches, but Troll said they got 8, and they opened up another lift, 15 runs open, same price. If I don't have to work, i'll be there all day. If you go, look for the guy in the grey Cottage View Drive-In hood. It'll probably be me. Say hey.
