Down by a touchdown is getting rocked?

Now I normally wouldn't root for either team, but we NEED Michigan to beat Ohio State so when MSU pounds Penn State we'll go to the Rose Bowl.

Edit: Okay, now they're getting rocked.

That's the first thing that crossed my mind too and considering we didn't get any snow today (most of what we had around me melted) I was a little confused.

My personal nearby favorite is Mt. Holly which is about an hour to the east. Anytime I don't feel like driving, I go to Holly. It's a pretty friendly place that's got something for everyone. Couple rails and boxes and a they even had a few tabletops last year (which is becoming a rarity in Michigan).

About 45 minutes southeast is "Mt." Brighton, which is basically just a terrain park built on a dump. I haven't been there, but I've heard its okay, nothing spectacular.

There's another resort called Bittersweet that's about an hour and 45 minutes to the southwest that's supposed to be just as good as Mt. Holly, if not better. I plan on hitting 'em up in the next few weeks so I'll let you know how it is.

Now if you're up for some driving there's some GREAT resorts up north.

Nub's Nob is FANTASTIC and probably the best place I've ever been. On the downside, it is a 3 1/2 hour drive. They've got some pretty long runs and a ton of rails/boxes. They've got some step downs, a spine, and a superpipe, but no tabletops anymore.

I actually made a video there on closing day last year if you're interested: http://www.youtube.com/v/cpuIPJUqDAg

Yeah my cousin's husband is pretty big on skiing so I'm looking forward to riding some slopes with him.

Last time I went to Nubs with my roommate and a busload of high schoolers for $20...we only stayed for the day (since it was closing day) but I'm hoping to do a lot more trips like that this year, maybe to Caberfae or one of the Boynes.
