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.

It was really fun, but a complete zoo. The parking lot was packed, and they had two lifts open, so the lines were ridic. The snow was fun, but by 3 I was starting to see ground peaking through in some spots. it was only 40, but the sun is really, really warm. I couldn't even wear my helmet, had to lose my base layer and goggles. I spoke to an instructor, and he said they're thinking about opening tomorrow. Really just depends on the weather. Rain= closed, but if it snows again, and he said it's supposed to, they'll open. Here's hoping! Happy birthday!

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

Tow rope only, but still open 10-5 this saturday... My little ones have first communion, but I'm still going to try to find time for a few turns. I can't stop, i think I might have a problem.

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.
