Yeah I was at Summit on Friday with fondles & it was pretty slushy all day, but I'll take slush over nothing after this shitty winter & the very few days I've gotten to ride so far this season

Damn, I want one more session to work on butters/ground tricks.

Weather doesn't look good for Summit/Bear. Looks like they'll close on the 15th so far. I'd be happy with a low to mid-40's day so it does't get too slushy.

I'd love to if I can save up some $. Going to Paris in a few weeks with family, so I'm trying to make sure I have all my bills, etc covered before then since I don't have a full month to take care of things. When are you thinking of going?

Im flexible on dates. My current employment is running out rapidly. Right now I have zero work for May OR June.

I'd like to go up the beginning of May if no future work comes in. I could be talked into a second trip in June as well. There's a small chance that I will end up working in May but it's doubtful. June-August I'll be full time unemployed.

Cool. Yeah, I'm currently unemployed & hating it. May might be tough, as I get back from Paris in early May & I'll be in the same situation as I am for April of not having a full month to make ends meet. June holds a little more promise assuming I can find some work or get some serious $ coming in from 1 of several projects I'm working on. We'll keep in touch about it for sure, but at this point, don't wait for me if you're looking to go in May

Its official its a bust. Bear took down most of the park to set up something for Redbull and Snowboarder Magazine. They pushed A LOT of snow down where the 100 footer was and you can tell the rest of the runs are suffering. Its a cool setup but you have to be part of the comp. or whatever to get in. Anyways Ill still give you a report.

Showed up at 9:00. Lifts were not open until 9:20. It was really icy and hardpack for the first 30-45 minutes which is good because it was fast but after about 45 minutes it just went to crap. Cruised around for a while just taking it easy because of the conditions. After about two hours there was absolute NO speed what so ever. The park was ok. Still the same setup up top except where the up/down box (next to the kink rail) there is now a flat bar rail. Farther down its still the analog box with a normal box on the right. Rainbow rail is still there. Redbull plaza was fucking HORRID.. I kept skipping it for the hips. Water tank is still down by the hips. They took out the big pyramid and the jump in the middle now is a HUGE 150 footer that I just laughed at. The lower park was exactly the same.

Wrap up. Save your money.

handscreate: what do you do if you don't mind me asking? I do post production sound...TV mostly so season is ending. I'm really busy at the end of April with Pilots. So Im thinking I'll just leave town as soon as I wrap them up.


ttam:thanks for report. Sad sad sad
