perhaps i misunderstood. i thought i read that the toll would be at the tunnel, and that the lane widening proposed would go from floyd hill to us 40.

It was an average of 15 degrees, and average wind gust of 30mph, and up to 55mph. this was pretty harsh for east coast ridding, especially this late into the season, but it was awesome. for twilight on a saturday, i maybe saw an average of 8 to 10 people on the slope. I think it was a great way to end my season.

this will be my first summer inbetween seasons, and its gonna suck, because I already can't wait for opening day at the slopes. lol, I plan on skating a lot but that won't make me forget about next season at all. I plan on getting a season pass somewhere but its hard to decide. I want to really get into freestyle so app would be the best place for that, but they have like 4 or 5 slopes. On the other hand, sugar has tons of slopes, but a pretty crappy park, and they blow a lot, and when they blow, its not up 20 feet above you, but a hose set up to shoot ice right at your face while you pass by it, not only getting you an extra chill, but caking ice on your goggles, which takes more than a whip to get off.

And the suckiest thing is, is that they know they can overcharge here like hell. I know up at snowshoe, wv, probably the best slope I have been to, and supposedly the closest I can get to out west boarding, they charge $299 for a student season pass. Well, I live 4 and a half hours away from that (thats from my home town, and from my school in charlotte, its like 6 hours away, which is where I would be coming from since I will be in school theN).

My local slopes are around 2 hours away (from school and home town about), and there season passes are so overpriced. like i said, app has maybe 5 slopes with two awesome parks, and there student season pass is $390, and at sugar, not sure of student rates, but there regular is about $700. Wish I lived closer to snowshoe, because that is a lot more bang for your buck considering they have 60 trails, seperate night trails, and 3 or 4 terrain park runs.

lol, I was planning on getting a new setup over the summer too (board and bindings). Well, guess I know where all my summer job money is going.

So, is it bad that this is the first summer that I am actually wishing away for the 09 winter season?
Is that the price right now? I got a season pass for next year and since I bought it so early I got it for $229. In November it'll be $390 or more.

That sucks for you... lol. On the other hand it's good exercise. I can always send you a truckload of sand from here, of course that will only get you in more trouble. lol
