Cool Dad with two boys and new toys. Anxious is an "Under Statement "

This will be my second season first with all our own equipment; My youngest (9) on a new 2011 125 lib tec skate banana, Union "mini flights" bindings and 32 stw boa, My (12) year old on an 2012 Arbor mini Element RX 140 with K2 cinch cts and DC park boa boots. I will be on the 2012 Arbor formula158, K2 cinch cts and 32 stw boa boots. To say were anxious is an understatement and this warm east coast Nov. Weather is starting to make me mad. Regardless were ready when it gets here.

Nice great to see another newer/beginner dad riding with his kids. This is start of our 3rd season. I can so relate to the weather issues as well. Here in the Midwest, it's been crap. Closest good snow is 3 hour trip and that resort is not fully open yet. Next option is the UP that is 5+ hours and this time of year I just can't swing that.

Have a blast with your kids, it's great bonding/memories

I got an email from Granite Peak yesterday or so. They're opening up this weekend, I think. That shouldn't too bad of a drive from Milwaukee.

Haha, it looks like your 9-year olds board is wider than him! I remember being so difficult with my dad when he was trying to buy me gear with growing room... There were plenty of years that I would outgrow a pair of boots from one season to the next... His usual response "It'd be cheaper to cut your damn toes off."

Granite Peak has 7 out of 75 runs open and some features and 1 jump. They have a great park, and just got 4" last night. Just not enough snow to get the operations totally up. This will be another day trip for us when they are 100% as there park is a blast !!!!
It is a 3 hour drive each way and this early in the season and it needing to be a day trip. I just can't justify it yet.
Tyrol Basin has been doing everything possible to make and keep snow for us and it's 1.5 hour trip. So we have been going there whenever possible. But since I don't have a season pass for any of us at their resort, one day can run me $150 and I just can't keep doing that every weekend.

With the projected temps dropping our local hill will turn on the guns. They did but temps kicked up and what little they could make is gone. They can almost cover all 15 runs in 3 days so pray for cold.
Then we can use our season passes and get some slope time in.
