Cool we should meet up so only one of us has to drive all the way up.

Where abouts are you located?

I'm in Maple Ridge, chances are, you're somewhere one my route?

Fuck, I got one of those little pinner spare tires on right now, I'm gonna have to see about fixin' that tonight.

I think they got surprised, & I don't think they want to surprise everyone but it's starting to look like they have no choice.

There is too much money being lost every single day that they aren't open, & believe me, they know it!!

If they have to surprise people, they will.

It really looks like it's going to be a great season this year - if we ever get some that that, you know, the white stuff we slide on? Been so long since I've seen any...
The downfall of last years line was there was only enough room for 3 features because the zone is quite narrow ( ride on flat box, side hit Etnies box thing & flat down box. Later changed in March for Greenhorn games to a ride on box, your choice of ride on flat down or side on down rail and a S jump that you would have to b line from the top box and miss the other features to get a enough speed to clear the knuckle. The old zone was large enough that there would be 6 features. It says they are going to link up both zones this year so like we will get the best of both worlds.

Hellz yeah! Agree with you about the limitations of last year's line, and I hit that knuckle more than a few; but I was just jazzed that they even HAD a 10-foot jump (for more than a week anyway). And the year before last, Mushroom had only street-style rails and boxen, at least for the part of the year that I was paying attention. I wasn't there yet. Will be this year.

I'm also very interested to see what they end up with as a line down from Mystery through Nut House. They've done something with that line for the last 2 seasons, but I think this time around they're going to be trying for a total integrated continuous line.

Again, though, this is dependant on them getting enough snow. Still looking pretty sketchy.

I went hiking up Seymour today. there's about 8" of snow at parking lot level -- although it was drizzling so the stuff was spongecake. You could hike it and get some runs in. There were actually some boarders and skiers doing just that. Just have to go uphill from the parking lot.
