Rain all morning then looked out this afternoon to see it snowing sideways. The lawn was green this morning and now it's white. Crossing fingers for Thanksgiving weekend opening up north.

Snowing to beat the band in SE. MI. too, although it's not supposed to stick. :(

Cab' would be cool and do-able if it opens! Here's hoping!

I'll be at Crystal for sure if it's open, we'll be up in Manistee that weekend anyways. That Friday is my birthday, that sure would be a good present.

Cab', Crystal, either would b possible for a quick weekender. If either is open? I intend to be there. Boyne is just a liiiiittle too far for an old fart like me driving solo after a day of solid riding. Even with a jumbo thermos of Starbucks best.

Oh, and as for the OP's question in the intro thread as to "How I manage to get in 48 days while working?" (...didn't answer in that thread so as not to highjack it with OT replies!)

Aside from the obvious answer that suggests I am more than a triffle irresponsible, and ride more than I can really afford to. ;). (...My credit report can testify to that!) lol! If you saw Deac's pic post of his first runs in the CO. thread? I would,.. Will,.. Have, willingly traveled to ride crappy opening day snow like that! I'll also readily head up north and spend $3-$400 dollars I cant afford to ride those last few slushy, dirty snow days in late April, early Mar. Our season's too short for me to be a "snow snob!" (....And I do NOT use that term in a derisive fashion!). Not enough days or snow close enough for me to be too picky. I wanna ride! So I go.

During the season, I also get enough vacation time, sick days, personal days etc. and with no wife or kids, I take them off mostely in the winter to ride. This will be the first year I have bought passes to my regular hills, I have a new veh. that gets WAY better milage than my old 4x4 truck. So now that I've earned an extra weeks vacation at work, (...up from 3 to 4 weeks and can split that last one to use for several more 3 & 4 day weekends?)

....If weather co-operates, I'm hoping to blast past my stated goal of 50+, and maybe, just maybe crack the 60 day mark this season!!! :yahoo:

(...that's assuming I don't break my fat old ass in two on that new longboard I just got!) lol!

that explains a lot.....but wow....that's still quite a few days to pack in!
I need to get a season pass for sure this season.....maybe i'll give you a run for your $$....
oh and I plan to get a longboard next season too!...I quad skate, but doin' some turns on a longboard just looks like a blast!......and bust my ass?.....meh, it's already gotta crack in it, so......pffft.....heheh

I hope you guys get to go shred this weekend!.....i'm shootin' to go mehself if it all pans oot......:)

I know a few places in WI are going to try and open this weekend, but temps look rather warm for the remainder of the week.

Granite Peak has been making snow when they can and might open on this Saturday. Won't know for sure until later in the week.

One word,... Mammoth!
Trust me, I'm waiting. Already have a lift ticket. But if I'm driving 6 hours I need the whole mountain open, not one or two runs

Oh and I haven't chosen my all-mtn board for the year yet (first Proto, then almost pulled the trigger on a Happy Hour, now a Salomon Time Machine). So I need a few weeks. :laugh:
