weather sucks here in Michigan...

i hope it's better wherever you are. we've had warm temps (>32) and rain nearly everyday for over a week. I really wanted to get some time in at the local hills this year to finally get on-top of this snow boarding, but weather is keeping me home. So, far I've only been out 2x this year (trip to northern lower mich). I really don't want to invest a lot of money for a western trip till i'm a bit better (want to get my money's worth), but I may have to as conditions in all of mich. suck right now.

Temps are a droppin and snows on the way!

Yes the weather has sucked.
But ya need to quit with the excuses and just get out more. Just cause there's no snow in yer yard don't mean the hills are bare. Went to Holly last Sun. 100% open no bare spots and deep soft granular spring like conditions. Get your practice in at the small local hills then enjoy the bigger up north or western resorts. Need some advice or lessons let me know. I jump around all over the place from hill to hill. Will trade lessons for beer.

Thanks,

Pick a time & place. Brightons pretty easy to get to from Plymouth.

Speaking of bad weather. I ran into that freezing rain ice storm Saturday morning heading up to Caberfae. What a mess. From Aubrun Hills to Flint 75 was littered with cars in the ditches. Got better as I went up, rain turned to snow north of Bay City.
