Anyone going to Alpine Valley tonight? I'll get there between 5:30 and 6:00. Blue/gray jacket, black helmet, Head Supershape skis, short, quick turns. Say Hi.

MW hope you find a bear to ski with.


On a note about our home slopes.
Here is the current pic at Crystal Mountain, taken 15 seconds ago.

They had their one main hill open (Lodge Express) and a couple of blues. Snow coverage was good. Both quads running.

I would guess by this weekend they will have the terrain park hills open - the runs to the east - they were blowing a lot of snow there.

Looks like I jumped the gun a bit with my last post- Ripley will be open Dec 7, not Dec 1. The good news is that the snow up here has continued at a sicktarded pace, with the more reliable forecasts (johndee.com is the best UP forecast, bar none) showing possible feet over the next week. Word.

Report for Central and Upper WI, including parts of the Upper Peninsula of MI are for a possible foot of snow by Sunday noon; and another 5 inches or more next week Tuesday.

As of this morning it is almost a white out snow fall here in Wausau WI. Looking good.

PSIA event lots of fun.

Boyne has changed its mind and is remaining open the remainder of this week. Originally the plan was to close this evening and reopen Friday, 12/07/07. This is the Mountain only. Highlands closed this evening and will reopen Friday except traditionally they run a lift for the examiners on Thursday. A group of them were at the Mountain today.

Anyway, it looks like Boyne Mtn. will be the only Northern Lower Peninsula area open Monday through Thursday.

Pierre,
what group are you in ? I'm doing mini-academy. It would be nice to meet some people from here. We should get together and drink, I mean meet.

Anyone know if there's going to be a mid December demo day at AV?

Only demo I've seen stuff for around here is Head on the 16th and Rossi on the 27th at Cascade.

No. I spoke with the Head rep on Saturday. There will not be a demo day at AV nor at Indianhead this December.

Chestnut Mtn. in Galena, IL is having a demo day. December 15th, Salomon and Elan will be there.
post #77 of 80
December 28 at Highlands and 29 at Boyne Mtn. are public demo days. Demo vans from half a dozen manufacturers usually show up for these events.
