BRING ON THE PAIN! What happened to the early season snow falls you said we’d have Mr. Weatherman? You kind of fibbed on that one didn’t you! Well this weekend (12/10) most everyone opens up for the long awaited snowboard season. We’ll have the parking lot set , AKA The Parking Lot Lab, up firing as soon as we can. Until then go hit some of our fine local day areas like Mad River & Mt. Brighton, give them a little love because the both work the local scene pretty hard & don’t have that big corpo mentality like some (that we won’t mention). Remember always to point it once in a while, don’t talk crazy sh!t, don’t hate, jump higher & support your local snowboard shop. Get it while you can!

Found a truck, got real desperate and am going to rob a pile of snow from homedepot parking lot, plan to get the redsky parking lot rail set up around 1 130
that plan went all to hell!

I rode Mt. Brighton yesterday for 1st time in a long time yesterday, yep, I did…….
Talked to frenchy and aaron around 10:30 this morning. they went to Mt Holly, but holly didnt open till 3. someone there told them to drive 10 more minutes to a indoor park and gave them the tele number. I guess they called and the owner told them is was closed because they were currently building a foam pit. They complained about drving up from toledo and everything being closed, so owner told them to come over and gave them free acess.
they texted me some pics its a indoor carpet park. The pics i got show you can drop into your choice of boxes, or down flat rail then ride off to a 4or5ft quater pipe. Another was the drop in to kicker into the foam pit they were building.
They said it was pretty legit and we are gonna plan something to go back when the snow is gone.
Its called Misfit labs in Fenton Mi. off of 23
helmets required fyi
John is trying to bring the Parking Lot Lab back to life……we’ll see what gets done.

Might be everyones last chance for parking lot snow for a while. I’m working here at the shop all day so come out and set something up.
the parking lot lab is kaput!
Parking Lot is alive, for the time being. If we avoid the rain on monday we should carry snow for a while. Stop out and get some drops, then head out to the streets!
Is there enough of the rare white stuff in the pll to make something happen? Im thinking to bring my shovel up friday after 5pm
there is only about a half inch right now. hopefully we get the big dump tomorrow nite like they’re saying we’ll get.
any time now………
I’ll be at the shop all day tomorrow, definitely riding in the parking lot, most likely riding street afterwards
The varsity team is at Snowtrails today, try & catch them & say “hi”!
snowtrails was actually pretty sick! there big boy park got a facelift this year and is pretty solid. worth the extra 10 minute drive.
I just got back from Mad River, pretty sketchy after 2 days of warm & rainy conditions. They should be solid once the cold & snow move in tonite! Shaping up for a good weekend.
man did this “big” snow storm suck!
Looks like Logan and I are checking out snow trails on Saturday. If anyone wants to tag along let me know.
Heading to madriver right now
Damn we were there, I didn’t see you. We’re heading back down Sunday morning. We’ll be there around 11am
heading up North for a 3 day ride a thon, Caberfae tonite, Boyne Saturday & Crystal on Sunday, should be good & hopefully no crowds, Mad River should be good for all the rest of you this Sunday.
Heading back down to mad river on Sunday, looks like it’ll be 35 and sunny. Yesterday the place looked great. Leaving from red sky at 9:39am. Red sky should still have discounted lift tickets if you need them. They are $33 and they’re $45 at mad river.
I will be heading down on sunday also, i will stop in the shop for some more lift tickets.
Hell yeah man, We’re going early, what time are you heading out?
rumor is a raiding party might be heading down to Mad River tomorrow….
I’m meeting up at the shop tomorrow morning at 9:30 and I’ll be on the road no later than 9:45. I still have plenty of room in my van so if anyone wants to come along just be at the shop tomorrow morning.
I’ll be at mr all day. If anyone is down there come say what’s up and get in some park laps with me.
Setting up the parking lot Saturday morning, all are welcome. Come wreck yourself!
I’m heading down to mad river on Friday, and I have room for 5 people, let me know if anyone wants to tag along…
Just got back from MR, not a lot but its still better than nothing, watch out for the law down there, I’m $105 lighter……
Damn……this is starting to suck…..
A couple more days of sketchy weather then we should be off & rolling! Mt. Holly, Brighton & AV have been open since last Friday. Mad River & Snowtrails are MAYBE looking at this Saturday- a BIG maybe that is! Crystal, Cab, The Boynes & Nubs all look pretty good right now. The PLL is down until further notice!
