How have they taken the warm ups? Anything left? The fb pages are very quiet on the hill.

That's pin it or die type stuff there.. Nothing worse than coming around a corner and seeing a freekin pond that's the entire way across the trail and 50 yards long. Oh and of course the lip at the exit point on the pond is about a foot high straight up and your wife is right behind you on her sled and you say "PIN IT and KEEP IT PINNED!"... and she says "what?".

Tic knows how to pin it!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Barnes Corners groomer was headed out when I came through tonight.

If I got home earlier I'd be riding now...but I didn't, so I'm not. :(

The XP was the most fun sled ever made - but I liked my XR more. The 850 takes it to a whole different level. But darn, the 900T is Bad to The Bone!

Im suppose to be there the 9th-18th. Getting nervous. It's only a 3 1/2hr drive. But I only get a week vacation at work. And I don't wanna burn it for no reason

I've been there enough to know that even in good conditions, that getting out of their parking lot and up the hill and towards the groomer barn is sketchy enough with snow cover

Z man and pics are like Bark and pics lol.

Taking pictures would require stopping, and I don't ever stop. Well, at my advanced age I do have to stop and pee normally once a ride, but the helmet still doesn't come off. :lol:


I'll see what I can do. If I don't get pictures I'll at least see if I can give a review.

At this point I'd say you'll be OK, just can't ride in a huge area.

I'd love to make the 4 plus hour drive up but with the southern area all the way to Rome being so bad it doesn't pay. I guess it's what I get for living in the southern tier lol

Heck even when the snow was good I wouldn't be out on a Saturday afternoon. I get up early, ride a bunch, then head home. I'm normally home with 150-200 miles on before a lot of people are out of bed.  :laugh_old:
