    Yea, I read that too... must be someone hallucinating in the IT department, we all know it doesn't snow at Snowbasin.

    A crappy day. Too many people, to few lifts open. Just a cluster. 7 buses of snowboarders from CA. Avoid the place.
    I want a 6" travel 20lb MTB. I found the 20lb MTB, but only good for riders under 87 pounds.

    unfortunately 18 inches is enough to be hero snow, but also just enough to hide tree stumps. Ouch. High speed tree stump collisions suck. Bone in ankle, hopefully not out too long. Close to 50" predicted between now and Friday. Arggggggggg!!!!!!

    I can sympathize, although I don't think mine was as bad as yours sounds. Sucks man.

    It's that time of year again... I wish we could somehow redirect the buses of California kids to Alta or Park City or something. They'd probably have more fun there anyway.

    heal quick mang!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

    That sucks J, heal up quick. If you have to miss a couple weeks, Christmas-New Years is probably the ideal time. Unless of course it's snowing

    Watermarks are fucking lame, when presented (by the photog) on a public forum.
    Post stoke (WITHOUT WM's) or just charge entry.

    End rant.

    Hell, you didn't pay for the background, why should people pay you for the foreground?
