    Raps,

    My preference is for Squaw, but there are lots of people from the board at both.

    If you're touring, I'd give the nod to Kirkwood.

    Great job on the thread RaccoonFace. Getting amped up (even though it's 90+ outside).

    Edit: Just noticed the post reserved for the GNAR game. That's sweet. Not that I'm going big this year, especially with a still-fractured tibia, but still.
