Here we go folks, 2017-2018 season! Got a couple days on BP so far. November 20th and 24th. Still pretty thin in most places. Seems like CP has a deeper snowpack. Good turns were had with minor scratches to the rock board!

I actually got my first two days at St. Mary's on October 2nd and 3rd. Great snow for early October. Here are some pics.

Ok, now for some BP pics. The 20th I did The Roll. Great turns were had between the rocks. The 24th was up high in Current Creek. Way better coverage. No sharks. I think this was due to the October snow that did not melt off. That also has its own disadvantages. .... As far as WP/MJ goes, well, Parkway and Larry Sale is open! Ha!
