Burton and Mervin tents at Test Fest

Test Fest 2012 Recap

We rode a buttload of new snowboards and bindings, slept little, ate pretty much nothing but free hot dogs and drank pretty much nothing but free beer and red bull (thanks Burton, Salomon, Marhar, Ride and whoever else was slinging free food!).

Here’s a brief recap and a teaser for you.

Let it Snow, Let it Blow!

By next Friday, I would expect almost all of the lower-peninsula ski areas to have chairs running and gapers gaping. Although we’re off to a slow start, it’s still a start and hopefully the season will be in full swing for the Christmas holiday season.
