Ski areas, especially the small, commuter-oriented areas that dot the midwest, should have at least a handful of features arranged to some semblance of terrain park flow on the very first day of winter operations, if not sooner.
It’s that time of year,with Thanksgiving marking the official start for the winter season at most resorts, the snow’s falling and you want to ride, should you take an early season trip and get some of that snow?
Cold weather was supposed to be on the way soon, bringing with it the promise of early-season skiing and riding across much of North America. Unfortunately, many of us have had our hopes dashed by unseasonably warm weather which appeared seemingly out of nowhere.
Derelicts like me can’t wait for the snow to start piling up here in Michigan and maybe get a few good days in before we head up north or out west for a vacation later this winter. If you’re itching to get out and ride local, this is what you can expect…
