  1. The leaves are starting to change their color.
  2. think it is a share vid time limit thing, try this, works for me, now. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1IzPmXtEZ7KolGnrUgSKM0YI6_74niz2y/view?ts=5c904010
  3. Snow conditions at Loon are an 11. Indy car style.
  4. Loon is good, good snow, good coverage, stayed late and was walking on the fresh groomed on the way out, should set up well overnight for nice carve for next day,, Friday. Friday , good carve snow, additional inch over the day. Stayed cool enough over the day to stay good snow. The snow rain line at 3pm i93 south bound was exit 30.
  5. At first signs of snow melt, am doing an explore of 400 acres for trials event, the 600 acres across the street has already been looked at and in the opinion of a few local Pro's has International potential. The 400 has not even been looked at , and the land owner said it has some good big out croppings of rock and stand alone rocks of good size. The topos of the 400 look to be very good/unique. Last October I saw some of this 400 from the property line, and it looked good, with some really nice rocks. Untouched old growth kind of forest that did not appear to be that much of a mess. When I say "International Trials Event" , that is all the Champs from around the world, are looking for the next big challenging rock formations, to push their skills to the next level, this place has these rocks, and the amount of them, to have a multi day event, with a field for parking. staging area, etc. So this could be something that may turn out to be a really big deal, if everything works out well. We are going to find out. Late March, early April, when ever the snow melts enough to see what is on the ground, southern exposure, etc , approx. exit 20, let me know. this link was Berwick maine rock and roll trials , NETA
  6. Am going to guess Loon got a little more snow and is usually a bit fluffier/lighter, because of the higher elevation. We got another inch over the course of the day. Am going to try for early tomorrow, and Friday, it may warm up Friday, but still should be good. Actually messaged him yesterday with a pic of the new to me 10 hours run time (mint julep) Beta EVO 300 Factory trials bike. Was riding it on the ice yesterday in 0 deg f. Wheelies. I do not have a typical plan, other than if the snow is good , I go.
  7. Exit 28, 5 to 6 inches of good cold snow fell last night, a wee bit heavier than the last time, but get it quick as it is slowly warming up. Should be good @ loon
  8. I have ridden this boards twin, the large amount of camber is not noticed, it rides like a regular cambered metal board.
  9. I had a guy on the chairlift very politely telling me that I would be a much better snowboarder, like many other people of greatness, that are very good at it, that he knows, If I were to gently initiate and gently/lightly and carefully release my energy thru the snow. He said that a person who can do this is truly a very talented snowboarder. And should be the goal of all snowboarders. He then said, that I was hitting the turn with all my weight at the very start of the turn, and then continuing in this manner and making big giant ruts In the snow, to which the skiers really do not like. I respectfully repeated his new method, and said that I would keep that in mind and give it a try, and thanked him for his outlook and knowledge. I then asked him his boot size, and that I can get him set up in some demo gear if he would like to try alpineboarding.... silence.
  10. 6 inch plus of good cold snow at exit 28 this morning
  11. Is the mondo size 24.0 ?, the liner says 240, if my vision is correct. The box pic #'s are a bit fuzzy, just trying to be sure, you may want to state the size in print type, for all to see, thanks
  12. With much regret, I could not do a single carve today any where , even being on the MK. Spent some time w/others talking big about last Wednesday in the bunyan. We need another snow storm. The skiers seemed to like it a bit, sliding and the likes.
  13. Very good snow at Loon on Wednesday, it is Thursday and raining/warm, but it is a light rain. Thinking the snow will hold and be good Friday as it cools off again.
  14. Sunday river carving is good at all of Barker, Monday Mourning trail, etc
  15. 6 to 7" of cold snow, with a layer of very fine sleet on top. I93 exit 28
