ok I just wanna make sure if i run a catless Down pipe i wont have to be taking it off anytime soon. Im not gonna be running race gas anytime soon i dont think

<-- Ski Patrol at Mt. Holly
Ahh Theres also Pine Knob, i live like 2 minutes away.

Anyone thinking about selling their subie? I want one and have cash!

Pine Knob is OK. The same OK as Alpine Valley and still better than Brighton. But there is a reason why Mt. Holly sees more patrons in a ski season than all other ski areas south of Boyne, combined. I'm spoiled, I know.

It's lightly and tastefully modded, but you'd have a tough time finding a used bugeye that's been modded AND cared for as well as Andrew's car. Definitely shoot him (wrxedya) a PM and take a look at it.

Never ridden PK. AV is ok. Anything is better than MB (this coming from someone who grew up riding there) but to say MH can "spoil" someone...

I'd rather go up north or out west to waste my time in the snow. Living at the foot of Mt Bachelor for a winter can "spoil" you to never want to ride the crap around here.

That said, I'll probably go slideways a couple times this season at some craphole around here.

Snow snob!

I like Mt. Holly, though it's not like going up north or out east or west. Pine Knob is ok as well, but we usually go there because it's cheap to go with my fiancée's school's ski club.

I'm getting excited for the season though. I think we're going to try to go up north 2 times a month to visit our friends and ski.

Probably try Crystal Mtn and Caberfae because they're relatively close to our friends' place, but we definitely want to make it back to Nubs Nob which we all really liked.

For the drive I think Holiday Valley in western NY is the best we can get. It's a 5-6hr drive and 990ft vertical. Its easily twice Boyne and Nubs for an hour longer drive. I think lift tickets are comparable or cheaper.


Mt. Holly spoils me because...

1. They are likely the most efficient bump in MI when it comes to making snow (large enough pump and enough snow guns to blanket the entire hill in a night, and for being man made it isn't the average sheet of ice and crumbles).
2. They actually have a high-speed lift making it easy to make a lot of runs.
3. All of their lifts work and can operate if necessary (unlike Brighton that has 1 working lift).
4. For being a tiny mountain they really do have a good range of runs/terrain between the lazy shallow slopes, the wide moderate slopes, or the steeper faster slopes with some moguls here and jumps, boxes, and rails there.
5. I ski for free (and can usually get one or two free tickets).


I've been to Caberfae once that I remember and I vaguely recall there being a second slope off in the back that was less crowded and better. The only time I've skied Crystal was racing in HS and I crashed, tore the binding off my ski, and used my shin to shear off one of the bamboo gates.

I'd be up for a Nubs trip if people want to do a Saturday or Sunday day trip (leave at 4am, arrive around 8:30 for breakfast, hit the hill at 9am for first tracks, ski 'til 4pm and get home by 9pm).

You're probably going to miss Cali in general. I have been living in the midwest for almost 2 years this December and haven't been back. I think it's starting to hit me now that I am getting kinda homesick and miss pretty much the city I knew my whole life. It was cool in the beginning because it was a new area, scene and going to college. Nothing bad here though, standard of living is more than enough reason to stay here. Hope to meet you when you move here, nice to meet a fellow CA member.

I still go to University of Toledo, finally graduate in May. Hopefully everything (classes and credits) transfer out to the Oakland CC. California junior colleges have different classes and curriculum to make you a Junior when you transfer to any of their CSU's and UC's. When I transferred to UT, some classes didn't transfer so I came in as a 2nd Semester sophomore.

Sorry bro I don't leave in that area so I don't know anyone. I am not sure how big the car scene is there either. You should sign up at misubie.com I have the same SN there as well. On a good note: I think the schools around here are so much easier than Cali. Trust me you'll notice

Looks like my girlfriend and will be buying a house in Rochester Hills. We'llbe in the area. There is also a local meet in Troy (short drive), every other Monday.

I've mountain biked there and I'm not sure I'd make that drive to ski there. If you want real skiing in the Midwest then there's no question as to the best place, Mt. Bohemia. No snowmaking, no grooming, no beginners, no out of bounds, no bs. The entire place is a mini Arapahoe Basin, right down to the font on the signs. Too bad Lac Labelle is ~10 hours from here. I miss real winters in Houghton.

Edit: Take your rock skis just in case

If you go to Nubs, let us know. I know Erin and I would totally meet up with you guys if we're visiting out friends up north. I think Nubs is a good hour and a half from their place, but definitely worth going.
We're probably also going to hit Highlands this year as we got 2for1 tickets when we went to Warren Miller last saturday.

On a side note, my brother and sister in-law had 40" dump on their ski hill in the last day. Of course, they're in Alaska, so...
