sunny warm spring skiing. This was my first time skiing Timber Ridge, this little bump in the middle of farm land had the shortest lift I have even been on, but was still fun in the sun!

From that track it appears that vertical is just under 200 feet?

Push off the chair and hold your speed, turn right and skate down the steepest mougal free area of the hill LOL

Yep, 200vert sad I know LOL. This was my 37th place ever skied, trying to keep that number at or more than my age.
Have a little 6month old so the ski trips are local this year. Things will be much better next year, and when we strap her to some skis in a few more years

I would think terrain parks would be big in the Midwest. A good way to put some excitement into those meager verticals. Hve they helped attendance?

Yes they are very popular around michigan. I think if it was not for snowboarding and parks michigan wouls have lost a few "ski" areas by now. There are days I see more snowboards than skis on the hill. Parks have taken over top to bottom parts of the hills. It does help to challange your self as you get board of making turns, but there is a down side (see bittersweet post)
