DIY Muddy Monday and The Upcoming Haps.

What are you supposed to do when no resorts within 5 hours are open? Make your own snow and shred it, duh. Master Mtn Ops Rowdy Ryan took advantage of one night of cold temps to make some homemade snow.

Shabam, one night of making.

Shhh theres a session coming.

We got it all sorted out.

Then I took an artsy shot.

This is weird.

We had to switch out rails due to lack of in-run for ol big poppa.

Notice the landing has already melted.

After shred.

Callin' it a night.

So little time, so much fun.

With Snowshoe's recent cold spell, they were able to push out a crazy amount of snow. With everyone's schedules hard to work around, this was a short evening trip minus Rowdy Ryan who had to work. Notable happenings of the day, Stevie G and Alex landed some backflips and Sunny Seth got in a MMA fight with himself. We got a few shots we may put out in an edit here soon, until then here's some eye candy.

Stevie G goin' for a hike.

Alex spells "run" outloud while he shovels snow.

An den he gets in scenic shots.

An den he tries to bury me in snow.


Look just your size!

An den he flattens out the run in.

Sunny Seth is a workhorse, goes hard with that shovel.

An den Sunny Seth goes too hard for his lip.

Pole Jam setup next to the kicker.

Stevie G spinnin' free.

Stevie G goin' bonkers!

2010 Snowshoe Open.

This Saturday, the 13th, at Liberty Mountain Snowflex Centre in Lynchburg, VA. As far as I can tell there is no registration fee, everyone just has to have a lift ticket. Comp starts at 7pm and goes till 12 midnight. Usually weekend rates are $7 an hour, so at most the comp will be $21. Not sure when they open for the day so maybe call up there or something. The rail jam is going to be jam format judged on two features, one being a brand new feature Snowshoe is unleashing in their own park this winter. Not sure about the format for the big air.

Here are some sites...
three different Facebook events, facebook event, and facebook event.
Liberty Mountain Snowflex Centre, website and facebook.
