    So what is it that everyone loves about Platty? Not a troll; a serious question. I've never been there because it's a heck of a cruise for me, but it sounds like maybe I should make the trip.

    thanks

    Dead God I love that mountain. They should do this every year, weather cooperating. Platty just extended DH season by an entire month.

    Awesome day of riding, weather felt like opening day in May. The trails are pretty much clear all over. One more would be nice but three extra weekends... couldn't ask for anything more! :thumb:

    another few degrees in the forecast and MAYBE.

    and I'll get killed for saying that. Plattekill needs the cold temps and snow. The mountain gets packed in the winter
