Anyone gonna be hitting up Northstar for closing weekend. I'm hoping to leave Portland Thurs afternoon/eve and ride Fri-Sun and then come back Sun eve. I'm really hoping my buddy makes it, but I was curious if anyone else would be interested in going. Weather should be sunny Fri-Sun with tacky conditions from Wed-Thur rain. Sounds like a perfect way to end the lift accessed season. If anyone's interested in carpooling PM me or if you're just planning to be there hit me up as well. I've been to Whistler a bunch but haven't checked out N* yet. Would be great to catch a ride.

For you N* regulars, how do you think this closing weekends conditions will be? Muddy mess or perfect tacky trails? I've only been once before in the middle of summer, not sure how this weeks rain/snow will affect the trails?

Hero dirt on its way... for at least a couple of runs. Too much rain and they may shut it down from the erosion bullsh**.

man that sucks..sorry to hear.....hope he is ok....send him my best wishes
haha it rained here, so he was drifting in an empty parking lot. he started hydroplaning and ran sideways into a curb and f*cked his wheels up.. bent an axle at a 45 degree angle...

hes great, just moneyless with a broken car lol... and definitively not an idiot. hes actually quite a smart guy. hes such a great, smart guy, hes kinda like a god walking among us mere mortals. If one were to call him an idiot, it would be the deepest insult possible, because hes not an idiot. hes really great.

You stay classy Papasmurf.

Agreed. Double-check Friday if they're open then. Might be disappointed if they decide to close this weekend if you're driving down from Portland. Otoh, there's plenty of riding at Tahoe.

i do too, when i comfortable with the setting. The parking lot smurf chose had just been re-sealed, so it was smooth as butter on top, add the rain (first time drifing in the rain) and tight curbs everywhere, and a Front wheel drive car, and 30mph and an e-brake, and something bad is bound to happen... :rolleyes:
