My season is just about done.  I may try to ride closing weekend at Devil's Head.

Does anyone even check this Midwest forum?  Bueller?

I just noticed this forum.  Where's Devils Head?  My local hills (Mpls/St. Paul) closed last Sunday but there are still some hills in Northern MN open for 2-3weeks.  I hope to get to Lutsen the weekend of the 12th.

Devil's Head is in Merrimac, WI.  It was supposed to close at the end of March, but some snow two Friday's ago made them extend the season until this weekend.  That is, until the rain and weather came this past weekend.  They are now closed.

I was supposed to go Sunday but I played poker until late Saturday night plus people bailed due to the rain forecast.  Looks like it was the right decision anyways.
 
My O-Matic had some the same black stuff on the base after a slushy day a few weekends ago.  Maybe it's stuff from the lift?
 
Until next season...

That stuff you are talking about is oil from the compressors for fake snow, you have to ride your board without wax. I was at Afton Alps a few weeks ago and it was so bad they were stripping peoples boards for free you just had to ask.
 
I am also going to Lutsen on the 12-13th hopefully it stays cold enough to keep some snow around.
