Well jolson05, I know you know I tend to overpost over in that other thread that YOU started. I feel dumb double posting but I justify it knowing most guys aren't really checking the current conditions threads.
mahanjoe, I'm not sure if you were kidding around or being serious. That's the hard part about the internet. I approach digging a pit like I do setting a track. Just like I wouldn't set a big wide track all the way across the slope I want to ride, I wouldn't dig a big whole in the middle of the slope I know myself or others will possibly ride. If done right a pit just like a skin track can be a beautiful thing that other guys can utilize and it kind of tells a story. My take anyways. Take care.
