My homie Tom hit me with a Lutsen trip idea, a ride in and ride out condo and a long weekend of shred with Tom and Kop sounded great to me after a short yet fun trip to Whitefish. Feeling like I hadn't ridden enough this season I needed another strong trip to focus on ripping with homies. No contests no expectations just some riding. We launched toward Spirit on the Thursday morning to meet up with Eric Christopherson and get some runs. It had just ice stormed a day or two before we went up. It provided interesting conditions and features which we would rip all weekend. The riding was fast and the fun factor high.

Trip was fun, thanks Tom for driving! I hope to get some video of us tearing around Eagle soon form Kopish.
I'll blast that when I can.
