Pine Knob Michigan or Alpine Valley Michigan
Where to go for a one day trip? Both between 3 and 3.5 hours for me never been to both, the latest pine knob videos the park looks insane but 90% boarder oriented and I’m coming off my second knee surgery so will probly not hit many features that sketch me out or are set up real weird. But damn it looks sick!!! Anyone been to both? Or either one ?
Pk all day.
Alpine was dope 10 years ago...
judging from PK's insta posts....definitely there. Looks like a real solid park setup
PK or Mt Holly for SE Michigan it has some fun terrain I find holy has longer steep terrain where PK just has the wall
Rope tow laps at PK are so good. I swear you can hit at least 100 rails in a session. Just make sure you have some good leather/ shitty gloves for the rope. It’s hard on gloves.
Never been to Alpine Valley, but Pine Knob's parks are legit. Rope tow is fun and they usually have a pretty good jump you can lap as well as a ton of rails setup. Haven't been to Mt. Holly this year but they usually have a good park with a rope tow as well.
If you're 21 the small lodge bar has a cool vibe and the bartenders have always been good to me.
On a side note, Mt. Brighton is the worst overall mountain and is expensive, but their park is usually pretty fun. I've mostly skied here this year because I have an epic 4 day pass, which gives you free days at Brighton.
Overall I'd say my favorite South East Michigan "hill" is Pine Knob.
All times are Eastern (-5)
