Im guessing they will be closed.I believe they open the following weekend for the season.
Depending on your sons age,dog party 2 is at twisted on march 17.
Schuss snow challenge is on the 31 st,it's a blast to watch,and even more fun to try the hill. There is suposed to be a new offroad park in Mancelona,just down the road from schuss mt.I have never been there,maybe they will be open?
If the operators were on their game,they would be pushing for people to come check them out after snow challenge,since they are so close.

Too bad they closed.I heard very little about the place,but wanted to check it out.
I think there is plenty of intrest for a park in that area,if they would of advertised more.I realize it takes a lot of time and money,plus time for to get the word out.
If they ever open again,I will be sure to make the trip asap.

awesome i will be up there then thanks gary. at least i think that's gary (wdkduster). i would rather goto twisted trails instead of silver just because there is more to do there at the park. it makes for a much longer day. i've been bringing my son up to silver since he was 3 every opening weekend and now it's time for him to start learning how to drive on the trails.
