Personally, I'm not really a fan of the Mounds. Some of the trails are ok, but everything is so overgrown and Genesee County won't let us go in an try to clean it up. The rest of it is deep mud pits that are bottomless because of the guys on tractor tires. The rock course is ok though. Don't get me wrong, I go there too often, but it's only because it's close and there aren't really any other options nearby.
If you want to "pop it's cherry" let's go up to West Branch. Lots of decent trails, and with the snow it'll be a good time. There isn't really anything that will grab your steps and rip them off either. It's mostly some hilly trails coupled with the snow and ice should be a good time. I know the trails rather well up there and have a pretty extensive collection of gps tracks so we should be good.
jkmorrow, name the time when your avaiable. I have Mon / Tues off. If there is enough notice, I could likely get a weekend day off. I would be Alter Ego would join us. Him and I both have winches to pull you out too! lol
I'll extend this invite to anyone else who wants to go too.
