I'm headed up to Door County shortly where they just got 6 inches of snow. Hopefully I'll get some nordic skiing in (and build a snowman)
I always hated going to Door County as a kid. Growing up in SE WI, it was a long drive, and getting motion sick made it even worse.
Hope to figure out how to either go out west, or hit up the Upper Peninsula and ski Mount Bohemia. Did that with my dad a few years ago and it was fricking awesome (except for the part where my flight home got cancelled and I had to drive with my dad to Minneapolis and fly to Chicago from there). Wouldn't want to spend a week there or anything, but they get some awesome snow, and you can definitely go a whole weekend without hitting the same line twice.
Maybe Alta/Snowbird. Flights to SLC are easy, and while I wasn't crazy about Park City/Canyons, the one day I spent at Snowbird was awesome. A relative just bought a place at some ski area in Idaho...never skied Idaho, but I wonder if we could swing a visit there.
I went to school at Michigan Tech so I know Mount Bohemia. Its weird though that I really didnt do any snow sports back then. I did snowmobile around a couple of times but that was about it. I just recently (last 5 years) got into cross country skiing. I wish I had gotten into skiing and golfing back when I was in school. The resources around that area are great for that.
Devils Head also just got a pretty good blast of snow (from mother nature that is)
Congrats! Is this a career-booster for you? What kind of work do you do?
