Default porkies

I've been trying to get up there for the new snowcat backcountry. I also heard the view of the lake is pretty sweet and 2 for 1 lift tickets.

If anyone gets up there, I'd love to hear a review.

I went there probably about 6 years ago. One thing to take into consideration is that they don't make any snow. I went there the first week in January, and all I really remember about the place is that there wasn't enough snow. There were weeds growing through the snow, and there were mudspots in a lot of places. I think this year has been pretty light on snow throughout the country so I wouldn't suggest going there until at least mid january. I've been to Indianhead though which is maybe an hour or so from the Porkies, and I remember that place being quite a bit better as far as snow conditions. If you're looking for a place that's a step up from other midwest places like Cascade and Devil's Head, pretty much anywhere in the UP is going to fulfill that though.
