I've been in some of the glades at Nubs, but I'm not much of a tree/glade rider at all. The areas I've been in (between some groomed trails, and you know, that one section off to rider's left) were pretty tame and manicured. There could very well be more serious stuff than what I was in -- I just didn't seek that out. (I've taken my then 5-1/2-year-old son into the marked glades between trails at Nubs. (He also has done a run on their snowcross course with me.))

Ok, good to hear what you guys know about the place. I didn't mean actually going out of bounds and never expect anything here like it is out west. When I'm at local hills -due to stuff like the property thing you mentioned- I was referring to what are usually just smaller areas between trails that no one else seems to go through because they're not groomed or shoveled. That's usually because the groomers can' fit through them. They're quite basic but are usually where I at least find some decent powder. Of course, it's nothing in comparison to what I experienced in the west, but I still enjoy riding through them at small local hills such as Bittersweet. But I'm an all terrain guy, I like variety and I usually have fun no matter what the conditions are. So I don't really care about it, that would just be a little something extra being a a place in MI.

If you like a variety then make sure to find the time to someday book a trip to Granite Peak. Best that Wisconsin has to offer imho.

Plus its 700' vertical. The only place with more vertical in MI / WI is Bohemia, I believe.

You'll get a ton of glades at Bohemia. As well as cliffs, rocks, chutes, etc.

Yup,.. forgot to mention that!! If "Off Piste" is your thing, Mt. Bohemia in the UP is Definitely a place you should plan a visit to sometime. Probably a lot less driving than heading out west also.
(...of course I haven't been there myself, but to feed my SB addiction, I try to research all the MI. resorts. When I'm good enough,.. I'm DEFINITELY heading there!!!)

The suggestions for Granite or Boho or whatever in MI/WI are nice for someone who might actually be interested in touring the midwest, but not really applicable for OP.

True,.. but no harm in letting him know it's there. Especially if he's driving 24 hours to head west for that type of terrain. Probably take what,.. half that to drive it from were he lives?

Seemed like an appropriate, helpful addition. OP seems to have settled on Boyne for his freebie!!!

I know I definitely want to hear your report on BoHo if you end up going there this season!!

p.s. ...any update on Cab? Did all that snow they made melt away?? Just wunderin' if they would b opening this weekend!
