You're not the first person who has asked that question about this character, but honestly,

I'd like to head out west, but Searchmont is only an hour away and cheaper than Boyne. Speaking of which, how is Boyne? Might head down there to see friends and hit up the Highlands.

I like Boyne Highlands. The terrain is quite varied.

On one side you have a number of narrow'ish winding trails that are fun for cruising and popping off baby rollers. These are the trails to the left if you're looking at the trail map. These trails close around 4pm usually so I normally hit this early when I first get there.

On the far right on the North Face it feels almost hidden and remote. It takes a while to get over there if you're working your way that direction and these trails also close early so I normally hit these after I do the runs on the far left.

You get some steeps and some long LONG trails good for either mellow cruising through the condos or working on a lot of freestyle on your way down. It's kinda wild seeing condos along these trails because it feels like you're riding through a neighborhood down the street or something.

After those close up I begin hitting the main runs in the middle. Those runs have a bit of everything including a halfpipe and large kickers.

All three sections have glade runs but I've never messed with them at Highlands so I can't speak of the quality.

Highlands is probably my favorite resort out of these;

Boyne Highlands
Boyne Mountain
Caberfae Peaks
Crystal Mountain
Cannonsburg
Mt Holly
Mt Brighton.

I was thinking about this yesterday. I can say that barring this being on the weekend with my daughter that Lori and I would absolutely be down.

OK. I'll start looking in to some options then.

If you put 4 ppl in a hotel room slopeside it's $175 per person and that includes 2 nights and 2 full day lift tickets. Might not be a bad option. If you do 2ppl per room it's $225/person which still isn't an awful price for slopeside especially if you're bringing wife/girlfriend/etc.

Going larger... 8 ppl sharing a 4 bed/3 bath works out to $200/person including 2 full day lift tickets.

Or there's always those cottages we stayed in last year, just wanted to throw out some more options...

Hey guys, We are a small local michigan wax company and we'd like to offer anyone a chance to try our new wax at a discounted price. If anyone's interested you can contact us at clubsales.miiduu.com
We will also be at Crystal Mountain every weekend of the year if anyone wants anything or just wants to ride.

send some samples my way and I'll do a quick review & promo piece with maybe some interview questions etc., on our blog (agnarchy -- no rules just gnar)

Also, and I mean this in the most constructive way possible - get a real website on your own hosted domain. A bizarre domain like miiduu.com is not helping you establish brand name or web presence. It's fine to do a redirect if they're hosting your store, but you should at least have your own domain with contact page, etc.

Also, your contact page appears to be broken, it is returning an empty page, no 404 or other error message, just a blank page.
