Don't want to jinx it but there's potential for 8"+ at Bohemia Tuesday and Wednesday this week...

So that's what in keeping my eye on for this weekend with a possible day at nubs Nob on the way home Saturday.

Plan B might include cannonsburg/highlands/nubs or maybe a jaunt down to seven springs PA.

I thought about you when I saw that this morning. TWC has it @ 70%. Here's hoping LE doubles that for ya!

Welp there we go just made the reservations for Boho. It's a bargain, too at $95/person/night, including meals and lift tickets.

Planning on the overnight drive Wednesday. We should miss most of the snow as far as driving is concerned but hopefully conditions will still be good on Thursday.

Good luck!

Of course we'll be expecting video you know? . Have a great trip!


I am not going to get my vacation days for either this fri or next mon. So,.. I believe I will be coming down with a nasty stomach bug thur morning. If I chicken out, it means driving solo for an overniter and riding sat n sun all sleep deprived n tired.

Sounds like a good way to get hurt to me. (..on the slope or on the road!)

I hope I can get some video. There are only two of us going. It's such a pain in the ass to take video especially if you're trying to get natural terrain/glades -- so much setup to get good shots.. I guess I can lug my GoPro pole around for a few hours though. Something better than nothing.

I accidentally ordered some new goggles to go along with a new jacket that I'll probably never wear. They should be here tomorrow. Video or not, at least I will look good

boots on the ground tell me Marquette has 4" already... still calling for totals in the 5-10" range for most of the Keewenaw, and snow to fall persistently until late tomorrow night.

Looks like no matter what, tomorrow is going to be a better day than Thursday but I'm hoping that being midweek like this, that all 550 acres of Bohemia don't get tracked out tomorrow. Save a *little* bit of powder for me and Joe!!!

I just realized I have ended every single snowboard season with either an MRI or CAT scan lol

I'm about to head into the MRI tube to see if I ended a second season in a row with a broken back. If the results are good I'm shredding this weekend and more next week. Wish me luck!
