david_z Too early for me to call it, Caberfae might be in line for a good amount of snow before they open on Saturday, and if so I probably end up there instead of Boyne.

I have to drop some stuff off at my father-in-law's on the way, which complicates things, because he's not actually on the way to either (he's much closer to Cab than Petoskey).

I'm leaning towards Cab at this point but really I will end up wherever the snow is good.

sabatoa I hope it pans out, we're heading up Friday after work and staying through the weekend. Looks like everyone is blowing up there.

david_z I'm seeing weekend estimates of 5-8" here in GR, and up to 12" north in TC/Petoskey/Gaylord areas.

Starting tomorrow.

I'm heading north Friday or Saturday...

ctoma The forecast is calling for snow on Sunday in the metro Detroit area, the local news stations are reporting there will enough that it will need to be shoveled.

Warren Miller movie at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor on Friday, I'll probably skip it again this year. Wishing we could get good movies here instead of the annual Warren Miller flick.

Sun & Snow swap sale in Plymouth this weekend, hoping my K2 Happy Hour with Rome 390 bindings finally sells.

david_z we got about 5" of snow yesterday afternoon (well, only about half of that stuck to the ground, but there was easily 4-5" on the hood of my jeep and on the deck, etc.).

Shame it's all gonna melt today. Debating putting the rail out in the backyard but with the ground being so wet underneath, I think that might be a bad idea.

david_z That's about what I figured for this weekend based on what I heard about Boyne Mountain. Nubs and Highlands had the snow reserved to last thru this week. Cold temps mid-week next, so hopefully we'll be good to go after that.

sabatoa Weekend outlook;

Boyne Mountain and all points south: Closed
Boyne Highlands and Nubs Nob: Open
Ski Brule (UP): Open

NEXT Weekend could be relatively good. John Dee is calling 8-12" for the NWLP between December 5th and 10th and they'll be blowing snow on top of that.

david_z Nubs had a lot more snow than Highlands. I think both resorts can weather the weather thru one more weekend, although the Boyne might be stretched pretty thin and might not make it
but beyond that everyone will need help from mother nature in the form of colder Temps and/or snowfall.

sabatoa Well Mother Nature, you stink.

Banked my weekend on the fact that Holly would be open Saturday and the rain and warmth were too much so I only had the one day up at Highlands. Got a lot of laps in and started easing my way onto some side stuff. My board is like a different ride now, feels more solid and stiffer than it was in the last few seasons. Tail presses require some technique instead of just throwing my weight at it lol.

Next weekend isn't looking great, places everywhere might be closed, but the following should have some places up north open.
