Currently 60ish in Detroit, none of our local hills have started up the guns yet but a few of the resorts up north have been testing. Ski Brule in the Upper Peninsula started snowmaking in October, they opened over the weekend with the infamous WROD - but Brule is 11+ hours from Detroit.

310ft hill, Ha!! HV also claims they have 12 runs but we both know they really only have about 6 runs. But I guess it's better than nothing.

I feel bad for all those of you who don't have the real mountains in your backyard.

But I am thankful, because you really make me appreciate what I have.

I agree Hidden Valley does suck but it is better than nothing. I live about 25 minutes away and go out there about every weekend on the 10pm to 3am session when it is empty and cheap so it is not too bad, you can get a lot of runs in. That and they finally started grooming again around 11pm at night so it doesn't turn into a sheet of ice like it used to.
