I live real close to Alpine. My boys got gift card for lift ticket for Christmas so were gonna make the trip. They may not have the best park, it's usually good. This weather has been bad for everyone. The runs there are much longer then Alpine. It's a great day trip for my son and me.
Plus it's 3 hour drive for me to Chestnut and that is the same drive for me to go to Granite Peak and would rather go there, actually we are as soon as boy gets his cast off.

I thought you were talking about devils head that place looks horrible. I was at chestnut sat and sun and it was as good as you could ask for. The only run that was icy was warpath.

I was talking about Devils Head, and it is usually a very good hill, with good park. Conditions got better here this weekend as we had snow and since Wed many resorts were making snow again with the very cold nights.

I haven't been there this year I just know many of our hills struggled to get the parks good we had a lot of high temps, rain, and generally bad weather that wasn't conducive to good park conditions.

S'all good gets confusing following all the posts at times.
Who's talking about what, where is where.
Chestnut did look cool from the website but again just to far for me to go when Granite Peak is the same distance and better park and elevations that are larger than the Michigan UP

Granite peak is nice, but doesn't compare to Mt Bohemia. Mount Bohemia - Extreme Skiing - Upper Peninsula of Michigan

True but Bohemia is beyond mine and my kids riding abilities and I think 7.5 hour ride.
I was kinda thinking the normal resorts Black Jack, Powder Horn, Ski Brule, Whitecap
