Mount Bohemia

Anyone skied there?  I want to know more about the place.

Here's my limited info:

900 vert
340 inches of snow
Huge tele contingent, tele owners?
Lots of black terrain
Pillows every where

Let me know what you know, post pics and I'll buy you two beers on my birthday.

I sold a Bohemia guy a pair of teleboots, he said he might post some stoke.

Re: Mount Bohemia

Has some very dedicated supporters.  I remember Bohemia doing quite well against much bigger ski areas and resorts in online voting contests.  One of those head-to-head bracket set ups where daily voting made a difference.

This video from 2014 was my first impression of Bohemia.  Can't say that I registered the free-heeling in the trees since most of the time the skis were well under the powder.

Re: Mount Bohemia

I frequent here quite a bit and it is everything you could dream of. Various terrain, no lift lines, excellent soft powder, whiskey flights at the bar, cheap lodging and a very strong tele crowd. I haven't skied there yet as i'm just transitioning to tele from snowboarding but you will never be disappointed! I will post pics as the slopes open up!

Re: Mount Bohemia

Welcome MWT.

I love a good barter!

Feel free to post pics from last season in the interim.

Re: Mount Bohemia

Those are the pics I took personally last year! First year skiing so there will be some shots of that in the thread as the season progresses!

Re: Mount Bohemia

That is a tough location. I always wondered how they managed to stay in business despite a pretty compelling storyline. According to Google Maps on dry roads: 6.5 hours from Milwaukee, 7 from Minneapolis, with the closest "city" being Green Bay at 4.5 hours. For most midwestern skiers, it'd be faster to fly to Colorado. I guess the best comparison for northeasterners is Quebec's Gaspé Peninsula.

Re: Mount Bohemia

The season pass here has been only $50 in the past and this year it is going to be $100 but it's only available during a limited amount of time. It's a huge draw as well due to the amount of lawlessness that is very prevalent here. I've had people come from out east and west and are already planning trips back. You just have to experience it really.

I'm doing a road trip to Colorado this winter. I want to stop at Bohemia along the way, but it adds almost 11 hours driving time between Albany and Denver, and more if there is bad weather.  OTOH bad driving weather is good skiing weather and vice versa, so the space for good skiing with reasonable driving is pretty small.

The other option I was considering is a 5 hour detour to ski Snowshoe WV. I've heard good things about that place and it's on my Max pass.
