When you have had a long week at work and it's only Thursday and there is nothing planned for the evening. what to do to unwind? Well i heading to a local ski hill and did some night skiing.
I arrived around 5pm and there were at least 8 school buses in the parking lot. But i did notice a big group on the hill where they race at they have their own lift.
After getting my lift ticket i booted up and headed out. The snow was a nice machine made packed powder due to blowing snow in over night on Tuesday into Wednesday
I skied until 6:30 and went in to the bar for a beer. The bar had a live band and was very busy with lots of people who did not have ski gear on. It looks like they draw a good crowd of locals in the evening looking for a drink and a bite to eat.
I went back out to ski some more, They have a section of seeded moguls, but they were a little on the icy side.
The natural moguls on their double black diamond run The Wall were much better
By 8 o'clock the kids started to leave which gave me an hour or so to ski and make some laps
While not the best skiing i have ever done, it sure beat sitting home on the couch watching TV.
Wow, my search of the interwebs say 300 foot vertical but some of those pics make it look like even less. You’re dedicated alright
I am sure the 300' is from the lowest point on the property. I think it skis in the 200-250' vertical range. Most of the runs are in the 1,000 long range, there longest run is 1,400 long. This is pretty standard skiing within an hour of Ann Arbor Mi I take what I can get
