Boyne has made a challenge to any Mi ski area to see who will be open the latest. Mt Bohemia accepted the challenge. The loser has to donate a $1,000 to the winners choice of a charity. So it’s a win win

    Hey that's pretty cool.  I wonder what kind of shape Brule is in this year, they once went to mid May and they're small enough that it could be easier to maintain a slope.  Boyne still has a LOT of snow!    Kudos to them for doing this

    I love Mt Bohemia's post calling out that they don't have snowmaking, whereas Boyne, well we know what Boyne has some patents on.

    I think might be able to go longer because they have a groomer and can push snow around to cover up thin spots. Bohemia has lots of snow but no groomer

    Brule is scheduled to be opened through 4/22. They did not accept the challenge?

    Boyne is forecasted for 9”13” of snow. Not the 2 feet that Bohemia is excepting. It will be interesting to watch and see

    Boyne webcams are on YouTube and it's looks like they got at least 6". You could mistaken April 16th for March 16th.
