PowPowPalooza!!!  Mt Bohemia, MI  Feb 4-7
 Come shred some Midwest POW!!!!! To keep the same vibe and good luck we had w/ the weather last season we are calling it PowPowPalooza to honor Powpowpirate and the meet-up she organized last season, and hopefully appease the Volcano (Mt. Bohemia is an extinct volcano).  We had an amazing time last yr at Mt Bohemia with 2 amazing powder days.. 1ft+ and a 2 ft+ day back to back!  Mt. Bohemia has some extreme terrain!  All runs are black diamond or double blacks, and even a few triple black diamonds (only one blue run)!  The terrain consists of trees, boulder fields, cliffs, chutes and a lot of powder usually!


Mountain Info

Mount Bohemia in Michigan's Upper Peninsula has the longest runs with the highest vertical and deepest powder in the Midwest. This hidden secret is a true treasure for backcountry skiers and riders. The average snowfall in Michigan's Keweenaw Peninsula is 273 inches. The lake effect snow is dry similar to western resorts and accumulates as powder which is untouched because we do not groom. This makes for a great morning to make the first tracks!  

Bohemia's two new sections the Outer limits has 100+ acres of inbounds backcountry skiing with 17 new runs even longer and trickier than before. Chutes, cliff drops and a half-mile wide forest will challenge skiers and riders as well as Pirates Cove on the north face guaranteeing the best snow on the mountain. 

NO BEGINNERS ALLOWED!

900 FOOT VERTICAL DROP + 75 RUNS!




  We have 2 cabin reserved w/ room for 3 more right now. 
  Trailside Cabins - $115 per night!
  If U have more people that want to come in your group U will have to make a reservation for lodging yourself with Mt. Bohemia.  Do it quickly.. not many cabins left!

I hope you will join us for the only real gnarly terrain in the Midwest!

I don't think I'm bad... I don't box, no karate... just here to make friends with everybody
