    Definitely a much more low key event, but I still had a good time. The lower visibility was a bit of a bummer, but the snow conditions were decent.

    We're sitting at MKE waiting to head back home, where it's warm and rainy. Definitely looking forward to the .2 meet!

    Saturday and Sunday we had spring conditions, temperatures in the mid to high 30s and fog. Visibility was limited at times, but we still had a blast.

    Thanks to everyone who made it out!

    14 riders from 8 states!

    Spring in January

    The drive to the Keweenaw felt noticeably different this time around. The roads were clear, the sun was shining and it was 50 degrees. It felt just like our last trip to Bohemia... in March. Once the sun was down, temperatures dropped into the low 40s which was still 20 to 30 degrees warmer than we would expect in January. As we rolled into Calumet we were met with thick fog that made it difficult to see the hotel driveway.

    It was 25 degrees when we woke up Friday morning. All of the slush in the parking lot was frozen solid. We opted for a slightly later start to let the snow soften up. By 11am the snow was pretty nice and it felt like spring riding with much better coverage. The weather kept people away and we didn't have to wait for a chair all day. While it wasn't the powder we expect in January, we had a great time. As we drove back to Calumet, it started to rain. After dinner and some time at George's bar, the roads and parking lots were super slippery.

    This morning it's 33 degrees, and the rain is done. We're hoping for another day of soft snow and no crowds. If the rain holds off until 5pm we'll be in good shape!

    Here's the view from the top of the hill with some interesting clouds moving in.

    If anyone can bring me an extra jacket I would owe you big time. I should have enough other layers so even if its just a shell something waterproof since the weather is looking a little wet. Mens large/XL should do.

    Please and thank you.
    I have an extra orange and white XL jacket I used to fit into I will bring along. We'll be there in the afternoon on Friday.

    Bohemia

    I didn't know that Bohemia was this weekend.

    I was speaking to Adam at skis.com yesterday (you can see his ski review vids on utube) While talking to him I was telling him about the changes over the years compared to Salomon blades and told him about this site which he was checking out while talking to him. He was very impressed and interested.

    If there is another get together at Bohemia someone might want to let him know as he would definitely come and bring some of the other testers with him. Skis.com isn't far from Detroit.
