    Awesome, we're glad you'll be able to make it Tim. I'd love to make it back to Bohemia as well. I agree on the date of Jan 20 - 22. Last year that ended up being a really great time to go, and the extra space from Shredfest is definitely a plus.

    I am of course a definite again. I would prefer the 1/20-22 weekend simply because it gives me a whole month before ShredFest IV. This worked very well last season. Speaking of ShredFest, I'm very interested in hitting Bohemia after Tahoe this time. I would have loved to do it las time, but my schedule was too set. Marshall may also be able to do this.

    As far as travel to the Midwest Meet itself, I'd like to fly in and catch a ride with you as opposed to driving the whole way out again. This may change if more east coast riders decide to come out, and we can get a good carpool set up. For now though, I'll plan to fly in.

    started a poll Midwest Meet 2012

    Midwest Meet 2012

    January 6 - 8
    January 13 - 15 (16th=MLK day)
    January 20 - 22
    January 27 - 29
    February 3 -5
    February 10 - 12
    The third annual Midwest Meet will once again be held at Mount Bohemia, MI (in the Upper Peninsula)

    Bohemia's Website:

    "Mount Bohemia has the longest runs with the highest vertical and deepest powder in the Midwest. Bohemia is all-natural, and has no problem without snow guns. The average snowfall in the Keweenaw 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. 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."

    Last year the Midwest Meet was held January 22-24th. The weather was cold, but the backcountry riding kept us plenty warm. Conditions were perfect, and we found a ton of untouched powder.

    Based on the poll results we will have the 2012 Midwest Meet from January 20 - 22.

    Each year we reserve cabins at the base of the mountain. Each cabin has a bathroom and sleeps four (two bunkbeds). These have worked out well and were very affordable.

    Below is a 'buy now' button to pay for your lodging. You can either do it that way or Paypal Andrew Deehr (adeehr) the $86.30 directly for lodging to: Please include your forum name in the payment so Andrew can make sure he has the right person. We know most of your real names, but want to make sure we mark the right people paid.

    Again we are requesting more than may be needed, so we may have a refund/I'll buy food option ahead of us.

    Lift Tickets

    Last year several of us took advantage of the $99 season pass deal which worked out really well. Otherwise you can purchase lift tickets each day for around $50. If you plan to arrive earlier and ride Friday, definitely check into the season pass deal.

    Minneapolis, MN: Courtney - Driving from Minneapolis. Picking up Marshall and possibly Dennis and Graham at the Minneapolis airport.

    Green Bay, WI area: Andrew - Driving from Green Bay area, room for a couple people. Picking up Tim at the Milwaukee airport.

    Milwaukee, WI area: Nick - Driving from Milwaukee, room for a couple people.

    Detroit, MI area: Nolan - Driving from Detroit area, room for a couple people.

    If you're planning to drive and are willing to carpool let me know and I'll add your information here.

    Feel free to contact Courtney or adeehr for more information.
