Beautiful day out there today. Still my favorite skill hill in this region. Even Lutsen can't beat it for pure, fun skiing. Some places require too much time before you can actually take your first run and skiing is what skiers want to do. Not drive, not look for parking, not spend time in lines, not fight for space to get gear on. Just ski.

Best spring skiing I ever experienced!

We were there on the 19th skiing with that guy.

I just spent the weekend there, that's where that bluegrass festival was Jason Bozo Bohaczek
