I again have the privilege to be an ambassador for Michigan skiing with Michigan Snowsports Industries Association (MSIA). For years the MSIA has been promoting skiing in Michigan with their White Gold Cards and Cold is Cool Passport programs. As part of the ambassadorship I will be skiing more resorts around the state of Michigan. I will be posting on Facebook and Instagram at least a week in advance of the location that I will be skiing next. Please feel free to join me at these resorts. See you on the slopes! #goskimichigan ... See MoreSee Less
Last March, the Michigan Governor shut Ski Brule down with a month of the best snow and the best skiing yet to go. We thought and hoped that the pandemic would be over or at least improve, but it is not, in fact it is worse in Michigan, Wisconsin and Illinois. In the Ski Brule area, daily cases now exceed monthly total from June, schools are closed, medical facilities are closed, law enforcement is infected. There were zero COVID cases in Iron -Dickenson County March through May and now 1,000 cases. The U.P. daily totals exceed the monthly totals from June and our area has been moved back a ‘phase’ due to the significant increase in COVID cases. Masks are required everywhere, food and bar service is severely restricted, indoor gathering is significantly limited. Additional rules and enforcement have been implemented by the Health Department, Liquor Control Commission and MIOSHA. How will we, can we, operate Ski Brule? We have a legacy here. Ski Brule has continually operated for 64 years. Operated under the same family management for longer than any other ski facility in the U.S. We have provided our guests with a great family winter resort for years. But Covid-19 has changed everything. Our traditional model won’t work. Close gatherings, close friends, close families, personal service, face to face relations, handshakes and hugs are outlawed. And the financial risk of again being shut down, but now in the early season seems very high! We’ve look for answers and assurances but have received none! We now, finally, must advise our many, many guests, our friends and families of Ski Brule’s plans for Winter 20/21. We all know that things change quickly. The future is far less predictable, so what we provide here will likely change – hopefully for the better.
Our Goals For 20/21: 1. Keep staff and guests safe. 2. Remain financially sound for the years after COVID-19. 3. Offer what we can, safely and practically. Will we ski & snowboard? Subject to Covid-19 and mother nature, yes. Covid-19 and government orders that is, because orders of shut down could occur anytime. Mother Nature because we will need plenty of natural snow. ...

Full moon hike to the top of mountbohemia on Sunday night. Nine of us made the trek to the summit right after sundown. We wanted to get to the top and come down before the mountain refroze. Let’s just say It was a dreamy, surreal night. In this photo Sleepy John drops in on the top of the peak. #3rdcoastwave #mountbohemia #fullmoon #fullmoonboard #skimichigan #snowboarding #snowboard #sleepyjohn #keweenawpeninsula #fullmoonparty #moonlightride #snowboardingislife #snowboardinglife #906 #mtu #nmu #houghtonmichigan #calumetmichigan #copperharbor...

The most gorgeous winter day cross country skiing and hiking to frozen waterfalls! With a few stops for coffee and beer in between 😊
The ABR trails in Ironwood Michigan are the best cross country ski trails we’ve ever been on. Miles of well groomed trails that are clearly marked and lead you through the beautiful north woods. Gotta love days like this!

Michigan snow is my favorite snow. No really, there's a difference. It's called lake effect, you know because of that GIANT lake to the west of us, and when it dumps oh baby does it dump. Light and fluffy and rarely wind. Oooo it's a good combo...and usually ends up looking like a real life snow globe ❄️🤙🏼✨...
