Hiking, adventure racing, winter sports, triathlons, etc.
Has anyone skied in the western UP? Curious about some of the resorts and which ones are worth a visit. Any idea how late there will be decent snow up there?

Searchmont in the Soo is closer than the western U.P. and they advertise the most vertical in the midwest, plus the exchange rate and great Italian food.

Marquette Mt. - Marquette. Lots of fun w/a great town. There's a ton of mt. bike trails up there as well in the summer.
Mt. Bohemia - Just N. of Houghton/Hancock. Hit this for sure.
Mt. Ripley - Houghton/Hancock
Porcupine Mt. - An hour southwest of Houghton - on Lk. Superior - very cool.
Indianhead - About 20 minutes from the MI/WI border on US 2
Ski Brule - see Indianhead
....I am missing one or two I think...
They'll have snow for at least another month to 6 weeks. The bigger question is whether or not they'll be open b/c of lack of skier visits.

Big Powderhorn is also near Indianhead in the Ironwood area. Plus it's near Copper Peak, the HUGE ski-flying hill. You can ride it in the summer (the mountain, not the actual skijump!), and there's 5 awesome waterfalls nearby on the Black River.
