When I was young and didn't know better I skiied there often...then I found the Rockies and only go once or twice a year. I was friends with Steve Kircher in grade school when we went every weekend. I have a friend whos Uncle owns the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island and he intoduced me to him. We skiied and raced together many years. They also own Big Sky in Montana which I have never been to but hear it is like out west. Those were the days...there are also Boyne Highlands a little farther North. The Zoo bar is there and is a drunk fest. The spring fling at BM is a drunk fest also. Why is it you can ski drunk as a skunk but not drive or snowmobile? I have seen many broken bones (used to be a ski patrolman) from drinking and trying inverted aireals (flips). The only problem are the lines....15 min to get up and 15 sec to get down.
