Thought I would bring this one back...
I used to hike Bohemia in college, I went to Mich. Tech. It was awesome then. I had always thought it was 1000 ft. vert, they say 800 now so who knows. I skied it last season for the first time with lifts.
First let me say that this is NOT midwest skiing as you have ever experienced it if you haven't ever hiked anything. There is no manmade snow, and it is strange skiing on midwest natural if you haven't before, it's not champaigne powder. That being said the snow is good. The mountain is not really groomed except for two runs that have been cut near the main chairlift. They aren't that great.
The real action comes off of the new chair that wasn't opened until late last season, in fact when I skied there you would just come shooting out of the trees and a bus would continuously run to drive you back to the one chair! Very unique. This side of the mountain is simply awesome. They have cleared a few runs that are quite steep. It's the only place in the midwest where your quads actually burn after a run like out west. In fact one of the steeper runs is almost impossible to ski aggressively whole without stopping.
The whole hill is open, take the trees as you like. There are some cliff bands so you have to know what is back there. Most are 5-10 footers though there is one 40. Just be careful and keep your eyes open. The trees are open enough to go through mostly without a problem.
The base is really something...yurt style tents! Again very unique. The signs at the base say not for beginners and they mean it. There are chances to really get hurt if you don't know what you are doing. The patrol even has a search dog just in case. I know the non-believers will think that this whole story is BS, but for the midwest, this is THE place to be if you are an expert skier that can ski off the groomers.
Hopefully they will get some snow up there, after a 2 foot dump it has mostly all melted.
