Mt. Bohemia, Michigan

"No beginners allowed"
post #62 of 84
From the legitimately black diamond runs on the lower mountain, to the strong intermediate groomers on the upper mountain, to the wide variety of gladed terrain all over the hill, there is no Eastern ski area this side of New York State with as much challenge. Whether you get there next week or next year, one visit will breathe life into the various taglines associated with Blue Knob Ski Resort: catch “Altitude with Attitude” on “The Skier’s Mountain” where you better “Ski Good or Eat Wood.”

For Hunter Mountain on a Weekend:

"Good luck, buddy"
And I thought it was... "Lock and load"


My fave was the old Boyne Mountain one...an unravvled roll of toilet paper and just said..."Boyne Mountain, We've got the runs"

I always got a kick out of a billboard that used to be on I-70 towards Denver, when you are going 3 miles an hour in the ski traffic coming out of the mountains...

It simply said:

"If you skied Eldora today, you'd be home by now."


And the old slogan from where I grew up as a kid...

Grand Targhee: Snow From Heaven, Not Hoses

(unfortunately, GT has started making snow these days, so it isn't really true anymore...)

Mt. Baldy's "Real Skiing, Real Close" slogan is true, every 3rd or 4th season.

Mt. Waterman used to use the "Snow from Heaven, Not from Hoses" slogan.
Unfortunately one of the reasons it has not been open to the public since 2001.

I've really got to make it out there.

Copper: "Do it right the third time"

Oh wait, that's the staff motto.

The official one used to be, "Where the skiers ski." Then they changed it to "Where the skiers ski and boarders ride", but I think it's changing again.

Blue Mountain, PA, 1100 vertical feet of icy pellets and out of control teenagers.
post #74 of 84
they really have 1100 vert? i didnt think anything in PA had that. huh
post #75 of 84
actually something like 1096 os something like that, regardless, they can't make snow to save their life, thier grooming is performed by the new "helen Keller" bombadiers and it's becoming more like Mt. Creek
post #76 of 84
well, you cant have everything in our area can you, snow or a hill, take your pic. what do you mean by the groomer statement? are they robotic or something?
post #77 of 84
not robotic, they just do a horrible job of grooming and snow making, lots of death cookies because they don't pile the snow into whales and let it dry, they blow, spread and it freezes up. They also blow at too high of temps. Instead of letting it go to 29 or 28, they start at 32 or 31, its just too humid here and it becomes a grandular grit, almost like fine sleet. Its a shame, it could be a little gem for Pocono Mtn grade skiing. To be honest, despite the vertical, its usally so bad, its not worth going. I'd rather drive an other 40 minutes and hit Elk Mountain. Just ask Phil ( do not resist Phil, lets hear it)

Granted Blue has the highest vert in the State but we do have a few 1000 footers... Elk Mt, Sno Mt = 1000k, Blue Knob = 1072k.

Yep, but lousy uphill capacity...just slooooow.

i do want to give Blue Knob, a try, but if I'm headed that far, I might as well just go to Vermont where I have a place to stay.

Keystone: Pure. Simple. Pleasure. - obviously not coined by anyone who had eaten lunch in the Summit 'restaurant'.

Or skied Mozart to get to the Outback during spring break.

Ski & Ride School motto is: Go Further. Says it all really and not to difficult to remember when at work.

Treble Cone NZ does not seem to have a slogan. Stickers and website is:

Treble Cone, Wanaka, New Zealand.
