I've heard good things about Whitecap. Anyone been there?
I'm curious about the cat skiing expansion at the Porkies.
Hopefully they'll open this year.
Boyne only OK compared to CRYSTAL??? Seriously? You might not get too excited about anywhere in the midwest then. Are you sure you aren't thinking about Boyne Highlands?
The Mountain has some pretty sweet terrain for the midwest.
Personally, I hate Whitecap. Of the Ironwood areas, I'd vote Blackjack, Indianhead, Big Powderhorn, then a distant fourth Whitecap.
The entire hill at the Porkies is flat. If you are looking for challenging, that ain't the place. I don't know anything about the cat skiing... could be cool, I guess.
No one has mentioned Marquette Mountain???
