Ann Arbor Snow Record

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I don't know about New Hampshire but Ann Arbor, Michigan is having a record snowfall, currently at 90". March also has been a record at 21.5." Normal season average is 53".


Unfortunately this has very little to do with alpine skiing :.

In this rare instance I understand if this post is deleted as non-skiing related .

What about Brighton? Have they had a record year? Has anything there that was previously unskiable opened up this year? Maybe terrain that in a normal year you'd have to repel into can be reached more easily this year

Funny though, out of five storms in Ann Arbor that approached a foot of snowfall I only got to see two of them as I was in CenCo for the others

Mt. Brighton says to check back on their website at noon to see if they are going to open up today! Me, I'm heading to Solitude, UT for 2 weeks of spring skiing.

Bumpfreaq you are such a smarty pants! Why is it we alway get more snow here after we close at Holly? Headed up north again this weekend. Drive time let's me catch up on my audio books! Just waiting for the ice to get off the water to start paddling. If you and Mrs Bumpfreaq want to come do some kayaking when it warms up a little, drop me a pm when you get back. I've got boats, PDF's and Paddles if you need to use a couple. The Sandhill Cranes are returning to nest over in the wetlands along with everthing else. Have fun at Mary Jane!

Must be great traying in the Arb. Oh the memories. Well, the memories of that aren't that clear, but I know we did it.

You could ski down the stadium stairs. That'd make for great pics in a TR. Bring it.

M Go Blue!

There was one time many years ago when my son and I skied on the hill from the Medical Center entrance down to the Arb parking lot right next to the steps. We then "bootpacked" up the steps and did it a few more times. Even though that hill is probably about a 20-25 degree slope (MAYBE 40-50 feet vertical), the Michigan wet slop that day allowed for 1 or 2 turns at most. Anything more and we just stopped dead in our tracks. Trouble was, straightlining it didn't gain enough speed for any fun either.

Thanks p-g I'm not much of a water person but kayaking has always intrigued me. I'll keep it in mind.
