I'll be there for the regional Nastar pacesetter's trials. AJ Kitt will be there setting the pace! I know it's a weekday, but if any locals are going to be around, say hi if you see me.....

Blizzard GS skis and a green Mountain Hardwear shell.

Wow, UP Racer, if I could do it I most certainly would. I'm flying out to Stowe that day.

Nubs is getting dumped on right now too!
But then so are you, eh?

Have fun at Stowe! I'd take that over Nubs for sure!

We've had our share of snow, but we're missing the current storm. It's moving through south of us.

Any idea how much of the hill will be open at Marquette Mountain this weekend? The website says only one chair and three runs, but that may be last weekend's tally. We're thinking about doing a day up there on Saturday...worth the drive?

As for Nubs, I won't be able to be there on Thursday, but Friday's a possibility. I'm looking at a 3-day weekend and trying to figure out where to go...Western NY looked good until the rain started, so right now I'm eyeing the north.

Here's a brief update on the conditions at Nubs: I've been there the last three weekends, watching the snow accumulate each week - they've blown a very large amount of snow and have at least 48" of base on the groomed trails. The entire frontside is open from Easy Mile to Snow Pro (except the playpen, which they're working on), plus about half of Nubs South. I expect all of Nubs South to be open this weekend, and Pintail Peak to be going by Xmas week.

Glades: Southern Comfort Glade was open and nicely skiable with no bare spots. Powerline Glade was open too, but I didn't venture in. Arena & Bayview glades were poachable with hiking. Tower glade was roped off, & the Pintail glade won't be open til Pintail Peak gets going.

I've skied Boyne Highlands thrice as well - good coverage on the front side, but noticably poorer quality manmade snow and spotty grooming, as per usual. My next trip there will probably be on 6-for-one day on the 19th. Any Bears coming to that?

Walt, I would expect Marquette Mountain to be fully open lookers right of the Rocket chair. (if you check out the map on the website, it's listed as chair 1) Upper Rocket, and Upper snowfield probably won't be open, and Exhibition might not. Other than that, it should be good to go. The conditions are great, but we just don't have the snowmaking capacity of the lower MI ski areas, so the number of runs are limited.

I'm not going to be there this weekend, though.... I'm racing at a CMSC event at Brule.

I've decided to wait until later to do the Marquette Mountain thing. So I plan to be at Nubs Fri, Sat & Sun. I guess I'll miss UP Skier by a day.

Hey, I think I saw you at Nubs over the weekend. Were you the guy in the skin suit & shin guards skiing through the gates on Scarface?

I had a guy from Nubs in one of my ski lessons last year. Sounds like a great little hill. He was a really nice guy. I think he was an instructor there. I was also curious about Magicmtnpinhead. I skied at a place in Vt called Magic Mtn in the 70s. I heard that it closed. Are you from there?

Magic Mt. closed for a while, but it's since re-opened. The previous owner ripped out all the snowmaking before vacating, so it's 100% natural snow now and is sometimes referred to as MRG south.

Haven't been there myself (yet).
