Vail had reported 6″ overnight, which was a lie. Consistently upwards of 12″ and in plenty of windswept areas we were riding knee- to thigh-deep fresh.
Lots of midwest action in this full length spring edit from the Flanel Lifestyles crew, you’ll recognize Nubs Nob, Hawk Island, and other spots in the mix
I closed out the season yesterday at Hawk Island Snow Park, and barring some sort of miracle, so did they. It was not particularly pretty, the snow was mostly brown, and the laps were short, but I didn’t care: I was snowboarding a mere hour from my house in metro-Detroit, on April 21st.
To share in the excitement, everyone is invited to a party this Saturday, April 20 at Eastern Market. This is an all ages event, beginning at 9pm and lasting until 2:30am.
Will the Midwest be skiing and riding in to May this year? Probably not, but there’s a chance!
