Ski Patrol Comments

It looks like snowflakes are in the forecast today and a return to winter weather. I’m all for it. It is January after all! On days following several days of warmth and sunshine it is usually a good bet to find the best skiing on the North facing slopes. So most of the terrain off the Pali chair, Black Mountain Express and Lenawee lift are the places to go. Groomers on the Lower Mountain and Lenawee for example. Explore a little and you will find what you seek. The day is complete without a visit to the 6th Alley bar for food and drink, so get some!
