Mt. Bohemia Mardi Gras

Last weekend was Mardi Gras at Mt. Bohemia in the Keweenaw Peninsula. Want to know why that is awesome? Girls ski/ride for free that day!

It was a beautiful bluebird day. The wind was low and the temps were finally above zero! We drove up from Marquette for the day and met a bunch of friends. The Keweenaw is definitely not lacking snow this winter. They were already up to a total of 275″!!!!

Since it was Mardi Gras, everyone was in full party mode. There was a bead contest and the girl with the most beads won $1000. There were also a lot of people dressed up in costume.

We had a tailgate party in the parking lot and cooked brats and made drinks while we soaked up the sun.

Mount Bohemia is an ungroomed, backcountry, lift access hill. It is best when there is fresh snow. We didn’t have any new snow that day, so it was very tracked out. But it was still lots of fun. My legs are still sore from riding moguls all day. On a snowboard, that is hard!

The “resort” of Bohemia consists of a series of yurts (canvas circular tents). They have yurts that you can stay in, a yurt lodge, store and bar with a restaurant. It is very unique.

After a long day of snowboarding (and awful helmet hair!), we met up with some friends in Hancock for dinner and drinks.

When we got home, our dogs and cat were very happy to see us. They had a long day of relaxing….So I took the dogs for a snow bike ride on Sunday and then spent the rest of the day lounging around the house and crocheting.
