The snow just won’t let up!

We went to Searchmont Resort in Canada 2 weekends ago. It was their winter carnival weekend and lift tickets were $20. I have been to Searchmont several times in Middle School and High School, but this was my first time since then. Not a lot has changed!

I do love that resort. Small lift lines, rustic resort atmosphere, cheaper foods and tickets, and ungroomed tree runs. They didn’t have a lot of fresh snow that day, but we made some good turns on the corduroy. Nic and our friends Megan and Jeremiah joined us. It is only a 4 hour drive from Marquette, so a nice short getaway.

We brought our Coleman grill to cook out at the resort. We had a feast and everyone was jealous, even the stray dogs.

They had a lot of events at Searchmont that weekend, including a cardboard sled race and a caricature artist. We had a great time in the sun, even though it was -10 degrees.

I swear this winter will never end. We keep getting dumped on. Nic and I went for a night hike last week. It was 32 degrees, no wind, and snowing 2 inches an hour. Big, fat, fluffy flakes. The trees were covered with white. It was gorgeous.

To continue on our winter adventures, we went up to Copper Harbor last weekend with friends and stayed at a cabin right in town (population 30 town….). Man, do they have snow!

We did a lot of relaxing, reading, cooking. But we also went out and enjoyed the sunshine and warmer temps. I don’t remember the last time I skied with a t-shirt on, but it was glorious. We skied across the bay in Copper Harbor, to the little island and explored the ice formations. The dogs were running around on Lake Superior like mad men.

I also took the dogs out skiing at Mt. Bohemia on their ungroomed xc-trails, while Nic and Jeremiah went and did some downhill runs.

I swear, by the time the weekend is over, I need another weekend to recoup and relax!!!
