Mount Bohemia, Michigan’s northernmost ski and snowboard area, has a reputation for being bad. And, when we say b-a-a-a-a-d. we mean one of the baddest, if not, THE baddest, in the region.

With what’s billed as the Midwest’s highest vertical at 900 feet, loads of tree and cliff- and boulder-jumping action, a welcome sign that warns, “no beginners allowed,” and a 100 percent ungroomed  extreme experience on its 85 runs, all but three of which rated black or double-black, that’s b-a-a-d. And, it wants to show you how bad by offering a special season pass sale that this year will be another first: online only, and one day only.

Sign up on Dec. 1, and get your pass for just $99.  Sign up three new season pass holders at the same time and get your own pass free.

When you visit, book one of the slope-side yurts that have been on site for several seasons, or try one of Bohemia's two new trailside cabins to ski or board in and out to the lifts.

Cabin accommodations also include breakfast and dinner this season. Alternatively, head down the road to nearby Houghton/Hancock at the base of the Keweenaw for more choices or 14 miles further north for more at the top of Michigan at Copper Harbor on the Lake Superior shore.

Besides the cabins, Bohemia has also added two new heavily treed glade runs in its Haunted Valley area on the mountain’s northwest side.  Check Bohemia’s website frequently for other deals, and its opening day.
