Skiers are kicking it at ABR




Every year we midwesterners are lucky to have a natural snow machine in Lake Superior. Lake effect. A mythical beast but a real one at that. In past week significant snow has fallen in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and the ABR ski trails has hsitorically taken advantage of it. So while the rest of the midwest can expect at least a month of waiting to ski, the ABR trails could potentially have already kick started the season. For those who venture forth to Ironwood to get a few KM in, they can expect a festival atmosphere of a myriad of skiers all stoked to get snow under their feet. Me, I generally wait, I hate getting so excited to ski, only to return home to my bike or running.....

Hey Hansi!
Been there done that last Thursday! Great to be sliding on snow.
