WHY: Bohemia used to be so hard up— isolated as it was in the real-man country of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula—that women skied for free. Gender equality has arrived, but this challenging hill still ranks up there when it comes to wild snow (a decent 273 inches a year) and burly terrain.
WHERE: Hit the Apex and Horseshoe Chutes (chutes in the Midwest? You betcha!).
WHAT: The sausage fest rages in the North Pole bar, where you can sip a local Keewenaw micro on tap, eat crepes (mais oui, dude), and watch some goddamn football.
