Midwest Trips

Every year, Hoofers SnS hosts a couple of trips to the most popular slopes in the Midwest. These trips include locations such as Devil's Head in Merrimac, Wisconsin, as well as locations in Michigan's Upper Peninsula such as Mount Bohemia and the Indianhead/Blackjack mountains at Big Snow Resort. This is an incredible opportunity to experience some of the best skiing and snowboarding of your life, as well as to meet lots of new people and have tons of fun at the same time!

Mount Bohemia

Mount Bohemia - Michigan's Upper Peninsula


Friday, March 2 - Sunday, March 4 (This is during Mount Bohemia's Mardi Gras celebration!)

The bus will leave from the Chazen Museum at around 12:00 p.m. on Friday, March 2, and will return around 10:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 4.


This is a weekend getaway to one of the snowiest places in the Midwest. Pack your bags for a great weekend of the best skiing and snowboarding at a great price - not to mention it will be an excellent Mardi Gras celebration!

We will be skiing on both Saturday and Sunday and will cap the group at around 50 people, with lodging right off the mountain in 5 yurts (think of a cross between a teepee and a cabin). The yurts include a place to sleep, showers, and refrigerated space. Bring your own bath towels, sleeping bags, and pillows. Breakfast and dinner are included for each day we stay (Friday - Sunday), but you will have to bring food for lunches or plan on buying food at the restaurant on the mountain.
