Yes, it’s a polar vortex called winter in Michigan. Severe winter storms, car accidents, changed plans and powder over park sums up this past weekend… and the season so far at Nubs Nob.

Midwest RomeSDS rep. Rich Whinnie and Great Lakes Insurgent Andrew Carroll were on their way to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula last Friday until they were stopped at a closed Mackinac Bridge. Being no stranger to the Northern Michigan area the boys quickly changed plans and headed down to Nubs for a two day, love bird special, getaway at Nubs Nob.  Lucky for these two the hill got blasted Friday and well into the early hours of Saturday.  Come Saturday morning it was nothing but steep, deep, and sunshine. The day turned into a crew of seven dudes searching for the best powder runs possible.  The crew spent the day ripping tree lines, glades, snow pillows, natural side hits, and even the hike access glades. Waist deep slashes were had and high fives were shared throughout the day. One of the best days of riding all season by far. Up at Nubs it has been powder over park more often than ever. It seems like every week there is fresh snowfall and wind packing all the glades to the brim with snow; probably because we’ve received over 100 inches of snowfall this season. A lot of kids nowadays get stuck in the park and forget about how awesome cruising tree lines with friends can be so its good to get back to just riding, ripping turns and blowing clouds of snow.


GET OUT AND FIND THAT FRESH STUFF!

SHRED ‘TIL DEAD!

RIP IT DON’T STRIP IT!
