Top 10 Reasons We Ski in the Upper Midwest!

Here are the top ten reasons we ski in the Upper Midwest. Some may call them rationalizations, you be the judge!

#10

We can ski 40 runs or so a day, in Colorado you can only ski 20 or so (tops). Twice the runs here!

#9

After a hard day of skiing you can sit out on a lake and relax by ice fishing. I don’t recall too much ice fishing happening in Vail.

#8

Where else can you ski on so much man-made snow?

#7

The lift rides are not so long.

#6

One word: Oxygen

#5

Duh! We live here!

#4

In the early season can one watch the Packer game in a Colorado lodge? Unless they play the Donkey’s I don’t think so.

#3

One can only afford one expensive vacation every other year and this year it is to a warm and sunny place.

#2

No secret service agents ever get in our way (I never fall it was their fault)!

#1

Rahvles, Miller, et al. Do they ski on powder? Nope, they ski on hard snow, just like we have here in the Upper Midwest!

Good Stuff!
