Hi all,

I am jetting off to Michigan in a few weeks time to stay with some family who are in Rochester.

While over there, we were thinking about spending some time skiing and i am just trying to find some local knowledge before we go.

So, has anyone got any recommendations as to where's best to go ? (we were thinking about Boyne Mountain but i was wondering if there's anything closer to detroit as we will be traveling home every night).

Is it really worth the longer drive ?.

Cheers and thanks for any help,
Tris

I don't think you will want to commute back and forth to Boyne without staying at least a night. From Rochester it is about a 4 hour drive one way.

You can either try Mt. Holly or Alpine Valley.
Each of them are maybe a 40 minute drive from Rochester.
They are decent runs. They don't have the elevation and run length of Boyne. But if your just spending the day there, I think that would be your best bet.

Hi Tris, I lived in (Royal)Leamington Spa for a year or so.
Loved the pub scene!
Anyway, I'm about 20 min. from Rochester. If you're looking for a "proper" pint, shoot me an e-mail.
We have snow now and it's been cold enough for the snow making machines so that should be alright.
Have a safe trip,
Mike
