Gotta give some love to our midwestern powder hounds and shout out a lake effect event happening today that will bring big snowfall with drifting and blowing snow to Mount Bohemia.
Don’t look now but the upper peninsula as well as other parts of the midwest are off to pretty decent start. With continued snowfall, it’s looking like a white Christmas on the Upper Peninsula’s home of extreme skiing. Look for accumulations to exceed forecasted snow totals. Lake effect sure helps.
Forcasted Snowfall –
- Mt Bohemia – 10-12″
