We saw this place in a brochure toward the end of our U.P. trip and decided to spend a couple of days there. It was great! Fishing, biking, kayaking, paddle boarding-we even went on a guided agate hun... read more »
We came to stay in the Aqua Cabin with the all-inclusive option for a week in August. Admittedly we were very fortunate with our weather. First of all, know what you are coming for and which activitie... read more »
The place is located at the bottom. Of the ski hill resort. We stayed inside of a yurt which is a permanent tent that they have on the property. They are very nice. It was the perfect temperature and you will have no problem sleeping in them. There is also a bar, and dining room close by which are also very nice.
Just a downright fantastic place. Best skiing east of the Rockies. No grooming, awesome glades and they get a ton of snow most years. This is what skiing is supposed to be.
The location is beautiful! There is so much to see nearby! My boyfriend and I stayed for a small getaway early last June. It took a little longer than expected to get there from Illinois. Be careful driving at night, it gets very dark, foggy, and there is an overabundance of deer, at least this time of year. And seriously, the fog is so bad, so just try to avoid driving at night. It is also very chilly so pack accordingly. Our cabin was okay, very private but pretty dirty, had heat though. Old food in fridge, blankets and sheets seemed used, trash leftover in bathroom, and there were tools stored in our room that were removed while we were still checked in without our knowledge, luckily we were not in the room at the time. Though, at one point one of the construction workers popped up in my window. Otherwise, the staff were very nice and accommodating. They made sure we were well fed and shared some points of interest with us as well. We loved adventuring! We went fishing, you don't need a license since it's private property. We saw a waterfall, 3 lakes, deer, bears, and wildflowers! Also, don't expect to get any cellular service! If the cabin was cleaner and construction workers didn't randomly pop up in my window, this would have been a 4 star review.
The terrain is everything it's been made out to be. While triple diamond might be an oversell, the majority of the hill is 100% equivalent to what you'd find out west, just shorter. No groomed runs and tons of fun trees. Still finding good powder 5 days after the last storm. Clientele is...interesting. I guess that should be expected for the literal middle of nowhere Midwest but no one comes for the ambiance.
This is definitely not your typical ski trip. The hostel is very simple, as are all the yurts; they have a musty BO sort out for smell, nothing is swept, let alone cleaned, the food is simple, the common lodge room is equally unclean and simple but you're not here for amenities or 5 star service. When the snow is deep, the worth of Boho shines. There's no ez way down, no blue runs to cruise. Most people just stay for a couple hours and head out. A full bell-to-bell day here can be a brutal workout. A few runs are wide open black diamond bump runs, the rest is either hardcore triple black glades with cliffs or, the majority of BoHo, is basically blue run steep but very tight, unmaintained/untrimmed glades. This is a place where most any wife wouldn't remotely consider staying but where any diehard (advanced) skier will have quite a challenge.
