Mount Bohemia, located in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula has the highest vertical, most snow, and the most expert terrain in the Midwest. What makes Mount Bohemia so special? It has Western Mountain terrain right here in the Midwest – hundreds of acres of tree skiing, chutes, and cliff drops scattered all over the mountain. In fact, Mount Bohemia is rated #1 for powder skiing east of the Rockies by Powder Magazine and called “one of the top ten undiscovered ski resorts in the world” by MSN.com!

Here are 6 reasons to have a winter adventure at Mount Bohemia this season:

Over 500 acres of terrain:  Imagine skiing all sides of the mountain with more expert terrain than virtually any ski resort east of the Rockies.

    Mt Bohemia is the real deal. Authentic back country skiing experience, unpretentious and lean, true grit character, and plenty of characters. My kids declared 2 years ago ‘no more groomed runs for us dad!’ and won’t go anywhere else in the Midwest.

    Been here many times now…..7 I think……and lived to tell the tale each time….that’s no small statement as we get older. If you are at least a confident intermediate downhiller, highly recommended adventuring. No rest for the wicked brave enough for Bohemia!

    Just came back from my first trip last weekend. we got 19″ of fresh snow in 24 hours. i’ve never seen snow like that anywhere. unbelievable.

    I’ve been going to Bohemia and doing the 1 day season pass sale for roughly a decade and it’s paid off every year. You really can’t beat it. Plus, you can really explore some back country terrain as they’ve got shuttle buses that go around if you don’t come down right to the lifts.

    Great vibe. Awesome conditions even without a ton of pow. Lift Ops were very cool and Rick and Elaine work the magic at the bar and complimentary breakfasts! Aprés Ski in the bar and Yurtside was memorable.

  • Devon Lynn

    We are thinking about going there. I wouldn’t consider myself an advanced snowboarder. Are there any runs for intermediate boarders?

    You are surpassing the West in snowfall totals for the 2014 / 15 season. Yes I have made the pilgrimage to the Holy place for mid-west skiers. Bohemia always surpasses peoples expectations, even the people who’ve heard / read about its terrain.
    A Bohemia “NO BEGINNERS ALLOWED” warning is hanging on my ski wall.
    Still can’t believe a ski area like Bohemia exists in the midwest!

    Just finished two days of true “spring skiing” at Bohemia. Conditions were extra firm in the AM and turned to spring powder in the PM. Tough spring skiing as always for a guy who doesn’t see much terrain but I can report Awesome hill, Awesome time, Awesome people !!! Skiied with patrollers John and Tony who kept me out of trouble and showed me around. Not just for me, saw them repeat this with countless guests, especially those with younger skiers. Great price on room with breakfast/dinner meal plan. Bonus was lobster and mushroom ravioli !!! Not much room to cook or do dishes but they make it up with quality ingredients/items !! 15 minute search on google let me find the special order homemade pasta from a place in PA.

    Had a great time over spring break. Met and skied with cool people: Darryl, Linda, Jimmy, Eva, David, Jerry, Michael. But where was Johnny Spirit? Plenty of other cool people to hang with. Had two days of ice, then spring corn snow and finally powder for two days and made tracks every run. Maybe two dozen people on the mountain. Does it get better? Thanks Lonnie and everybody who makes this place unique.
