OPEN INVITATION - HURON MOUNTAINS BACKCOUNTRY POWDER
« on: February 15, 2016, 04:59:10 pm »
FYI: Jeff Thompson is coordinating the event (see below my paragraph)

I'm camping and BC skiing Fri 19th thru Wed.  I would like to BC ski and camp Porcupine Mtns and 20 miles north of the Porkies... the 'Trap Hills' (Victoria).  I know the Western UP and McCormick in summer but unfamiliar in winter where parking is allowed, BC ski-in with pulk to camp without permit.  State Park restricts Porkies unless you know the lay of the land.  I find no one knows the Trap Hills and I 'think' the Hurons off CR510 is open to ski-in and camp.  Know where the 'good spots' are or how it all works in these areas?
Doug Tally... here's Jeff's invite!

Marquette / Huron Mountains - Sat, Feb 20 - 8:30AM Meet NMU.  High country in the Huron Mountains for turns in the fresh powder!
