Mount Bohemia named one of country’s best ski hills

It’s an honor that never becomes old hat. Mount Bohemia was named by USA Today’s 10Best ranking system as one of the top ski resorts in the country. The backwoods downhill experience is certainly exceptional for the Upper Midwest, but President Lonie Glieberman says the recognition is helping to diversify the visitors to the hill beyond Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.

We’ve been actually growing our Upstate New York audience for the last couple of years. We’re starting to reach into Ohio. We’ve got Columbus, Ohio…Cleveland becoming part of our database, our thing. We have some people fly in from Georgia every year. We’re starting to see a strong influence of niche skiers looking for a really unique place to go.

Mount Bohemia has rapidly expanded over the past 10 years or so. Originally opened in 2000, at one time it was known for its rustic nature. Now it boasts new runs on the eastern face, snowshoeing trails totalling over 11 miles in distance, and a Nordic Spa. Glieberman says the concept is hugely popular in Europe and Canada, but not many American resorts have one.

It’s been in Europe for a while, but it’s kind of new to the US. It really formed the place not just into a ski resort, but a lively place to enjoy yourself in the winter months.

Mount Bohemia hopes to open by the end of the month, with the spa this weekend. Glieberman is targeting the week between Christmas and New Year’s but that is weather dependent.

Once again, Mount Bohemia has been recognized by USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards as one of the nation’s top downhill ski destinations. A panel of experts partnered with 10Best editors to pick the initial nominees, and the top 10 winners were determined by popular vote. This marks the fourth straight year Mount Bohemia has made the Top 5 of the popular Today’s 10Best list.

“It’s such an honor to have been chosen as the fourth best ski resort in North America,” expressed Mount Bohemia’s President Lonie Glieberman. “We believe that what makes Mount Bohemia so special is our commitment to creating an atmosphere unlike anyplace else. It is important for us to stay true to our roots; the Bohemia lifestyle is all about fun, adventure, and wilderness. We strive to bring this to our customers everyday with ungroomed runs, fresh lake effect powder, and an après ski scene with a Nordic spa pool party twist.”

Mount Bohemia, best known as a destination for extreme skiers and 273 inches of average annual snowfall, is the only Midwestern resort to make the top ten. Stowe Mountain Resort in Vermont was the only other resort east of the Mississippi River to make the list.

Opened in 2000, Mount Bohemia’s 620 acres features Michigan’s tallest vertical drop at 900 feet. It also has Michigan’s longest run, Ghost Trail, which is almost 2 miles long. For more information on Mount Bohemia visit www.mtbohemia.com.
