A few words on the Snow at Mount Bohemia

Mt. Bohemia has no detail snow data, but we accept the published average of 273 inches snowfall. The unique lake effect microclimate of the Keweenaw Peninsula is corroborated by local county records. Powder skiing in the trees is impressive with the low water content lake effect snow.

Accumulation and Preservation

Mt. Bohemia's ungroomed terrain and natural forest generally need most of December's snowfall to accumulate a good base. Cold temperatures and frequent refresher storms preserve the snow well midwinter and Mt. Bohemia gets less winter rain than most Midwest ski areas. Primary exposures are south and west, so the snowpack can collapse quickly with spring sun and sharp reduction in lake effect snowfall.
