I used to ski some of the hills in the UP during college and then graduated to Snowmass, Jackson Hole, Grand Targhee and other slopes in the Rockies. But I do remember going to watch the ski jumping at Pine Mt a couple of times, amazed, and after one of the events had completed, I walked up the hill to the crown of the slope, and seeing how steep the landing was, I slid down, standing, no skies, just Sorel boots. The pitch was so steep and so slick that we could just squat down and slide down. So much fun. Great to know they still jump there.
