In Like a Lamb…

Here we are in the month of March.

But winter isn’t over!

March is a great time of year to visit Copper Harbor.

Why?

  • We get frosty sunrises!

  • Much of the snow is packed and crusted over, so you can walk on top of it!
  • Until we get another blizzard…

  • The town is overall quieter than in January and February
  • The snowmobile trails are groomed until April 1st
  • The ski/bike trails are still groomed
  • Crust riding on the shore on your snow bike is amazing
  • Mount Bohemia is still open
  • Some days are sunny and bright with no bugs!!!
  • Many nights are starry and clear
  • Until we get another blizzard…
  • On the warm days, you can find a stick and carve out little streams in the slush for the puddles to run into the ground
  • You can feel a little bit better about not shoveling right away because, well, it will melt soon
  • The once dry roads leave prints in the packed down snow until the wind blows it off

We have already been teased quite a bit with abundant sunshine.  It seems like spring could be right around the corner.  And then we get a blizzard two days later, so we can make fresh tracks again.

It’s really all okay.  It’s only March.

We’re in the Keweenaw.  Winter is not over!

PSA!  Don’t miss The Brockway Mountain Challenge on March 21st!  It’s a snow bike race over Brockway Mountain Drive, a cookout/party and live music with Frank an’ da Beans at The Pines Resort!
