Mt. Holly, located North of Detroit, enjoyed their earliest opening ever when they fired up the lifts on Nov. 12th. Warmer weather forced them to close but as soon as cold temperatures returned so did the snow. Mt. Holly is almost completely open and with enough depth to set courses, Pam Deibel told her anxious NASTAR racers to suit up and get ready to race.
Mt. Holly will offer NASTAR racing again this weekend at 1pm. If you are in the Detroit area, stop by, sign up, drop in and record your first NASTAR results of the season.
If you are interested in joining an adult race league, Mt. Holly has a great program for you. The Monday night league is a seven week series that welcomes all ability levels. Put together a team of 3-6 racers or sign up as an individual and they will put you on a team. Race leagues are a great opportunity to meet new ski buddies. And, there is an apre's ski race party after each race so that you can get to know everyone involved.
With the early opening Mt. Holly's race programs are getting primed and ski clubs are coming out to enjoy the snow. Mt. Holly has seven chairlifts including Southeastern Michigan's only high-speed detachable quad. The Bavarian style lodge is a comfortable place to enjoy lunch or to warm up next to one of their fireplaces.
