    That's incredible.

    I can't even wrap my mind around that much snow.. So much for thinking we get "snow" in Michigan.. We've got nothing on you.

    well, it was a record breaking year and the previous years were considered "drought" years so it was hard for me to wrap my mind around it while it was happening! I almost died of exhaustion from all of the snow removal I ended up having to do... but we made bank :) By the way, I consider myself a Michigander (Dearborn, MI) :)

    Do driveways still go for 199.00 for the season with unlimited plowing?

    Driveways are not done with plows. I lived on Kingsbury Grade in Stateline for 4 winters and I only really remember 1 pickup with a plow. He had chains on all 4 tires. Drives around me were done with loaders and skids. The roads were swept with large plows and followed by blowers. What I miss the most is the lack of equipment rust. Little to no salt used. That pick had to be a remote area. On the way to Kirkwood would be my guess. Makes me sad thinking about it.

    I plow along the highway doing detail work but most jobs are done with blowers or loaders now. No salt is used at all anymore, just sand in extreme cases. That picture is on highway 89 heading to Squaw Valley - definitely not remote! It was a crazy crazy winter last year! Sounds like you need to make a trip back for a visit :)

    89 is remote. Except for the few houses and resorts there is nothing out there. It would close with the rest of 89 if there wasn't the resorts. Thats still a good amount of snow for the area though. I left cause I got tired of the lack quality employment opportunities. Too much competition for low wage employment. Lots of fun though. Enjoy!

    I wish I had pics of our friends cabin last year. It's a 3 story affair, (I know, I know, not my idea of a "Cabin", but he's got a little $$$) the only thing sticking out of the snow was the top of the chimney.

    It was July before you could get there without a snowcat.
