Friday, Feb. 13-15 was our Marquette Mountain Trip. Great food on the way up and fun at the Irish Bar ended our travels on Friday. Arriving at Marquette Mountain on Sat. we walked into a mound of racer bodies. Some lifts were closed due to high winds. Some decided to take the day off & enjoy the entertainment. Sat. night we had fun in Marquette after a dip in the hot tub along with a wine & cheese party. Sunday we were back to normal with Nastar races & lunch on the hill. One last libation before leaving was our shot ski, impressing some college students at the mountain. Fun was had by all.
