Located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, Black Jack Ski Resort makes up for what it lacks in vertical feet with enthusiasm, debauchery, and snowmobile trails. Black Jack makes every weekend in March another excuse to party, but our favorite is Pirate Weekend. On March 22 and 23, the entire resort gets transformed into a rum guzzling, peg leg racing, treasure hunting, good time. If you've never partied with UPPers (Upper Peninsula People), they're some of the friendliest folks you'll ever meet. As long as you bring an open attitude, a hunter orange vest, and a six pack of Old Style Beer, you'll be just fine.
