20 Jan Our Staffers Winter Whereabouts!!
Assuming the snow has receded to a manageable amount, each year we open the shop and rev up the shuttle by Memorial Day weekend. Our short, make-hay-while-the-sun-shines-season, then ebbs and flows with the winds, waves & weather, black flies, holidays and special events such as the annual, Labor Day weekend Copper Harbor Trails Festival. It’s typically in mid-October, following the Keweenaw’s spectacular color season, that we get the kayaks and bikes sold off or stored away for their long winter nap, and that KAC staffers scatter and drift away in the wake of the falling leaves….
