LOCALS ONLY - Batman of the Slopes

"I'M NOT WEARING HOCKEY PADS."

– Batman, The Dark Knight

Well neither is Batman of the Slopes, but he is however wearing skis.


For our first Locals Only Rider Profile we are highlighting someone whom many of you probably recognize. He skis all over Michigan in his bat suit, equipped with batarangs, a utility belt and a black helmet with bat ears. You can typically find him cruising down runs waving to kids or people on the chairlift, or in the lift lines where he is making some kids day. Batman of the Slopes is a genuine character who is out on the hill trying to spread fun and make smiles.

Check out Batman’s answers to our Rider Questions below!




WHATS YOUR NAME AND WHERE DO YOU LIVE IN MICHIGAN?

I’m Batman of the Slopes and I live in Gotham City Michigan.

HOMETOWN RESORT? Caberfae Peaks.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE SKI RESORT IN MICHIGAN? IN THE WORLD?

My favorite ski resort in Michigan is wherever the snow is groomed and the slopes are open.

I have a very limited experience with ski outside of Michigan, but with all of the places I’ve skied my favorite ski resort in the world would be Winter Park, Colorado.

WHATS SOMETHING WEIRD ABOUT YOU?

I put more miles on the Batmobile during ski season than the average person put on their car all year long.

WHAT EQUIPMENT ARE YOU CURRENTLY USING? BATMAN EQUIPMENT?

I use Technica boots and Elan Ripsticks.

I carry batarangs, helmet stickers, a batski lock and a multi-tool.


IS THERE ANY CRIME THAT YOU FIGHT ON THE HILLS? ANY ENEMYS?

As Batman of the Slopes I am always vigilant. I help out ski patrol by keeping my eyes open for rule breakers, litter on the hill and assist with injured skiers. For enemies you could say that negativity is my Joker and I combat it with a positive attitude and putting smiles on faces.


WHATS YOUR FAVORITE MICHIGAN BEER?

I don’t have a favorite beer because I am not a fan of beer.

WHATS YOUR BEST SKI/SNOWBOARD MEMORY?

The first day I went skiing after an eleven year hiatus.

WHATS YOURS FAVORITE THING ABOUT MICHIGAN?

Winter is my favorite thing about Michigan.

WHATS YOUR FAVORITE SKI/SNOWBOARD MOVIE OF ALL TIME?

The Blizzard of AAHHH’s

IF YOU WERE STUCK ON A DESERT ISLAND AND COULD ONLY EAT PBJ AND ONE SNACK, WHAT WOULD BE YOUR BREAD, PEANUT BUTTER, JELLY AND SNACK OF CHOICE? BE SPECIFIC IF YOU CAN.

My PBJ would consist of white bread any brand, Peter Pan crunchy peanut butter and Smuckers seedless raspberry jelly. For my snack it would have to be the original Waffle Cabin Waffle that you can get at Crystal Mountain and Boyne Mountain.

Thanks Batman!

Next time you’re on the slopes and see Batman, make sure to give him a wave or ask to see his batarangs.

Cheers,

Jacques
