For Your Entertainment, this Yooper Teen Dives Into 3 Feet of Fresh Manistique, Michigan Snow
The winter storm that plowed over the Upper Peninsula in mid-February 2021 was a doozy, even by UP standards. Take a look at how this family from Manistique looked to make light of the buttloads of fresh powder they were dusted with.
This video was shared to the Yoopers rule da world Eh! Facebook group. That's three feet of snow at 14 degrees and our brave jumper is wearing nothing more than a t-shirt and shorts.
Fun or crazy? I guess that depends on your perspective on a Yooper winter. No surprise most of the comments were decidedly in the 'fun' category:
That looked fun! Brr...
Lol Looks fun !! We trolls like to do that also when we get enough snow . We have about 20 in in my backyard right now. My son took a dive 2 days ago, but he had snow pants. I see some parts of the UP got 50 in.
Yep, done and done ✔️ in Wisconsin too. Done with the below zero for over a week, tho. Give me snow every few days not the cold crap
Yoopers are the beat people on earth!
WOW!!! Now that ia a YOOPER!!!
The Yooper plunge!
To give you just an idea of how much snow fell on Manistique. Here's a drive around some backroads in what looks like an ORV.
Manistique, on the north shore of Lake Michigan, was the big winner in this storm's snowfall sweepstakes, with a reported 32 inches of fresh snow.
