The staff at Detroit Mountain Recreation Area began hosting a monthly gathering in December, for female entrepreneurs in the lakes area. Since then, the Women Take the Mountain event has evolved into a once-a-month opportunity for women to relax, socialize and try out some activities like yoga, crafts, wine and beer tasting and more.
The Saturday, July 2 concert at Detroit Mountain Recreation Area included music by headliner Jake Owen as well as openers John Morgan and George Birge and a gathering of four area food trucks to cater to the crowd.
Another winter at Detroit Mountain Recreation Area has come to a close. The mountain's final event of the season was held this past Saturday, March 26 — the 8th annual Pond Skim brought out more than six dozen skiers and snowboarders to test their skills at skimming across a 75-foot man-made pond at the bottom of the slope.
