ThSuds & Snow 2011 - Timber Ridge Resort, Traverse Citye Suds and Snow Festival is a very unique event that growing every year. It takes place in Traverse City at Timberidge campground. The thing that makes this event so unique is the fact that it takes place on the grounds of Timberidge outside. There are various breweries and restaurants set up along with live music and a DJ. There are also various fire pits to act as warming stations.

When you have experienced everything at the main area, you can hike a trail through the woods to two other stations featuring a couple more breweries and some more music. There are two ways to maneuver the trails, you can either snow shoe or hike. I have never tried the snow shoes but I see a lot of people using them and it looks like a lot of work!

Now that I have given you a rundown on this event you can see why we were very excited to go this year. We went for the first time last year and we had a blast! Thanks to our good friends Derek and Sara for introducing us to this event. It just wasn’t the same without you guys!

TheSuds & Snow 2011 - Timber Ridge Resort, Traverse City first thing we noticed was that it was much bigger this year. There were a few things that we were looking forward to that we had last year and couldn’t wait to have again. These things were the tacos, the macaroni and cheese, and Short's beer!

It was cold and windy so the beer stayed cold but unfortunately the food was usually cold too. In my opinion it is a small price to pay to experience this event. For the most part, this event was fairly uneventful. We had a fantastic time walking through the woods, drinking beer and enjoying the great people. If you are tired of the normal festival scene I strongly suggest you check out this event next year. It is unlike any other out there!
