The more we use the backcountry route (especially snowshoers), the better it packs, and the more fun it is to ride. As we get more snow, regular grooming will be added to this route.

Please note this trail is intended for fatbikes only (3-1/2-inch or larger tires). Also, if your fatbike is making ruts deeper than the skiers on the wide trails, come back another time.

Diwali Night 2014 Final Poster A2

14. Celebrate Diwali Night Saturday with Indian Food and Entertainment

Diwali Night, the Indian festival of lights, has become a tradition far from its Indian roots—at Michigan Tech. This Saturday, Dec. 6, is Diwali Night at Tech, hosted by the Indian Students Association (ISA).

Dinner, served from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Memorial Union Commons, will include Hara Bhara Kabab—a vegetable patty stuffed with spinach, potatoes and green peas; Chicken Mughlai—a cashew curry chicken; Paneer Kadai—a vegetarian entree of cottage cheese in tomato-based curry; pita bread; Kashmiri Pulav—Basmati rice cooked in Indian spices and dried fruits; and Vermicelli Kheer—a dessert of flavored vermicelli pudding with milk and sugar.

After dinner, there will be a performance at 7:30 p.m. at the Rozsa Center, on the theme “The Wonder Years,” focusing on college life with friends. The Indian Students Association band will play Indian music. Drama and dance will include Indian classical Bharatnatyam, from southern India; folk dances including Bhangra or Punjabi from North India, and Lavani, which is Maharashtrian folk dancing from the West of India, and the Western hip-hop.

There are various legends about the origin of Diwali. Some believe it to be the celebration of the marriage of Lakshmi with Lord Vishnu. In Bengal, the festival is dedicated to the worship of Kali, the dark goddess of strength. Ganesha, the elephant-headed god who is the symbol of auspiciousness and wisdom is also worshipped in most Hindu homes during Diwali. The festival also commemorates the return of Rama, along with Sita and Lakshman, from his 14-year exile and the vanquishing of the demon-king Ravana.

Tickets include dinner and the performance. The cost is $15 for the general public and $8 for ISA members.

Tickets for the event are available at the following:

5. 41 North Film Festival

The 41 North Film Festival (formerly Northern Lights Film Festival) celebrates its 10th anniversary with a name change and an outstanding slate of recent award-winning films and special guests. It will be held Oct. 23-26 in the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts. The festival is free. Kicking off the festival this year will be director Mark Levinson and his documentary Particle Fever, which follows six scientists involved in the launch of the Large Hadron Collider—the biggest and most expensive experiment in the history of the planet. The film, screened Thursday evening, provides an unprecedented window into this major scientific breakthrough as it happened. Edited by Academy Award–winner Walter Murch, the film celebrates human discovery and raises important questions about the limits of human knowledge. An interesting contrast to Particle Fever is The Circle, a perspective on the Large Hadron Collider from above ground. Director Bram Conjaerts delves into the experiences of the people who live above the LHC along its 27- kilometer path and how they perceive living above this massive project and its lofty goals.

Also on tap is Meet the Patels, a project that started as a family vacation video and turned into the story of actor/director Ravi Patel and his relationship with the woman of his dream and his parents. His father, in fact, is a Tech alumnus, and father and son will participate in a question-and- answer session following the screening.

Additional screenings include The Overnighters and Boyhood on Saturday, and Alive Inside and Born to Fly: Elizabeth Streb vs. Gravity on Sunday. Friday features Coherence and a collection of student Academy Award winners in addition to Meet the Patels.

This year’s festival is sponsored by the Department of Humanities, Visual and Performing Arts, the College of Sciences and Arts, the Office of Institutional Equity, and the Visiting Women & Minority Lecturer/Scholar Series (VWMLS) which is funded by a grant to the Office of Institutional Equity from the State of Michigan’s King-Chavez-Parks Initiative.
