Michigan

Midwesterners, take notice! You don't need to fly across the country to find great skiing. The ski resorts of Michigan offer a winter land of opportunities for downhill and cross-country skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling, ice skating, and sledding. Michigan is already a bargain with lodging deals to complete ski vacation package discounts.

What Makes Michigan Unique

Michigan has an abundance of unexpected delights in store for skiers and riders alike. The ski slopes of Michigan include a multitude of terrain parks, half pipes, drops, steeps, groomed cruiser runs, and even tree skiing. For the adventurous there is even an expert only ski area called Mount Bohemia.

Michigan is a diverse state, covering a lot of ground. The ski areas of Michigan are spread throughout the state with concentrations in the western Upper Peninsula, just south and east of Traverse City, around Detroit in the southeast, and a several more in the southwest. The state shares more borders with the great lakes than any other state in the lower 48—amounting to outstanding lake-effect snowfall throughout the winter ski season. The ski areas' annual snowfall varies greatly, but with great snowmaking capabilities, most will have good snow coverage the entire season. Some Michigan ski resorts in the Upper Peninsula will receive between 200 and 300 inches of snow fall annually! That is more than a handful of powder days.

Major Resorts

Alpine Valley, Boyne Mountain, Boyne Highlands, Big Powderhorn Mountain, Blackjack, Indian Head, and Mount Bohemia are all privately owned resorts. There are even state owned and operated areas like Porcupine Mountain State Park (the Porkies). Browse the ski areas and read what each as to offer. All in all, Michigan is home to over 50 ski resorts, but we've concentrated on a select few and brought you the best deals and discounts for your favorite winter activities.
