Nub's Nob

“Overall wow.... I know this doesn't happen everyday but Sunday morning I was on the 5th chair up with 8" of freshly fallen POW. It was MLK weekend and the lines were minimal, I was skiing solo and I believe I only had to share a ride on the lift 3 times. Great layout and lifts will get you almost anywhere you want to go. Crowd and staff were extremely friendly and helpful.   There are a...” --mctillsr

Marquette Mountain

Marquette Mountain

“There are bigger hills, larger resorts, places with more lifts... but none that I've skied in OH, MI, CO, and WI has been as convenient, comfortable, and easy as Marquette Mountain.  Great value too.       Lots of pluses -- Per my wife, cleanest bathrooms of any ski hill she's seen.  Bathrooms with hot water.  Even early season w/ half the mountain open its...” --Sweerek

Mount Bohemia

Mount Bohemia

“If you like to ski natural snow in a natural setting, Bohemia is for you. If you're looking for anything else - and I do mean anything - you won't find it here. No snowmaking, no grooming, two slow lifts (usually one is shut down or getting repaired - the place only really needs one lift and the bus anyway), no nightlife, no food, no park, no crowds, no ski school, no NASTAR, no base lodge, no...” --Jer

Caberfae Peaks

Caberfae Peaks

“ I list Caberfae as my home area even though it is 2 1/2 hours from me and there are closer ski areas.  I have been skiing it for over 20 years and never get tired of it.  It has some nice beginner runs that go through forested areas, but the north and south peaks are the jewel of the resort.  The runs off of the peaks are somewhat challenging and somewhat long ( for midwestern...” --Bullcan

Shanty Creek

Shanty Creek

“Schuss Mountain is a top ten Michigan ski area.  The five main lifts have a good combination of all ski run types with good run length.  Lifts are fixed a little slow but have short lines.  There are taller and bigger ski areas in Michigan but Schuss isn’t that far off.  ” --nathanvg

Swiss Valley

Swiss Valley

“I am bias to Swiss Valley, I grew up on the place (newborn) and have seen it grow and change over the years.   It is one of the best places for families, beginners, or a quick fix for skiing.  They offer a variety of package deals for skiers and have a wonderful program for children.   I have taken my own children there and we all have enjoyed ourselves. ...” --Becca

Indianhead Mountain

Indianhead Mountain

“ I was at Indianhead Mountain this past weekend, the skiing was great, people were great, accommodations were dated but not bad. Yes it is a drive from the Minneapolis area. The food was from the 70's, nothing healthy except salad. ” --Freestyle1975

Boyne Highlands Resort

Boyne Highlands Resort

“ I live fairly close to both Nubs Nob (10 Minutes) and Boyne Highlands (15 Minutes). Every time I skied, I went to Boyne. All of my friends went there and I was content with it. The hills aren't demanding, but were steep enough to let you pick up speed and make you feel cool about yourself. Great for beginners/transitioning intermediates. The problem with Boyne is their snow quality. I have a...” --MIdownhill

Porcupine Mountains

Porcupine Mountains

“The Porkies is where I first fell in love with skiing.  At the time it was run as a state park, so it had a "park" vibe rather than a "resort" vibe - no advertising, no piped-in music, management decision were made for "quality of experience" reasons instead of marketing/profit motive. Unfortunately, that system wasn't economically viable, so it's now being run by the folks who run Mt Bohemia. ...” --Walt

Big Powderhorn Mountain

Big Powderhorn Mountain

“Greetings from the UP of Michigan, officially known as the Upper Peninsula.   I have been skiing for about 25 years and have been a Big Powderhorn Mountain customer for approximately the past 8 seasons.  It's not the tallest, does not have the most extreme terrain, and lacks in night life during the week, but it more than makes up for it in the quality/amount of seasonal snow and...” --Shenanigans2800
