Indianhead Mountain
Description:

Indianhead Mountain Resort and Conference Center is a ski and summer resort in Michigan's western Upper Peninsula. Indianhead offers 195 acres of skiable terrain served by nine lifts and tows. One trail, Voyagers' Highway, is over 40 acres in area, larger than many entire ski resorts in the Midwest. Their acreage is 95% served by man-made snow so Indianhead enjoys the longest season in Big Snow Country, opening earlier and staying open later in the spring.

Pros: Great snow and the people are fantastic.

Cons: The food needs a serious update.

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.

Pros: Not crowded, friendly staff , no lift lines, good snow

Cons: slow lifts, one has cold bare metal seats

 

Feels similar in size to Spirit Mountain in Duluth, although more spread out, runs feel longer, but like Spirit Mtn the vertical feet they claim is exaggerated. We measured all possible runs with our ski app which confirmed our sense that vertical was more like 500’ than 635’, our app showed it at 465’ skiable vertical. We liked that the runs were not crowded, no long lift lines and very few snow boarders.  The people working at the chalet and bar were very friendly and helpful.  The lifts however where dated, slow with little or no padding, one of which was snow and ice covered bare metal. We did not appreciate getting our butts wet right off.

Pros: Great terrain by midwest standards, good snow

Cons: Too far away

Indianhead is one of the mainstays of the "Big Snow Country" resorts.  Lot's of natural snow.

It's an upside-down resort (lodge at the top, you ski down and take the lift back up - your day ends with a lift ride) which is a bit unusual for the midwest.

Perhaps not as beginner friendly as the resorts in "Boyne Country", there's still some stuff for the newbies. Intermediates and everyone except true experts will find terrain to their liking here.

Bottom line: Great skiing by midwestern standards. I'd go there alot if if wasn't so far away.
