We did not go to the ski area, but the park with the scenic lookout. You can drive your car to the top, hop out and look over the city, the lake and the surrounding forests. Very lovely and easy to do.

The place is not fancy and is geared for people who love to ski. Its not for those that want dining and night life. But if you like good snow conditions and skiing its the best Michigan has to offer.

It used to be one of the best hills in the Midwest. The management has gone down hill, pun intended. They treat their customers like garbage. Not worth the drive or the money!

This is a nice, small ski area. The "mountain" is more like a big hill, but it's the best in the U.P. (maybe 600' vertical?). It's well taken care of, and easy to get to. It's in use a LOT. We've driven past at 6:30...More

A local that we ran into on the beach recommended that we go here. We are so glad he did. You simply drive up to the lookouts, the views are terrific!

I've been to the hill many times, but was happy to see this trip that they've made some renovations to the lodge. New bathrooms are now on the main level. This was a great addition! Nice to see investment in this property.
