Michigan has 38 Alpine Ski Resorts. The only state with more ski resorts is New York with 50. When thinking about Michigan ski resorts do you just think Boyne Mountain, Nubs Nob or Crystal Mountain? Let's take a look at some of the other great ski destinations in Michigan.
Blackjack Ski Resort, in the Upper Peninsula, is in the Black River Valley. Here you will find forty percent of the runs are black diamond making it nice for advanced skiers. Also in the Upper Peninsula area is Big Powderhorn Mountain Resort. Bring your skates when visiting this resort, nighttime ice skating is just one of the attractions here.
At Whitecap Mountains you have three mountains and 36 runs to choose from. Porcupine Mountains offers 11 miles of skiing with a 641 foot vertical drop.
Another excellent Michigan ski resort for advanced skiers is Mount Bohemia. They have the highest vertical drop in the midwest and some of the deepest powder also. For night skiing try Bittersweet Ski Area where the snowmaking team keep the slopes open early and late in the season. More early and late skiing is found at Ski Brule where "Snow It First, Snow It Last" is the way they do things.

Local ski resorts in Michigan would include Lake Lansing Park North and Burchfield Park if you are Lansing residents. Grand Rapids residents can head to the Cannonsburg Ski Area in Belmont. Apple Mountain Ski and Snowboard Resort is a second home for many Saginaw residents.
The lucky residents of Petosky have two very nice resorts they can call home. They can choose from Nubs Nob Ski Resort or Boyne Mountain Resort, both nice places to escape for the day.
Probably none are quite as lucky as the people that call Marquette or Munising home. They just happen to live in the same town as a ski resort with Marquette Mountain and Valley Spur being practically in their back yards.
No matter where in Michigan you live, chances are you have a ski resort you can call home. Maybe it's a place a short drive away with a great terrain park, or just a fun place to party and do some night skiing. If you are planning a trip to Michigan and would like to include some skiing, you will not be disappointed, there are many wonderful snowy mountains just waiting for you. Any of the Michigan Ski Resorts listed on this page should make your trip to Michigan enjoyable.
