Porcupine Mountains Ski Area
SKIING - The Porcupine Mountains has 11 miles of slopes covering 100 acres, over a 320-acre area. The daily ticket prices are the lowest of any comparable ski area in the Midwest.
SLOPS - There are 7 intermediate trails, 5 challenging expert trails, and 3 novice trails. The vertical drop is 641 feet, the highest in Michigan or Wisconsin! One novice trail is 5,800 feet long.
SKI TRAILS - Over 25 miles (42 kilometers) of groomed cross-country trails surround the main hill. Four main and several smaller trails combine to form the trail system. The trails are power-tilled and groomed daily by the Friends of the Porkies. Your pass includes use of the chair lifts, giving skiers quick access to the heart of the Nordic trail system, as well as the entire Alpine ski area. Along these trails there are three warming huts open to all and three rustic 8-bunk cabins that are available for rent throughout the winter.
SNOWBOARDING - Snowboarders are always welcome here.
A triple chair and T-bar lift serve the Eastern Summit. The Western Summit is served by a double chair, and a handle tow serves the bunny slope. Lift capacity is 3,600 skiers per hour.
