Definitely the best in the Midwest! Has the most terrain and HIGH SPEED LIFTS! Can be a little pricey but I'll take it because the longest I had to wait in line was 2 minutes. No where else will you get that many laps. Everyone...More

We have enjoyed this park many times for hiking and picnicking with our grandchildren. Its a beautiful spot with an overlook to view the entire area. A must visit especially in thre fall.

Had a fun time riding the ski lift up the mountain to the state park for some hiking. Nice experience for those non-skiers and snowboarders to experience the lift and take in some neat sights.

We were guests for a wedding here. Loved it, beautiful and rustic. Lots of atmosphere. Full wall windows facing the ski hills. Gorgeous.

They make snow whenever possible to guarantee an optimal skiing experience. They have invested each year in creating more runs and better lifts. The price is steeper than up north in Northern Michigan...but hey.....they are another 2 1/2 hours away....are you going to ski or...More

Spring Skiing is not too bad depending if temperatures hold enough so snow doesn't melt. Trust me its no fun at all ridding on a Slurpee. It make for a very wet and unpleasant experience. But if they blow fresh snow you... More
