Big Powderhorn Mountain

  I used to live right by Big Powderhorn Mountain and we would go there very weekend of the season back in the old days. Says Jean.

This ski hill has a decent set of trails and a decent pick of different ski lifts. Big Powderhorn Mountain obtains an average amount of snow each ski season. Having a grand total of 33 trails to ski on; it's a good mixture. The amazing 17 feet of yearly snowfall is plenty for truly great coverage. A 600 foot elevation difference
    is of course not that much, but all the other nice qualities of Big Powderhorn Mountain make up for it. You'll run into scores of skiers from Merrill here. This is a fuller-scale than average ski area in possession of plenty of vertical
feet when compared to other mid west ski resorts. There's 250 acres of ski terrain, and it's all in glorious shape. Please refer to the ski run map of Big Powderhorn Mountain on this page for information. This ski mountain has a much lower than average fraction of advanced and expert ski runs and a much higher than average share of beginner and intermediate trails. The skiing and the snowboarding in Michigan is loads of fun the whole season. Big Powderhorn Mountain  
is a good ski area for everyone with loads of blue and green slopes for novices. The 10 ski lifts here are cool to catch a ride with. This ski area has a good assortment of slopes; it won’t leave anyone bored. The snow blanketed hills of the Gogebic Range is a vista worth seeing. Some people prefer skiing and some snowboarding, either way, around here, you'll come upon lots of perfect spots. There are good comfy hotels here, and if you make reservations ahead of going, you're all set. Some exercise and just hanging out with your skiing friends are perfect reasons to come. The winter months in Michigan is the most wonderful time of the year for skiing and snowboarding. The Gogebic Range in winter is a splendid skiing and snowboarding destination.
