Ski Areas > US Midwest > Bittersweet, Michigan




  I haven't been there since December 19, 2009. But I still remember it as the best place I've ever been and I've been to Swiss Valley and a few places in Ohio. I cant wait to come back! I love it there!!!!! Says Levi.

Bittersweet has enormous snow-making capacity and is consistently the first to open in SW Michigan. Their vertical is only 350 ft, but that's about 100 more than any other resort in SW Michigan. As noted, their lift system is impressive, particularly
    the high speed detachable quad, but lines can get a little long on late December weekends. Their terrain park has a good variety of boxes, jumps, etc. Very friendly people. Says Steve.

Yea you guys rock i love the snow Says
Phil Macrackin.

Ahh yes, Bittersweet Ski Area... Michigan skiing at it's very best. The drops in these part of the country are not that impressive but I think Bittersweet makes the most of it. I do recommend this ski area. Says George Wilson.

In my oppinion Bittersweet ski area of Michigan is quite a good place for a bit of winter fun. I must say the lift system is quite impressive for a resort this size and everything is well maintained. It's
quite a pleasure to come here to ski. Says Paul.

This ski resort has 100 acres of skiing territory, and it's all covered by ice cold snow. Bittersweet gets blanketed by snowfall close to the local average every winter. Bittersweet has a fairly humble selection of slopes and enough different ski lifts to serve them all. The yearly snowfall of 8 feet keeps the trails well covered during the ski season. There are 6 lifts here, and they are in delightful shape. Bittersweet is a conventional size ski area in possession of a roughly average vertical drop when you compare it to other ski hills in the region. You have to go 91 miles to get to a ski hill with a more sizeable height difference. This ski hill has 17 slopes, and they are delightful to ski on. The 350 foot elevation difference is naturally not that much to brag about, but Bittersweet makes up for it with other things. Michigan gets exceptionally charming in the winter; it is so charming for snowboarding or skiing. This ski resort has a much lower than average share of demanding runs and a much higher than average fraction of easy slopes. Skiing and snowboarding in this part of the country is a good thing to do during the winter season. Loads of skiers voyage up here from Allegan, in particular on the weekends. There's a ski trail map of Bittersweet on this net page for your reference. This is a family friendly ski area with loads of easy runs. Whether you're skiing or snowboarding, there are scores of wonderful spots for that nearby.
