Porcupine Mountain

  Nice little ski hill to take the kids to on a day off in the winter. It's a very small ski area, just for locals and kids. Says Bob.

Porcupine Mountain has a very beautiful view of Lake Superior. Says Sally.

This ski resort has an average fraction of black and red slopes and an average ratio of beginner and intermediate trails. A 641 foot elevation difference is unsurprisingly not that much, but Porcupine Mountain compensates for it with other
    things. The 15 ski trails at this ski area are totally enjoyable. This is a conventional size ski mountain featuring a great vertical drop when compared to other mid west ski hills. Porcupine Mountain has the biggest elevation difference
for 84 miles. This ski resort has 100 acres of skiable land, and all of it makes for magnificent skiing. You may have to settle for a hotel a bit far away from the base zone if you want to stay for a few days, but you'd better reserve before heading out because these places to stay fill up fast. This ski hill gets blanketed by an average amount of snow every season. All of the 4 different ski lifts will get you up the slope efficiently. The incredible annual snowfall  
of 17 feet is one of the reasons this is such a great ski hill. The winter in Michigan is truly a good time of year for snowboarding or skiing. Heaps of skiers journey up here from Merrill, specially on the weekends. Porcupine Mountain has a fairly modest collection of trails and a fairly modest sum of ski lifts. Snowboarding and skiing in this region is so much fun the whole winter season. A nice workout and getting out of the house for a while will have you returning. Some people prefer skiing and some snowboarding, either way, there are a lot of nice places for that in the neighborhood.
