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.
