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.

The yearly snowfall is about average at this ski area. The wonderful snow here gets incredibly deep, 17 feet per season, and that is one of the greatest highlights of this ski mountain. Porcupine Mountain is an average size ski mountain having
    a relatively high altitude difference if compared to other mid west ski areas. Porcupine Mountain has a rather humble selection of trails and quite few lifts. There are 4 good ski lifts here, and they are exciting to get a ride with.
The nearest ski area in possession of a higher elevation difference is 84 miles away. There arenít any hotels close by, but if you're ok to journey a small length then no problem, but if you donít have reservations, you may well end up snoozing in your vehicle. The winter in Michigan is so beautiful for skiing and snowboarding. This ski area has 100 acres of skiable territory, and all of it makes for tremendous skiing. This ski mountain has an average share of  
challenging ski slopes and an average percentage of beginner and intermediate trails. Getting a little nice exercise and just being on the trails for a while attract ski people from near and far.

A lot of skiers from Merrill like to ski here. Some people prefer skiing and some snowboarding, either way, this area has many ski resorts. Skiing and snowboarding here in Michigan is loads of fun every day of the snow season.
