Thousands of ski enthusiasts are waiting for that first major snowfall that signifies Michigan’s slopes are ready for a great run. With fresh snow and the wonders of the snow machines, skiers can count on good bases for exhilarating winter fun. Since last season ski resorts and winter recreation areas have been tuning up with new options for guests. With a combined total of 42 ski areas, boasting over 200 chairlifts, 840 runs, more than 40 terrain parks and hundreds of kilometers of groomed cross country trails, there is something for everyone.
