Petoskey Area

Petoskey Area

The Petoskey Area is located on Lake Michigan's Little Traverse Bay in northwest lower Michigan and is known as Michigan's favorite winter getaway. Three major ski areas offer over 160 downhill runs. A variety of other winter sports abound, as does the ski town dining and shopping ambiance you'd expect in the Rockies or New England.
Skiing At Its Best
With a combined 160+ runs, Boyne Highlands, Boyne Mountain and Nub's Nob each offer great skiing, boarding and cross-country options.
Spectacular Scenery
The beautiful scenery in the Petoskey Area  isn't just a summer and fall thing. The magic of those winter wonderlands made famous in songs is alive here.
Snowmobiling
When it's time to hit the trails, look to the Petoskey Area for excitement on 140 miles of groomed fun. Trail maps are available from the Visitors Bureau.
Zipline in Winter
The action doesn't stop on the slopes. Spend some time on a zipline for an entirely different view of winter. You don't need to be an adrenaline junky to make the most of this adventure.
Family Fun
Bring the whole gang for family time they won't soon forget. Making memories is an added bonus to snow covered hills, cozy fires, and warm hospitality.
Winter Recreation
Harbor Springs, Boyne City and Petoskey all give you the chance to glide across the ice at their winter recreation areas. Or whisk down a sledding hill laughing all the way.
A Multitude of Trails
You can visit for several days and never do the same route twice. Bring your snowshoes or xc skis or rent them when you arrive.
A Michigan Treasure
The Petoskey Area welcomes you to an unbeatable Pure Michigan winter - on the slopes or off. Enjoy a relaxing visit at a Petoskey Area winery or brewery.
