Experience Winter in Michigan
Michigan's signature season is here.
From unleasing your inner child and sledding down a snowy hill, to hitting the slopes skiing, snowboarding or tubing at one of the state's 49 ski areas, there's something for every age at any skill level.
For a different experience, look no further than exploring Michigan's wooded backcountry. With thousands of miles of groomed snowmobile trails, hundreds of miles of fat tire biking trails and picturesque snowshoeing paths, there's excitement around every snowy corner. You can even try your mushing skills by dog sledding across the pristine wintery wilderness.
And if the ice is calling, Michigan's more than 11,000 frozen lakes provide outstanding ice fishing locations for you to drill a hole, drop a line and experience this time-honored tradition. Or you can harness-up and try ice climbing one of the state's majestic icefalls, which constantly rank as some of the best spots in the country.
