From unleashing your inner child and sledding down a snowy hill to hitting the slopes for skiing and snowboarding at one of the state's 40+ ski areas, winter in Michigan has something for every age at any skill level. 

For an unforgettable experience set in a winter wonderland, look no further than exploring Michigan's wooded backcountry along snow-blanketed trails. With thousands of miles of groomed snowmobile trails, hundreds of miles of fat tire biking trails and picturesque snowshoeing and cross country skiing paths, there's adventure around every snowy corner. You can even try your mushing skills by dog sledding across the pristine, wintery wilderness. 

If the ice is calling, more than 11,000 frozen lakes provide outstanding ice fishing locations for you to experience a time-honored tradition. Or you can harness-up and try ice climbing one of the state's majestic icefalls, which constantly rank among the best spots in the country. To warm up, there are plenty of attractionsbrewerieswineries and other indoor adventures to explore no matter the weather.
