Crystal Mountain, Thompsonville
Fifty-nine downhill runs keep skiers and snowboarders of all abilities busy, and with nearly half the runs lit for night skiing, the fun doesn’t need to end when the sun goes down. You’ll also find multiple terrain parks and several glades for skiers looking for a little extra adrenaline rush. Warm up afterward in a cozy hotel room or a spacious resort home atop the mountain.

Porcupine Mountains Winter Sports Complex, Ontonagon
More than 200 inches of snow blanket Michigan’s largest state park each winter, making the Porcupine Mountains a snow sports lover’s paradise. Ride one of three lifts to the top of 20 beginner, intermediate and expert downhill ski trails, or head to the park’s tree runs, where open glades wind through evergreen stands over fresh powder.

Boyne Mountain, Boyne Falls
Ski or snowboard over 415 snow-covered acres, including 60 downhill runs and four terrain parks, at one of Michigan’s largest and most popular family resorts. Tubing, snowshoeing and winter zip lining add to the snowy fun, and afterward you can warm up at Michigan’s largest indoor water park, Avalanche Bay Indoor Waterpark.

Cannonsburg Ski Area, Belmont
Ski these 21 runs northeast of Grand Rapids, rated from beginner to expert, or check out Cannonsburg’s terrain parks, considered among the best in the Midwest. Tubing hills run parallel to the ski trails, and the resort prides itself on its robust children’s ski program.
