Big Snow Resort: Why settle for one mountain when you can play on two?

             The Midwest’s best snow experience now has twice the impact. Two popular ski and boarding areas in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula are united under one brand: Big Snow Resort. Two mountains, Indianhead and Blackjack, have combined services and amenities to offer the most complete skiing and boarding experience for families just getting introduced to the sport to the advanced skiers and boarders.

            The two mountains offer 410 skiable acres with 56 trails, 15 lifts and activities for the entire family. Located near Lake Superior, the mountains average 17-feet of fresh snowfall annually making the destination one of the most popular for those seeking a “real snow” experience. For families with a range of skiing abilities, the resort boasts ice skating, snowmobile, snowshoe trails, cross country skiing plus family friendly activities.

            “We’ve always been family focused,” says Barry Bolich, General Manager at Big Snow Resort. “In the last few years we’ve organized our facilities and added activities that allow the whole family to enjoy winter and everything it has to offer.”

            Recent upgrades on the mountains focus on the outdoor experiences and activities for visitors seeking the soul-stirring natural winter experience of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula with the amenities of a first-class resort.

  • The Big Snow Experience includes 638 vertical feet of runs, three snowboarding terrain parks, chair lifts, rope tows, magic carpets, and runs for the first-time skier/boarder to the most advanced.
  • Skiing, boarding and snowshoeing lessons are available for all. So, no matter your proficiency, Big Snow Resort can help you enjoy your experience even more. From free beginner’s lessons, to family lessons, to ski racing school, we have it all. If you’ve stayed with us before, you have to come and see what’s new.
  • The main lodge rooms are all updated and many of the cozy mountain top chalets have been updated making for a perfect family stay, couples get-away, or group ski trips. Plus, free shuttle service between the two mountains makes easy to enjoy everything Big Snow Resort has to offer.
  • Expanded winter activities give options for everyone. If you’re laid back we have art classes for kids and adults, a family board game area, Saturday night bonfires, even our Yeti Snow Fort designed just for kids. For lively activities, try the tubing slide, ice skating, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, a bungee jump trampoline, ice skating, or enjoy listening to one of the live bands that play nearly every weekend.
