Located in a state park in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Porcupine Mountains Ski Area is home to a large amount of runs of different difficulties to challenge. There’s room for everything here, from snowboarding to skiing to even cross-country skiing. It brings together both challenges and affordable pricing.
Porcupine Ski Area has 42 different runs, most of them being advanced and intermediate runs. There’s only two beginner’s runs, with one of them being the bunny slope hill. This is definitely a mountain more meant for those who are advanced or experts, because they would get the most use out of this mountain.
There are no lessons, lodging, or night skiing here, since it’s a small place and has no lights, but it’s open until five PM every day. Lodging is off-site and is easily found, since there are many surrounding hotels and motels in the area. The area is also very scenic, as it is located in the middle of a state park. There’s also three lifts to get skiers and snowboarders to the top of the mountain.
Tickets are affordable, with an all-day adult pass coming in at $39, which is cheaper than most places. They also offer a season pass at an affordable price of $175.
