210 feet vertical

Full review

One of Traverse City's two ski hills--and the only one with chairlifts--it's a fun little place to make a few turns. The vertical is only 210 feet, though it still has a nice view of TC and Grand Traverse Bay at the top. It is enjoyable when you go in without expectations of grandeur (if you want a bigger hill, there are several within two hours' drive; if you want mountains, why are you living in Michigan?). It is an old-school hill that makes me nostalgic for my younger days; as I'm so reminded by all the kids who frequent the place. The chairlifts may seem a bit rickety but it just adds to the hill's character.
