Indianhead Mountain, the big chief of the UP's Big Snow Country, is offering some attractive lodging pricing over the holidays.  You also can save on lift tickets by purchasing them ahead online.

You can save 40 percent on a hotel room during the holidays or receive 30 percent off of one- and two-bedroom trailside, mountaintop condos.  A minimum two-night stay is required and the offer is only available by calling the number listed below.  It is not available online.  You have to mention the savings offer at that time.

However, you can save by purchasing lift tickets online ahead of your arrival.  Lift tickets online are $37, which is a $10 savings over the regular price of $47 if purchased at the ticket window.  You can save even more by purchasing lift tickets in three-day quantities; up to a $47 savings per person.  The lift tickets are valid anytime during the 2009-10 season. 

Indianhead is hosting a big Birthday Bash Saturday, Dec. 19, celebrating 50 years of hosting Midwestern skiers and riders. Christmas Day lift tickets will be $25 for the entire day. Indianhead will offer nightly tubing  5 to 7 p.m. Dec. 26 - Jan. 2 for $5 per person, and guided moonlight snowshoe hikes starting at 7 p.m.  The tour, which will last about an hour, is $7 with snowshoes and $5 if you have your own.  There might even be a mug of hot chocolate included somewhere along the hike.

The mountain offers 29 slopes and trails, terrain parks, and a halfpipe.  It boasts award-winning dining and lodging, and offers live entertainment on weekends throughout the season.
