Indianhead takes home the 2013 OnTheSnow Visitors' Choice Award for the Best Family Resort in the Midwest. Overlooking the Ottawa National Forest, an area known for its natural beauty and wildlife, Indianhead is a ski and summer resort in Michigan's western Upper Peninsula. The 230 acres of terrain are served by nine lifts and tows and snowmaking covers 95-percent of the ski area. The 30 runs offer something for all levels: five green, 10 blue and 15 black. One trail, Voyagers' Highway, is over 40 acres in area, larger than many Midwest ski areas. Grab a burger at the Base Place and a cold one at the Red Dog Saloon located in the Indianhead Valley, at the bottom of the mountain.
SKIING FOR THE KIDS:
Indianhead Mountain Kinder Country is located in the Summit Center, so the kids are always nearby, and packages are sold by the half or full day with or without ski lessons.
OFF-HILL ACTIVITIES FOR MOM & DAD:
The Health & Recreation Club is open every day till 9 p.m. Take a refreshing dip in the indoor pool. Soak the day away in the huge jacuzzi tub or get a relaxing massage. Enjoy a game of racquetball or hit the weights in the Health & Racquet Club. One evening, get a babysitter and head to Dudley's Bar for live music on peak weekends.
FAMILY FUN OFF THE SLOPES:
After the lifts close, there is still plenty to do at Indianhead. Check out the Family Fun Center and enjoy bonfires and guided moonlight snowshoeing through the scenic Northwoods.
