I was pretty excited to come to the U.P. and try this resort. However I was disappointed. I’m sure in the day this way a great resort and this area gets a lot of natural snow. However it doesn’t appear that this resort or many others in the area have updated. All the lifts and lodges seem to be the originals. It isn’t very crowded which is nice but they also don’t open all the runs if it isn’t busy. Indianhead is relatively flat which is good for beginners or family’s. However as I mentioned they really haven’t updated the resort which means slow 1 speed lifts. That combined with the long flat runs means your on the chairlift for a long time. A lift ride to the top is about 15minutes which is a long time for the 600ft vert. I was there from open to close and didn’t feel like I had gotten enough runs in. I also disliked that all the terrain is very similar. All the runs are on the same ridge and are similar grade in steepness so you feel like you are on the same run the entire day. The main advantage of this place is that there are other resorts around so If you are staying multiple days you can hit them all. It is also relatively inexpensive and the near by areas are also inexpensive.
