Full review

Pine Knob is a great place to get your fix in if you're not hopping on a plane or trying to drive 3+ hours. Phase 1 and Shaboom are the longest and steepest Black Diamonds in Metro Detroit. Pine Knob is only 300 ft. of vert but it has a very good Run:Chair Time Ratio so you can do 8,000-10,000 ft. of total vert in one Afternoon. The Crew goes the extra mile to get the hill covered, packed and well groomed during Marginal Temperatures. Ownership/Management do a good job of getting the season started as early as possible. This dedication better serves their Season Passholders and the general SE Michigan Day Skier than the crew at Mt. Brighton (Vail Resorts).
