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. ... Full Review

This place has the best snow I have ever been on and has a great variety of slopes. It was perfect for a skier of my skill level (intermediate). The only downside is that the lifts are pretty slow and there isn't many of them. Also I didn't have time to explore their terrain park although I didn't see much of one. ... Full Review

Indianhead is where I learned to ski, and my family would do a trip there every year. It has lots of wide-open groomed runs. It has a lot of terrain for the beginner and intermediate skier, but a real lack of challenging runs for the advanced and expert skier. ... Full Review

We brought our family to Indianhead for the first time in December 2015. We had so many fantastic memories on the hill. My wife and children were first time skiers. They had a fantastic time at Ski School and were able to learn with a very patient instructor. Everyone by the days end could ski down all the green runs on their first day. We had so many hours on the hill that weekend with smiling faces. It isn't often enough we get to see our family all enjoying the same activity and have so much excitement in a winter wonderland. My son couldn't get enough and talked his Boy Scout Troop into going up for the weekend in January of 2017. The hospitality of the resort and staff were phenomenal. The adults and scouts alike voted the Indianhead trip as their all-time best outing!!! We can't wait to go back this New Years and ski in 2017!... Full Review

In Oct this year a friend bought me 4 tickets as a Christmas present. Due to weather issues this season (moving snow) my first chance to go was this past week. It was an unpleasant surprise when there was no record of the tickets or any customer service as to trying to remedy the situation. Even though I presented a receipt that was not enough and if it weren't for a friend that had ALSO purchased four tickets I would have had to purchase from IH again. NO PHONE CALLS. NO EMAIL. TERRIBLE CUST SERVICE. With three other ski areas a stones throw away I will re evaluate the situation for next season. I may be one customer but will be damned sure to tell everyone I know...

My Boy Scout troop has been coming to Ironwood for at least 30 years. They've skied the other mountains but have exclusively give to Indianhead for the majority of our trips. The price is great. Long runs with more vertical feet than anywhere else in Wisconsin. Pretty good food in the area. ... Full Review

Checked out Indianhead for the first time after Xmas. Tons of snow and the trails were groomed to perfection. Not too crowded. Stay in a chalet on the main trail. Nice place, skied right out the door. Went looking for some nightlife and it was slow. Bar was open but not too many people. Other than that we had a fun time. Hope to come back again soon....

What a great time we had when our family group of 18 went! The little ones went to a 1/2 day of "Kinderschule" where it's a "daycare/ski school" then went skiing with the parents in the afternoon so the whole family could be together. The lodge was nice with an old-fashion type atmosphere w/big fireplace. Good runs, great snow, no lines, overall good day skiing! Then we went to Hurley (10 min away) and ate at the Iron Nugget…awesome food/beer, atmosphere, people, and prices.... Full Review
