While Winter 2008 hasn’t been good for things like car makers, investments and national economies, it has presented us with some incredible conditions for skiing and snowboarding.
USA Today noticed that Midwest skiers have all kinds of options in Michigan where we have more downhill areas – 42 – than any state except New York with 200 chairlifts, 840 runs and 40 terrain parks! Our Michigan Ski Tour series from last year runs them all down and remains a great resource for skiers and snowboarders, giving you a tour of where to cross-country or downhill ski or board.
