Destinations / North America

There are 37 ski areas in the state of Michigan. The Great Lakes region is No. 2 in the nation when it comes to places to shred some snow and, luckily, much of it can be done on a budget.


Nub’s Nob Ski Area

Nub’s Nob Ski Area in Harbor Springs offers a lot of bang for your buck. The resort houses just less than 19 kilometers of slopes to explore and 11 lifts. The highest slope starts at 400 meters, but there are smaller ones for beginners in the 200–250 range.


Boyne Mountain Resort

Boyne Falls is home to Boyne Mountain Resort, though the elevation is lacking at only 372 meters. However, there’s an impressive 60 runs for skiing and snowboarding and 10 lifts to get you around. At less than $100 a person, it’s a steal.


Mulligan’s Hollow Ski Bowl

Those looking for a super cheap place to ski should check out Mulligan’s Hollow Ski Bowl. While not technically a ski resort, it’s the most affordable option in the state for good snow. For just $20 you get access to three kilometers of slopes with elevations up to 233 meters.


Porcupine Mountain

Finally, Porcupine Mountain offers an abundance of outdoor adventure for skiers and hikers alike. With more than nine kilometers of trails for just $45 a day, you can spend your time skiing or exploring the wilderness of the mountain on the back of a snowmobile or snowshoes.
