Did you know that no matter where you are in Michigan, you are no further than 2 ½ hours from a ski area? That’s right; Michigan has more ski areas than any other stat e except New York. We also have a program that allows all 4th and 5th grade students to ski for free! It’s called the Cold is Cool Ski & Ride Passport. Plus, for both kids and adults that don’t know how to ski, there is a special program this January called Discover Michigan Skiing that makes learning fun, easy, and affordable. More information on both programs is available here.
