Great trails, tons of snow, friendly staff. Missing one thing!

Indianhead would surely get five stars if it only had one or more high speed quads! The chairs are very slow and outdated but this is my only issue with this otherwise wonderful ski resort in the UP! The resort is set where the resort is at the top of the hill and trails lead down to any number of... More

Indianhead is simply the best skiing in Big Snow Country. The magic carpet provides a comfortable, private place to learn, and the long, well-groomed green, blue and black runs provide variety and challenge. Now merged with Blackjack, with a single lift tic that works for both resorts and a free shuttle in between, I'd recommend you spend your ski time... More

I've tried all of the ski areas in the Upper Penninsula and I prefer to ski at Indianhead. The runs suit me perfectly as an advanced/intermediate telemark skier. The Chippewa Trailside condos are very nice too.

I went to Indianhead 22 years ago as part of Ski Down Cancer. Nothing has changed...Nothing. The bar at the base of the hill is exactly the same but the food is worse. $28.50 for 4 cold hot dogs and beverages seemed excessive given the lack of up dating and generally poor service everywhere. Extensive deferred maintenance everywhere we looked.... More

Don't get me wrong, Indianhead has a lot to offer, they just need to update things. We recently went skiing for 3 days. We had done Indianhead before so we thought we'd try Big Powderhorn first to compare. We had a good time at both, but decided that BP had more comfortable (beautiful lodge, nice staff). We would have skied... More

Our family group of 18 had a great day! Got there at 8:30 and that seemed just early enough to beat the rush on a Sunday. Our little ones had a great 1/2 day at the "Kinderschule" which is a daycare/ski school, the lady running it was extremely nice and comforting to the preschool-kindergarten age kids (even borrowing a scarf...

Haven't been here in ages but wanted to mention that it was one of our families best skiing areas back in the late 60's! great area for vacationing too. If you like snow it's great! And a lot of good fishing, camp sites and even a few old mines in the area to visit in the summer months!

Very disappointed in our last trip to Indianhead. Trails where not groomed well and staff very unfriendly. The lady that runs the ski school never smiles and is unfriendly. To top it off we went on the day they had the survival of the fittest contest. Poor advertisement only 5 participants. They where giving away a ski pass you'd think... More

We had a magical time at Boule de Neige at Powderhorn Village...blessed with the foot of snow that arrived with us on Dec. 20th, 2012. A little disappointed only 3 runs were opened but we paid 1/2 the lift ticket price. Next day went to Indian Head to ski, they had 13 runs opened. Overall nice place to stay. If... More

Indianhead provides the best skiing option for the Michigan and Wisconsin area with long, well groomed runs and the best vertical drop in the area. We skied the last Monday in January. The snow and weather were picture perfect. The rental equipment is in fair condition, but their staff was excellent - willing to help in any way they could... More
