It is a pretty small resort or that might just be because we went in late March and there were less runs open because it was melting. The chalet is pretty nice and it is good that they have the shuttle running to and from blackjack. The driver Rosie was really friendly!

I enjoyed the beautiful views and the hospitality at this resort. Everyone from the desk clerks to the rental staff were very friendly and helpful. The mountain had nice variety. The lodging was clean. My only suggestions are as follow: The bbq staff at the lodge at the bottom of the hill did not wear glloves when serving food. The... More

Indianhead is my favorite ski hill in this area - but the one thing that I'm always disappointed in is how slow the lifts are. The Sky Bar is always a hit, too.

Have always skied at Blackjack & enjoyed the runs & staff. But with the new ski partnership between Blackjack/ Indianhead, we decided to ski Indianhead this year. Overall, the snow quality and length of runs compared to other UP ski facilities outstanding. They seem to offer a wide range of runs for all levels of skiers. Voyagers Highway run is... More

My favorite in the UP/Midwest. Friendly staff, continued improvements on the facility itself (new updated baths at the Base Bar (Red Dog). Grooming operators are magicians.

Went to Indianhead Mtn for a day of skiing. What a waste. Not only were the lift tickets overpriced, we only had half a hill to ski on! When we asked about access to some of the others runs we were told that of course they were open, all we had to do was WALK to them, and then ski... More

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 The chairs are very slow and outdated but this is my only issue with this otherwise wonderful ski resort in the UP!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.
