Travelled from Australia to see family in the U.P and they directed me to Indianhead. I found all the staff extremely friendly and helpful. Good runs and ski hill in general. Excellent amenities and some of the events they hold make for a great day to be had by all. Will definitely be back next season.

I love the runs at Indianhead and the snow and how they groom it. I wish they had a highspeed chairlift.

Indianhead is hands down the best ski resort in the UP. Long runs, deep powder, great base bar, and friendly helpful workers.

Also have to appreciate the main chalet at the top of the mountain: First run is a run, not a chairlift ride.

I live in Frisco, CO home to some of the best skiing in North America. Every year we come to our roots and ski in Northern WI and the UP of Michiganat many wonderful hills that hold fond memories. One the stands out from the others is Indianhead Ski Resort.

Although ther didn't a lot of natural snow (sound familiar) Indianhead is 100 o/o open with excellent grooming and conditions. The staff is wonderful, the locals welcome you and it is guaranteed to be a wonderful adventure.

If you have kids, you will love the varied retain and excellent snow making and grooming even more.

I hadn't been back in 40 years and now the 5th year in a row. The last 4 with a lot of natural snow were awesome, I was really blown away this year with the excellent conditions. Although I will be glad to return home to Colorado, if you can't get there come to Indianhead.

For midwest ski areas, this is a nice option (provided you don't stay at the resort itself). The runs were spacious and varied, snow was good, and the lifts were fine. The kids' ski school is nothing to write home about, but for a family ski experience in the U.P., this place is nice.
