Explore Michigan’s Trailhead

The Western U.P. offers some of the finest outdoor recreation and adventure opportunities in the country. During the winter months with Mother Nature as our snow machine, the Western U.P. offers skiers an abundance of fresh powder and perfectly groomed terrain. Four incredible resorts offer over 100 trails and some of the finest downhill trails anywhere in the Midwest.

Each Western U.P. snowmobiling adventure is unique and exciting, as there are over 2000 miles of groomed trails, unplowed logging roads, secluded National Forest trails throughout our area.

Frozen waterfalls, pristine snow-covered forests, Lake Superiors ever-changing shore, and beauty so raw it will leave you breathless. Grab your skies, strap into your snowshoes, bundle up and hit the trails. One of North America’s great outdoor playgrounds, there is nothing quite as exhilarating as winter in the Western U.P.

Whatever trail you choose to follow, your outdoor adventure starts at Michigan’s Trailhead.
