This Upper Peninsula Ski Resort Named Best In America
Attention those powder hounds and those who crave Après ski. Winter is here, and everybody will agree that Michigan offers many top-notch places to hit the slopes around the state where you can take your pick. With phenomenal destinations with incredible runs, it's no wonder one of our gems has been named the best in the country.
USA Today just released its list of the 'Best Ski Resorts in America' as part of their 10Best list.
"Ski areas all across the U.S. and Canada are prepped and ready for their winter season. To help you plan the perfect ski vacation, we asked a panel of experts to nominate their top picks for ski resorts. Then, readers voted for their favorites to determine the winners. These 10 ski resorts took top honors because they offer mountains with serious snowfall, varied terrain, lots of lift access, and so much more", they wrote.
Taking the title of the Best Ski Resort in America on USA Today's 10Best list is the crown jewel of the Upper Peninsula, Mount Bohemia. Located in Lac La Belle, this incredible resort is known for being more for advanced skiers only, with its steep slopes, several exposed rock formations, and often ungroomed terrain. USA Today said;
"Powder skiing in the Midwest? That's the promise from Mount Bohemia, where lake effect snow in Michigan's Upper Peninsula averages 273 inches a season and tends toward the light, fluffy stuff that skiers further west adore. In addition to having the longest runs and most vertical drop of any ski area in the Midwest, Mount Bohemia features open runs, glades, and chutes — all with natural conditions since the resort doesn't groom any of its trails."
Mount Bohemia beat out other incredible resorts in Lake Tahoe, Vail, and Sun Valley just to name a few. You can see the full top 10 list here.
So, whether you're an avid skier, a snowboarding pro, or just someone who loves to soak in the snowy magic of winter, come experience the thrill and beauty that earned this resort the title of Best Ski Resort in America.
