The ski and snowboard season in Michigan is off to a good start as most resorts officially opened their lifts last weekend, with a few more coming online this week. The cold, dry temps we have received over the past week are helping with resort snowmaking efforts, allowing them to continuously build their base and increase the amount of open terrain.
With the holidays fast approaching, this weekend marks the first big weekend for events and deals that Michigan skiers and snowboarders will not want to miss.
For those looking for an excuse to ditch work and make some tracks, check out these upcoming deals.
