The Porkies - Porcupine Mountains

It’s almost ski season at the Porkies!

Be prepared for some changes and new faces at the ski hill this season…after a 10-year agreement with Gogebic Community College, the Michigan DNR will be operating the hill again.

The Porkies will still offer fall color rides, family and individual season ski passes, Snowburst, Telefest and hopefully even more events in the future.

The goal in the beginning of the contract with GCC was to get the Porkies a destination hill again (like it was in the 70’s, 80’s & 90’s) and with great success, they accomplished that goal.

With that said, we are excited about the return of the hill to our hands, and we look forward to serving our community and visitors at our Winter Sports Complex. Bring on ski season!

Thank you from all the staff at the Porkies and we hope to see you soon!

If they accomplished that goal it made very little sense to push them out.

The Porkies - Porcupine Mountains

It's that time of year again! Fall Chairlift Rides start THIS weekend!!!

We have some color, not a whole lot along the lakeshore, but always guaranteed great views.

Another Reminder - Expect long wait times if you are heading to Lake of the Clouds...be patient with our staff.
