Photo gallery: Say goodbye to winter in the Porcupine Mountains
With warmer weather on the way, we’re taking time to reflect on the wonderful winter we just experienced here. Snow-covered trails welcome skiers, snowshoers, and snowmobilers, and the scenery just can’t be beat—here are a few photos so you can see what you’ve been missing.
Enjoy the snowy solitude of the Porcupine Mountains and Ontonagon County in winter, when crowds are smaller and the woods are draped in snow.
The Porcupine Mountains and Ontonagon County are home to more than 350 miles of groomed snowmobile trails that traverse Michigan’s western Upper Peninsula.
The Porcupine Mountains Ski Area is a popular stop for skiers and snowboarders and offers spectacular views of Lake Superior from the top of the hill.
The Porcupine Mountains Ski Area also offers some great opportunities for cross-country skiing.
In winter, the only way to reach Lake of the Clouds—and its incredible vistas—is via snowmobile.
The Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park offers lantern-lit snowshoe hikes throughout the winter.
Backcountry snowshoeing is another popular activity in the winter.
The Porcupine Mountains and Ontonagon County average nearly 200 inches of snow a year, so there are always plenty of winter activities to enjoy.
The waterfalls of the Porcupine Mountains and Ontonagon County—like Gorge Falls, seen here—look a lot different in winter.
