Get outdoors and enjoy the fine Michigan ski
in the Winter Wonderland State! Boyne Mountain, Boyne Highlands,
Nubs Nob, and Crystal Mountain are just a few of the quality ski resorts
All have modern snow making equipment should the
weather not cooperate.
28° F. is the
"magic number" for snowmaking. When the temperatures drop below this
mark, you can be sure Michigan ski areas are making snow. 10
inches of natural snow, when packed, usually adds only one inch of
snow to the ski slope’s base while 10 inches of man-made snow adds
seven inches of base. Man-made snow is more dense and durable.
Four to five times as much snow can be made when temperatures are in
the low 20°s than when it is 28°. Humidity is a factor as
well. The lower the humidity, the better for making snow. If you add
the temperature plus the humidity, that sum should equal less than
100 for favorable snowmaking weather.
is what many people will be doing this
year. Get out to the Michigan ski resorts and enjoy the same.
