About the Ski Resort

Nestled in a wooded setting just 15 minutes from Lake Superior (a natural "snowmaking machine"), Big Powderhorn Mountain is a picture-perfect winter vacation resort.

Abundant snowfall, trails groomed to perfection, unforgettable mountain top views around every turn and friendly staff are just a few reasons to ski here.

Three peaks drop more than 622 feet with 26 trails served by nine double chairs.

With more than 300 chalets, condos and rooms to choose from, Big Powderhorn offers the finest and widest selection of lodging in Big Snow Country.

Big Powderhorn was established around the philosophy of family, featuring the services and amenities that appeal to every age group.

From the south, take I-90 or I-94 west to Route 51 north to Ironwood, then turn right onto Route 2.
