Snowshoeing by Big Powderhorn Mountain

Thursday, March 20th, was a beautiful day to go snowshoeing. Went 10 miles north of the Piper Haus to Black River Harbor – Lake Superior and went snowshoeing on the lake, it was beautiful, the sun came out in the afternoon and made it even nicer.

Snowmobile Conditions are Still Excellent in the UP

Snowmobile season is expected to close March 31st, so get your group together to enjoy the great trails before the season ends. The Piper Haus and Snowed Inn can accommodate groups from 2 to 20 people per unit each with full kitchens, living rooms with fireplaces and all lines supplied so it’s the perfect choice for your snowmobile vacation.

With plenty of snow and longer daylight hours it makes for great riding conditions. Groomers are out during the night hours and with cooler temps at night the trails are in really great condition. Riders in the area are raving about the trails and reports coming back from DNR trail inspections on the trails are all coming back with “impeccably groomed”!  With the new snow today and more expected for tomorrow riding should continue to be good.

Ski the Upper Peninsula!!!

Welcome to Big Snow Country where the ski season and snowmobile season have begun.  Do you have your skis and boards all waxed and ready to go?  Big Powderhorn Mountain, Blackjack and Indianhead Mountain are open and ready for you to enjoy their hills.  With 60 inches of snow already this season and with more in the forecast along with the snow guns going the hills are in good shape.  Blackjack ski resort and Indianhead Mountain will be 100% open this weekend!

Interested in cross county skiing?  ABR Nordic Trails and Wolverine Cross Country Ski trails in Ironwood are open and groomed and in excellent condition.

Snowmobiliers, the Michigan Snowmobile tail report and the Wisconsin Snowmobile trail report both say snowmobiling in this area is good.  With 5 inches of snow in the last few days and with the cold weather at night the swamps have frozen over and the trails look good.  The lakes in most places still aren’t the best, so it’s best to stay off of the ice for now.

After a fun filled day of Skiing/Boarding or Snowmobiling it’s nice to go back and relax in the hot tub by the fire.

Come stay with us at the Piper Haus and Snowed Inn where families and friends play together and stay together.
