I am not from the area and bought tickets for me and a friend for a weekend get away. The weekend we were suppose to go I ended up getting sick. They would not extend my ticket or allow for a reimbursement.

We visited in early March, during a time when the Midwest had relatively little snowfall, respectively. Indianhead Mountain makes snow too, so it's adequately packed. However, there were areas, due to the warmer weather, that had to have warning flags for the melting spots. The...More

I actually had a nice time at Indianhead, but the experience was made disappointing by the complete lack of signage on the ski runs and lifts. This isn't just a convenience thing, it is a safety issue that management needs to address. Not only are...More

It is a pretty small resort or that might just be because we went in late March and there were less runs open because it was melting. The chalet is pretty nice and it is good that they have the shuttle running to and from...More

Indianhead is my favorite ski hill in this area - but the one thing that I'm always disappointed in is how slow the lifts are. The Sky Bar is always a hit, too.

My favorite in the UP/Midwest. Friendly staff, continued improvements on the facility itself (new updated baths at the Base Bar (Red Dog). Grooming operators are magicians.
