Celebrate winter in the Wolverine State. A visit into Michigan calls for stay in the Detroit area – escape the teeth-chattering chill at the North American International Auto Show, with displays of highly anticipated concept cars, or head into Ford Field, home to the Detroit Lions. Then rip up the slopes in northern Michigan at Boyne Mountain – home to 111 trails for skiers and snowboarders alike; there really is a wealth of outdoor activity in Michigan.
Head further north into the Upper Peninsula and shred Big Powderhorn Mountain's 17 feet of average annual snow – perfect for the novice, or the advanced. Just outside of Grand Rapids, try Bittersweet Ski Area, featuring 20 different runs, and warm yourself up with a flavorful brew at the Winter Beer Festival at Fifth Third Ballpark in Grand Rapids. Any visit to Grand Rapids should also yield a tour of the Gerald R. Ford Museum.
For some snowshoeing, you'll find plenty of choice trails in northern Michigan. Near Traverse City, be sure to explore Sand Lakes Quiet Area Trails, or Camp Hayo-Went-Ha Trails, nearly 17 miles of pristine snowshoe trails. In Detroit, winter for sports fans means Redwings and Pistons games. Visit Joe Louis Arena, home of the Redwings, or check out the Palace of Auburn Hills for an exciting Pistons basketball game. Sounds like you're in for some adventure this winter in Michigan.
