"Human's were never meant to hibernate"
Carve your way down our Historic slopes at Hanson Hills. Established in 1929 as one of the first ski areas in Michigan, our (3) surface lifts access (6) runs, and challenging Terrain park. Fun for all ages and abilities.
Tubing at its finest is what you will find at Hanson Hills Recreation Area. Adjacent to our ski slopes, this fun filled activity is perfect for children and adults alike. Take an exhilarating ride down the slopes on a tube where you will end up at the base of the hill right next to the tow rope where you will be towed back to the top to do it again! After your one hour session, we guarantee you will be hooked!
Reservations are recommended.
The Hanson Hills Snow Sports School offers a variety of instructional programs that will help you learn to ski or simply make your skiing experience easier and more enjoyable.
