The Ski Resort

Big Powderhorn Mountain Ski Area is located between Bessemer and Ironwood. It offers over a hundred hectares of trails for all ability levels. If skiing and snowboarding is new to you, you may like to attend lessons at the local ski school. There you will learn everything you need to become a skilled skier or snowboarder. Experienced staff will help you with your first steps. You can choose from private and semi-private lessons. Another possibility is the  "Learn to love it" packages that include lessons, rental and lift ticket.

Parents may be interested in the Kinder Care offer. This is a babysitting service for children ages 2-6. Enjoy some winter fun on the trails while your child is in good hands and has some fun with other children of their age.

If you´re tired from skiing after a few days you may try some of the other winter activities Big Powderhorn Mountain has to offer. For example, you can go ice-skating or snow tubing. It´s fun for the whole family. Furthermore, there are extra trails for snowmobilers that never seem to end.
