Big Powderhorn Mountain Accommodations

Big Powderhorn Mountain, a family favorite ski resort surrounded by comfortable vacation rental accommodations, is located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan between the towns of Bessemer and Ironwood. Big Powderhorn vacation rental lodging and villas lie nestled in the heart of big snow country, where snow averages over 200 inches annually. Picturesque apartment rentals, condo rentals, chalet rentals and villa rentals surround Big Powderhorn Mountain Resort and are within 10 minutes of Indianhead Mountain Resort and Blackjack Resort.

Winter at Big Powderhorn offers an unlimited variety of outdoor entertainment and vacation rentals. In addition to alpine skiing at Big Powderhorn Ski Mountain you can choose from four other nearby ski areas, or several groomed Nordic cross-country ski trails. Some of the best snowmobile trails, snowshoeing, ice skating, and sleigh rides are just outside your door. Only minutes away from many cozy vacation rentals you can enjoy fine establishments for entertainment, dining, shopping and exploring. Don’t pass up the chance to visit the museums and historic community buildings that each town offers.

Being the best ski resort is rewarding! Big Powderhorn Mountain Resort has been recognized by as having the Best Downhill Terrain in the Midwest, the Best Family Resort, and being Second Best Overall in Michigan. Big Powderhorn Mountain Resort boasts 33 trails throughout 250 wooded acres, 3 terrain parks, and 9 lifts which are conveniently located steps away from warm and comfortable apartment rental, chalet rental, villa rental and rustic cabin accommodation.

In spring, when the snow melts, the hills come alive and the rivers run rampant. Summer boasts cooler temperatures along with picnics on the hills, biking through the forest and kayaking up the rugged, pristine shoreline of Lake Superior. The fall weather orchestrates turning the leaves to brilliant hues of reds and yellows, colors so vibrant that they almost seem to explode into a kaleidoscope that not many places can lay claim to. Right outside your apartment rental, condo rental, chalet rental or villa rental accommodation is the Black River Scenic Byway which will lead to five spectacular waterfalls, Copper Peak and Lake Superior.

The hills and valleys of Bessemer provide you with beautiful vistas, waterfalls, endless recreational opportunities and eclectic vacation rental accommodations. From skiing and snowmobiling to mountain biking, hiking and fishing, your day can be as full as you want when staying in apartment rentals, chalet rentals, villa rentals and cabins veiled in nature. You’ll soon realize how easy it is to feel the tranquility at Big Powderhorn Mountain, your true year round vacation rental destination where mountains of memories are made.
