Big Powderhorn – Bessemer

On Jan. 4, 1968, The Cass City Chronicle printed the “AAA Michigan 1968 Guide to Winter Sports Fun.” It listed Big Powderhorn, near Bessemer and Ironwood, as having 11 slopes covering all abilities, 2 double chairlifts, T-bar and 2 rope tows.

Big Powderhorn now claims 33 runs and 3 terrain parks, 9 double chairlifts and a beginners handle-tow, with snow-making covering 93% of the 253 acres. They are scheduled to open on Dec. 10, 2011 for the 2011-12 season.

The appraisal firm, Closser Associates, reports that they brokered an offer for the sale of the resort in 2008. They also report that the lodging association had a water sufficiency problem back in 2000, potentially affecting property values.
