While up in Boyne country this December, we were looking at an old MUCC Michigan County Maps atlas for the little pictures of the skiers that marked ski areas. I happened to notice one in Wexford County, right next to Cadillac, labeled Diggins Park Ski Area. When I got home, I looked it up on the Internet. Diggins Hill Community Park is still a city park in Cadillac; a 14-acre tract most noted for its Diggins Hill tennis courts, which were originally built in the early 1900’s. Over the years, the park has been used for many recreational activities, including downhill skiing.
I had been searching (unsuccessfully) for information about tows or lifts, but on December 30, 2012, Steve Erber posted a comment on the Cadillac stub that there had been 2 rope tows and 4 runs at Diggins Hill and that the tows had operated until at least 1968. He mentioned some old pictures, so I will contact him and ask him to please send them along.
