Maple Mountain Ski Area – Munising

I was looking for a ski area close to Christmas (it’s Dec. 25,  2011 as I write this) and the closest I could get was Maple Mountain Ski Area just south of Munising. It was listed as having both alpine and nordic skiing, but I haven’t found any other information about it.

If you have any information about skiing at Maple Mountain, please post it or send it to us via the directions on the About MILSAP page.

    Our family was involved in the clearing of the hill where Maple Mountain was. We cut enough firewood for about three winters. My parents bought all 5 of us our Skis from the local Holiday Gas Station. I think they were Champion Brand, all wood! We skied every Saturday and Sunday from open to close for many years! I think we have some old pictures that I can dig up and post for you. I was told the hill closed due to a death on the rope-tow. Great Chalet!

      Thanks Tom. We’ll look forward to seeing the pictures. Can you put a date on clearing the hill and maybe on the closing of the area?

        How can i get a few pics to you?

      • MILSAP says:

        Tom, you can email them to milsap@comcast.net. You might have to send them one at a time if the files are really big. If they are too big to email, you could post copies to me by snail mail or you could send the originals if you cannot copy or scan them and I will scan them and return your originals to you. If email does not work, let me know and I will email you my street address (I am reluctant to post it on the web).

  2. I found an article here about a fatal accident that occurred in 1989. A boy’s clothing got tangled in the lift equipment and he died. http://articles.orlandosentinel.com/1989-12-27/news/8912272544_1_lift-machinery-ski-michigan-upper-peninsula
