Cannonsburg Ski Area | Ski Pure Michigan


Grand Rapids is home to an active winter
sports community who travel throughout the state to enjoy their passions. When it’s time to hit the slopes a little closer to home, Canonsburg Ski Area is a great place for the entire family to get some turns in. Only 20 minutes from downtown Grand
Rapids, Canonsburg sits on rolling terrain that naturally lends itself to
be a great ski hill. The ski area has a variety of terrain
designed for skiers and snowboarders of all ability levels, including some of
Michigan’s top terrain parks. Cannonsburg has 22 runs, 3 chair lifts, 2 magic carpets and 4 rope tows, getting skiers back to the top and quick fashion. Today we had a blast skiing on their signature run ‘The Face’. It’s easy to see why this is their favorite ‘The Face’ is a great wide run with a
consistent pitch that lends itself to carving it up from top to bottom. When you’re done on the slopes take a
couple of laps on their tubing facility, touted as the largest tubing facility in
the state, or go for a ride on their groomed fat tire bike trails. Rentals are
available right at the base of the ski area and if you haven’t tried this
dynamic winter activity yet I highly recommend it. Visit michigan.org/skipuremichigan to see other episodes in the

attractions in the area.
