Upper Peninsula, Michigan


When it comes to snowmobiling, more snow means more fun, and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula gets a ton of snow. With an annual average accumulation exceeding 200-inches of white stuff, the U.P. has snow when most of the rest of the country is browned out. Add 3,000 miles of marked, mapped and groomed snowmobile trails plus great support services, and riding just doesn’t get any better than it is in the U.P. That’s why knowledgeable riders flock here from all over the Midwest and even well beyond.upper-peninsula-for-vg

From one end of the U.P. to the other, you’ll find outstanding riding with awesome Great Lakes scenery, along with a wide variety of comfortable accommodations, great dining and shopping opportunities, snowmobile dealers and rentals, many after-snowmobiling recreational opportunities and everything else you’ll need for a truly memorable snowmobile vacation.

While you are visiting the U.P., make sure to visit the many trailside attractions. Some of them are natural attractions like the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore. The U.P. is also blessed with over 300 scenic waterfalls that range from less than 5 feet to nearly 50 feet in height. A couple of real trailside favorites are Bond Falls near Paulding, an impressive and lengthy series of small cascades, and Tahquamenon Falls near Newberry, America’s second tallest cataract east of the Mississippi River.

Other attractions are man-made, like the famous Top of the Lake Snowmobile Museum in Naubinway, a must-visit for any vintage sled head. And if you like casinos, you’ll find several in the UP.
