A few words on the Snow at Indianhead Mountain

Indianhead has no detail snow data, but we accept the published average of 210 inches snowfall due to considerable lake effect snow from Lake Superior. However, terrain is generally too flat for deep powder skiing.

Accumulation and Preservation

Indianhead's cold climate facilitates early season snowmaking, preserves the snow midwinter and it gets less winter rain than most Midwest ski areas. Relatively flat Midwest ski terrain will routinely melt/freeze in warm weather or March sun.
