Five Factors that set Marquette Mountain apart from the rest of Midwest Skiing.
It’s no secret that Marquette Mountain has a Superior view. Seriously, if you’re on the slopes facing east, you can see the lake from almost any peak. Not to mention, Marquette Mountain has terrain to treat everyone’s taste. Whether you prefer rugged and natural, or tamed and well-groomed, there are runs sure to suit your style.
Marquette Mountain has events that cater to any kind of skier or boarder. If you check out their calendar on their site, you’ll see what we mean. On any given week there’s bound to be something, whether it’s races, competitions, themed days, or just special rates, it’s worth checking out what all the hype is about.
At most ski hills you retreat to the lodge for hot cocoa breaks and a warm fireplace, but at Marquette Mountain you’ll find most of the riders stop-in at Slope-side Saloon, or Casualties Fireside to crack a cold one and gather around the bonfire.
When it comes to creating a sense of community, Marquette Mountain cares. A big part of skiing and snowboarding is the social aspect, and at Marquette Mountain you can definitely feel that. Upon arrival, you’re greeted with warm smiles and welcomed into open arms by all of the slope staff. And if you’re in the singles-line for a chair lift, chances are you’ll have a new friend by the time you’re to the top.
Whether its snow-making, grooming, or revamping runs, Marquette Mountain is fully focused on keeping the park area fresh and fun for all. This year there’s a new uphill policy that was implemented after all of the hikers the hill started seeing last year. They’re also renovating the terrain park, and adding tons of treats to up your tricks.
