Walk to Lift 8 at Big Powderhorn Mountain!  Ski home for lunch!
Find the trail in between the two condo buildings. 
Walk to the ski lodge or the Caribou for dinner
, a drink at the bar, or for live entertainment, a dip in the pool or mini golf in the basement.

Bear Hug is 180 steps from Lift 8, less than a 5-minute walk.  Look outside the patio doors in the morning and see that the lift is running.  Then walk to the end of the building, and head through the woods.  When you come out, you'll cross a road and Lift 8 will be right there.  It's a bit uphill going to the lift, but when you've had a great day on the slopes, you can ski the trail down!  Take the Tamarou Run back down to Lift 8 to get back to the trail.  Kids in our area also enjoy sledding on the trail.

There is also free shuttle service available.  Call Lodging for a pickup and tell them you are staying at Bear Hug at building number 522.  The shuttle will also take you home from any lift.  The shuttle circles the village continually so you can go to other attractions or visit friends in cabins anywhere in the village.  The shuttle is always available for pickup at the ski lodge.

Driving Directions  |  Google Map
Big Powderhorn Mountain is located on the very western edge of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.  We tell our friends it's at the top of Wisconsin, where Route 51 ends and then go east on Route 2 about 5 miles.  You will go through Ironwood, Michigan and continue on Route 2 until you see the Big Skier.  Turn onto Powderhorn Road.  After two miles, you will see the lodging office on your right, where you will stop to check in.  Continue the same direction and you'll pass the Cheese Haus on your right, and the ski lodge on your left.  Do not turn right and do not cross the tracks.  Continue straight onto Snow Strasse Road.  Go about 1/3 mile past the ski lodge and the two condominium buildings will be on your left.  Each building has four A-frame roofs.  See the sign on the road with the unit names.  Turn left in between the buildings, turn left into the parking lot, and go to the end of the first building.  Two parking spaces are reserved for Bear Hug guests.   Please park diagonally.
