When traveling throughout our great state during the winter months,
it’s possible to find activities to suit everyone - outdoor enthusiasts,
families, adventure seekers and everyone in between. Whether you
prefer sledding or tubing, ice fishing or hunting, or even dog sledding,
Michigan offers endless amounts of outdoors adventures. For those
who prefer to stay warm, many destinations boast resorts with indoor
water parks and award-winning spas. I welcome you to experience the
diversity of experiences the Mitten State has to offer. Because when
you’re a Michigander, every day is a snow day.
To find locations for any of the activities mentioned above, along with
more detailed information about parks, accommodations and indoor
options, please visit www.michigan.org/winter to use Pure Michigan’s

Michigan’s most magical time of year has arrived. From sledding hills
filled with laughter and joy to the sense of wonder that accompanies a
snowshoe trek through the woods on a silent evening, this is the best
time of year to conquer fresh hills and explore new trails. Opportunities
abound to bundle up and head outdoors to play in the winter wonderland
of Pure Michigan.

ICE FISHING SAFETY TIPS
4No ice is safe ice! Ice thickness varies across a lake. Avoid areas where there is
flow (feeder streams and springs) or in-water obstructions (bridge pilings, docks,
and dam structures), since ice is usually thinner around these objects.
4Always fish with a partner or in an area where several other anglers are present.
4Let others know exactly where you are going and when you plan to return.
4Place a cell phone in a plastic bag to protect it from moisture in case you get wet.
4Always take along a throw cushion or wear a personal flotation device in case
of immersion.
