Fall Color Update - September 16, 2016

We are getting ready for a Fabulous Fall Color Season in Northern Lower Michigan and the Upper Peninsula. Mild weather so far in September has set back any significant early fall color. However, if you want to so early season fall color scouting, there are some great early season happenings. The Copper Peak Ski Jump and Adventure Ride in the Western U.P. is operating 7 days a week now through October 23. Take the ski lift and elevator to the top of the Copper Peak Ski Jump for some of the best (and exhilarating) views of rugged Western U.P. and Lake Superior.
You can also treat yourself to fall chairlift rides starting this weekend at the Porcupine Mountains Ski Area. They will be running the lifts Saturday and Sunday from noon to 7pm. The Fall Color Chair Lift Rides at the Porcupine Mountains Ski Area will be operating through the first three weekends of October - Sept. 17-18, 24-25 and Oct. 1-2, 8-9 and 15-16.

Get out and enjoy this wonderful weather in September and check back for fall color updates all season long.
