Over the years, The Highlands tradition has grown to embrace the winter season like a homecoming. When winter arrives each year, we're in our element -- ready to share Michigan's finest skiing and snowboarding with longtime friends - and a steady stream of new ones to the Harbor Springs area.
At The Highlands, our winter visitors have access to 53 beautifully groomed and maintained downhill runs, and a wide variety of terrain parks suited to riders and skiers of every ability - all served by a network of lifts designed to make the most of each and every day. And when skiing and riding winds down, the fun continues. With tubing, snowshoeing and a host of other activities available, you'll find more than enough fun to chase away the winter blues.
For the safety of our guests on night skiing days, beginning at 4:30pm daily, we will shut down a section of the ski area while grooming takes place. We estimate this to take only about 60 minutes before reopening for use. The same process will happen again at 5:30pm for a different section. We appreciate our guest's understanding in our efforts to provide the best skiing conditions possible.
