About Mont Ripley
Mont Ripley is the only ski area in the Midwest that is owned & operated by a university, Michigan Technological University, whose students ski and snowboard for free with their paid tuition. It is located on the Keweenaw Peninsula in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan very close to the cities of Houghton & Hancock. Mont Ripley is one of the oldest ski areas in the country.
Skiers have been going down Ripley’s slopes since the 30’s. It is known for steep runs, long & gentle beginning area, open bowl skiing, abundant natural snowfall and its high tech snowmaking system. In recent years new runs & glades have been added in areas that once where out of bounds and two terrain parks cater to the freestyle skiers & snowboarders. From the top of Ripley there is a beautiful view of Houghton, Michigan Tech and the Huron Mountains. Giant snowflakes frequently drift through the lights that are on six nights a week.
