Ski Mackinac – Winter Photos From Mackinac Island

Most visitors only see Mackinac Island during the warm days of summer, however, the wonders of the island are perhaps even more grand and beautiful in the winter. Uncrowded, snow-covered streets and groomed ski trails leading to stunning  vistas, make a winter trip to Mackinac Island a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Here are some photos of winter on the island from March 2009. (Look for more information online about visiting Mackinac Island in the winter soon.)

“Photos from March 13, 14 & 15, 2009, from the ice around Mackinac Island and the trails on the island.”
