Copper Peak

Welcome to Copper Peak, the only ski flying hill outside of Europe. Located near Ironwood in Michigan’s beautiful Upper Peninsula, Copper Peak is the world’s smallest ski flying hill homologated by the International Ski Federation (FIS). While Copper Peak’s Adventure Ride continues to draw in thousands of visitors each year to enjoy the views from the top of this unique attraction, plans are in the works to renovate and improve Copper Peak in order to host year-round ski flying events and training.

Our mission is to re-establish Copper Peak as the western hemisphere’s biggest active ski jump and host Summer Grand Prix competitions that will showcase Northern Wisconsin and Michigan’s Upper Peninsula as a global outdoor recreation destination.

Stormy Kromer – Factory Tour & Outlet

George “Stormy” Kromer was a real guy – a semi-pro baseball player and railroad engineer. Not the kind of guy you’d expect to start a clothing company, in other words, but one who happened to create a cap that became known for long-comfort and the ability to stay snug, even in the fiercest winds.

This final feature, in fact, is the reason he made his famous headgear in the first place, but we’ll get to that in a bit. (more…)

Porcupine Mountains

Porcupine Mountains State Park

Pristine woods. Outstanding recreational opportunities.

Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park is 15 miles west of Ontonagon in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The park’s 60,000 acres are one of the few remaining large wilderness areas in the Midwest. Towering virgin timber, secluded lakes, and miles of wild rivers and streams make a visit to the “Porkies” a trip to remember.

The Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park was established in 1945 by Michigan’s Legislature. Since then, many changes have taken place in the way we live; however, the Porcupine Mountains are almost unchanged. The remote interior with its towering pine and hemlock seems to defy time. The solitude of the park is mysterious and exciting.

Depot-Park-2-SM-compressor

Old Depot Museum and Ironwood Chamber

Built in 1892, the Chicago and Northwestern Railroad Depot was designed in the Richardson Romanesque style. It was the hub of an elaborate railroad yard operation in the center of Ironwood. As the mines closed, so too did the fortunes of the railroads, with the last iron ore trains ending in 1967 and passenger trains ending their service at the Depot in 1970. Purchased by the City of Ironwood, the Depot was refurbished by a dedicated group of volunteers, and it is now home to the Ironwood Area Historical Society and the Ironwood Area Chamber of Commerce.
