Hickory Hills Ski Area
Each year thousands of recreational enthusiasts enjoy the Hickory Hills Ski Area for snowboarding, alpine skiing, cross-country skiing, and recreational snow-shoeing. In addition to the general public, many community organizations rely on Hickory Hills for their programs and activities including the Grand Traverse Ski Club, the Traverse City Central High School Varsity Ski Team (2010 Boys State Champions!), the middle school ski teams of TC West Middle School and TC East Middle School as well as the VASA High School Nordic Ski Club. Clearly, the long-term financial viability of this tremendous community asset is an important issue for not only the City of Traverse City but also for those families and young people who enjoy the accessible and affordable recreational opportunities available at Hickory.
