Pure Michigan’s January journey offers, ski resorts to cozy cabins

In Michigan, we find our winter fun in many ways. For some of us, it flies down a ski slope on a bluebird sky day at our favorite resort. Others let their snowshoes guide them onto the nearest forest path, then come back and tuck themselves into a cozy hut for a little R&R. Extreme tubing, snowmobiling, biking with fat tires or cross-country skiing – it’s time to do your favorite cold weather activity and plan a short getaway.

To get you started, Pure Michigan released its January travel deals.
