From December through March, skiers and snowboarders flock to White Lake in southeast Michigan to test their skills at Alpine Valley. A total of 25 tree-lined slopes descends down the mountainside, including 11 beginner runs and six intermediate runs. The resort's longest trail checks in at 2,000 feet, which is long enough to practice a few tricks or hear a couple pages from your favorite audiobook. In addition to its well-maintained slopes, Alpine Valley makes getting around its terrain easy, too. The property buzzes with nine chairlifts, four rope tows, and even a magic carpet for novices.
