Chassell Michigan, Cross Country Ski Trail in the Upper Peninsula

Chassell Classic Cross Country Ski Trail

at Chassell Michigan in the Upper Peninsula, 9 miles south of Houghton.

On trails groomed for the traditional skier, the whole family can enjoy the pleasures of skiing the Chassell Classic. The hills have been designed to provide ample landing space at the bottom with no surprise corners. A 1.0 km lighted trail adds hours of skiing time to the short winter days. Tremendous cooperation from private landholders and The Chassell Recreation Club have made this trail possible. This trail is maintained by volunteers. Your donations are needed to keep it maintained! Please place your donation in the box provided at the Heritage Center.

Trails are groomed Wednesday and Friday, and weekends as necessary. When it is snowing heavily, trails are groomed five days a week.
