This year marks the 31st year of Ski Weekends at UMBS. In response to demand we are offering 3 ski weekends this year: January 31-February 2, February 7-9 and February 14-16, 2014.
If there is snow, we will have groomed cross-country trails on the Station's land for skiers of all abilities. Guests are also welcome to visit nearby ski hills instead, or simply enjoy relaxing by the wood stove.
Guests stay in the dorm and prepare their own food in the dorm kitchen. The dorm can accommodate 28 people in 14 rooms (each pair of rooms shares a bath). Please note that the Biological Station is a smoke-free campus.
We will begin accepting on-line reservations at this site on a first come, first served basis Friday, January 3, 2014.
Questions? E-mail Lisa Readmond at the Pellston Office (231-539-8408).
