One of the first resorts to open for the season in Michigan, Pine Knob is at the top of the game when it comes to making the best snow. With over a hundred snow guns, and high-volume capacities, we can really make a LOT of snow. We maintain a solid base on the ground all season long so that you can visit even when there is no snow in your yard.
Explore your passion and the pursuit of excellence with Thunderbolt Racing. We offer Holiday Race Camps and Beginner Terrain Park Camps. We offer Junior Development Programs for youth. Adults can join the adult race leagues which include the Slalom Sisters or the New Belgium Beer League.
We have also added some new Saturday Slalom Race Series and other fun events. Something is always going on at the Pine Knob Race Hill!
