The ever-popular Amelia's Haus at Big Powderhorn Mountain Ski Resort has been acquired by UpNorth Lodging, furnished with many upgrades, and is now SnowBlind Chalet!  We welcome all past Big Powderhorn Lodging guests of Amelia's Haus and invite new one's to experience all the comfort, amenities and hospitality SnowBlind has for you!

This six-unit condo chalet, right at the base of Big Powderhorn Mountain--just two blocks from the brand new in 2012 Gun-Barrel Main Lodge, is a favorite of skiers, snowboarders and snowmobilers alike for it's ideal proximity to the Big Powderhorn Mountain slopes, the 26km Wolverine Nordic Cross-Country Ski Trails and direct access with no trailering necessary to Snowmobile Trail #2 and the blast of the vast network of hundreds of miles of awesome groomed western UP Michigan snowmobile trails and off-trail sledding fun the Lake Superior snow belt provides!

 A long-time favorite of ski/snowmobile/ATV clubs, SnowBlind can easily accommodate your family/groups--large and small, all within the same chalet.  There is plenty of plowed parking on site to store all your vehicles/trailers.  Also, don't forget to ask about the lift vouchers we offer you to ski BlackJack, Indianhead and WhiteCap at a discount and remember to bring your favorite steaks/burgers to grill on one of SnowBlind's two BBQ gas grills under cover at the entrance to the chalet.

Nestled right in the heart of "Big Snow Country" in the western UP northwoods, each condo in this inviting six-unit chalet offers comfortable lodging for up to six guests with a fully-equipped modern kitchen, two roomy bedrooms--each with queen beds, two full bathrooms, premium mattresses, linens, goose-down bedding and towels, gas fireplace and the advantage of your own private six-person cedar-surround hot tub room.  That's right, no sharing with other guests or sign-up schedules here.  Your own relaxing hot tub spa is steaming away in your condo waiting just for you after an exhilarating day on the slopes and trails!


When it's time to ski/board--it's just a short walk to the lifts of the top ranked Big Powderhorn Mountain runs--or dial up the complimentary shuttle to pick you up and bring you back to your SnowBlind doorstep or any other of the many choices in the Powderhorn area for great food, cocktails, activities and entertainment.  For variety, BlackJack Ski Resort, Indianhead Mountain Ski Resort, the ABR Cross Country Ski TrailsMt. Zion Snow Tubing Park and legendary nightlife of Hurley, WI are all within 5 miles and the WhiteCap Mountains Ski Resort is just a short 13 mile drive, so stay for a weekend or play for a week--you never run out of big fun in Big Snow Country!
