  • When we arrived they told us the elevator was down but we could still ride the chairlift and then walk up the ski jump. I was a little nervous at first but it was an easier walk than I thought it...

  • This is one of the coolest things to do in Ironwood Michigan, actually the whole upper Michigan for that point. It hasn’t been used for quite a while but everything is still intact. We came in August and took the elevator ride to the top which is I think about 38 stories up. You then have to climb another few stories to get to the actual top of it. Once you’re there you feel like you’ve stuck your head out of a moving plane, It’s that windy up there. You can feel the jump swaying from the wind! The views are absolutely amazing. You can see the apostle Islands, and lake superior as well. The staff here is very friendly and helpful. I forgot to mention to get to the elevator you have to take a chairlift which is super cool and super steep so if you’re afraid of heights you might want to rethink this. We had a blast, the cost was $25 a person but well worth it. They have a gift shop where you can purchase shirts and other stuff too. They’re trying to get money to restore the jump and open it once again. I hope they do. We will be back for sure.
  • Maybe not everyone's cup of tea(sit this one out if you are afraid of heights)but sure a beautiful spot to see! $25($20 if you are senior citizen age 65 or older)gets you a chair lift and elevator ride, but only so far up, then you climb the remaining 80 steep steps! It's worth the hike, the views are phenomenal at almost 300 feet up! For $16 you can ride the chair lift and elevator, which has an equally great view. One of the lift operators told us about a series of waterfalls not far from each other on a road that leads straight to a beautiful park and Lake Superior. So we took about a 5 mile ride to see what we could see. Glad we scoped it out for our summer of 2022 Pure Michigan adventure with waterfalls and a Lake Superior picnic lunch!
