Marquette Mountain is a winter sports area for skiing and snow boarding, located within city limits a few miles south of downtown Marquette, Michigan, the major city in the state's Upper Peninsula.

The base area's parking lot is adjacent to highway M-553.Popular from the start, the ski area opened in late 1957. It was originally known as Cliffs Ridge, as it operated on land leased from the Cleveland-Cliffs Iron Company of Cleveland, Ohio. The first chairlift, a Riblet double, was installed on the skier's right side of Rocket Run in the fall of 1972. Previously, there were 2 T-bars (the original Constam on the skier's left of Rocket and a newer Hall Ski-Lift on the skier's left of Snowfield) and several rope tows. The ski area was renamed "Marquette Mountain" in 1982.Marquette Mountain is host to alpine race events for numerous clubs, as well as their own race program. They also host NASTAR races.

  • Great ski hill. Super friendly staff. Food specials. 25 cent wings on Wednesday. Fish fry Friday that is good. Lift ticket specials. I'm so glad we have it here in Marquette.
  • I have never had a bad time visiting Marquette Mountain over the years. Always adequate snow and great groomed trails.
  • Building is a little old, but not bad. The slopes are great. A few of them aren't groomed at times though.
  • flexible for events outside of regular ski things, staff was willing to stick around after the expected time so we could finish our event
  • Nice size hill with many types of terrian. From beginner to expert. Mostly natural snow. Lifts lines are usually short.
