This is a wonderous picture looking south on Hamilton Road in Sauble, Michigan, whose one time most famous resident was the Ward Hills Ski Area. Now the area is known as the Ward Hills Lodge but I’m not certain if it is still open for business. It was a place for summer volleyball and winter sledding. Plus parties, movies, and dancing were to take place in the Lodge itself which also had an enormous deck.

You can easily make out the breathtaking ski runs in this photograph which was taken by the website “My Quality Day“. However, in this post I also wanted to provide you with the opposite view looking north up Hamilton Road from atop those ski runs.

In May of 2012, I am going to present a short two-part series on the little town of Sauble, Michigan, where the Ward Hills Lodge is now located. It should be fun!
