Hawk Island Ski/Snowboarding Hill

Click HERE for up to the minute information on winter sports availability.

Please note there is a vehicle entrance fee at Hawk Island.  Hawk Island Snow Park will provide anyone access to winter snow sports within the city limits of Lansing, Michigan.  This unique, active sports facility – one of a handful in the U.S. – will be an incredible community asset serving multi-cultural urban youth, their families, our neighbors and visitors.  Anyone can come to Hawk Island to experience snow tubing and snowboarding. 

Hawk Island Snow Park offers a snow tubing hill and a snowboarding hill.  Snow tubes are included in the rental fee or bring your own snowboard.  The snow tubing hill pulls participants to the top of the hill by a tow rope.  The riders then travel down "chutes" made of sculpted snow, and can once again ride back up to the top. The second area is an Urban Terrain Park with features for snowboarders to include rails, and other items.  The terrain park also has a tow rope that will pull users to the top.  Snow making machines will be used to extend the time the snowboarding and snow tubing hill can be used.  There is also a warming building and snack bar.  In addition, the 1.5 mile paved path around the lake and the River Trail South between Hawk Island Park and Potter Park is cleared of snow and is available for walking or jogging.

Winter Snack Bar

Hawk Island has a small concession area offering hot chocolate, coffee, soda, candy, and chips.
