*Information courtesy of Ottawa County's Pigeon Creek

Our recent blast of lake effect snow is putting us back into an active winter sports season at Pigeon Creek Park in Holland.  This is especially good news considering the investments made at the park this fall.  The Lodge underwent a complete renovation, increasing capacity, functionality as well as ascetics.  Ski renters will enjoy well maintained and new equipment with 80 sets of skis and poles plus 100 pairs of boots added to the stock for the season.

The park boasts over 10 miles trails for hiking, snowshoeing and skiing.
