* The Winter Experience *

 


The Pure Michigan Winter Experience, sponsored by MGM Grand Detroit, brings the state’s great outdoor traditions to Downtown Detroit with a winter-themed environment that features the michigan.org 200-foot snow slide, dog sledding exhibitions, snowboarding exhibitions, and snowshoeing. Everyone that visits the Winter Blast must take a turn at the 200-foot snow slide!

 

There's only one weekend when you can enjoy free ice skating at Campus Martius Park, and that's during Winter Blast. Ice-skating will be provided free to the public courtesy of Compuware Corporation.

 

The Dog Sleds will be back! Be sure to catch dog sledding exhibitions from Michigan kennels that compete in dog sled races throughout the state from January through March each year.

 

Amanda Vogel
Musher Amanda Vogel, 30, originally hails from Bay City, MI. Amanda began sled dog racing as an amateur six years ago, and became a professional musher in 2005. Her transition from amateur to professional has been marked by numerous racing successes. Vogel travels across the Midwest to compete in various mid-distance races each season including: The Midnight Run and The Tahquamenon Country Sled Dog Race, both in Michigan's Upper Peninsula; Apostle Islands Sled Dog Race in Bayfield, Wisconsin; The White Oak Sled Dog Classic and The WolfTrack Classic Sled Dog Race, both in northern Minnesota. Her current racing interests include growing her kennel and transitioning into stage racing.

 

Have you ever tried snowshoeing? If not get your start at Detroit’s Winter Blast! Snowshoes are available for rental for $2, with $1 of each rental going to benefit the Michigan Humane Society! Get the hang of it and it will quickly become another favorite Michigan wintertime sport of yours!
