Large Ski Bum Statue
Heading east into Michigan and the Upper Peninsula, drivers will spot an advertisement for a ski resort in the shape of a giant goggled skier. The fiberglass statue stands at the entrance of Big Powderhorn Mountain. His little ski slope platform is labeled "Skiing Capital of the Midwest."
We don't know when exactly this was installed, but we deduced that it dates from the 1960s, thanks to our knowledge of ski outfits gleaned at the U.S. National Ski Hall Of Fame And Museum.
