MITTS 4 MI KIDS
The Michigan Snowsports Industries Association (MSIA) has a program called “Mitts 4 MI Kids.” It allows Michigan
skiers to donate their gently used ski mitts and gloves. The ski area will then give them to their field trip kids

the mittens or gloves home to keep their hands warm all winter long. More info...
