SNOW SKOOTERS IN ACTION: Petoskey places emphasis on snow-skooters, sometimes called saddle skis, which are a recent addition to winter sports. Skillful riders can take the little skooters down winding courses and over jumps. The two pictured above are racing down one of the hills surrounding Petoskey's snow bowl, the in-city winter sports center.

BELLBOY SKATES: All sorts of costumes are to be found at Petoskey's snow bowl, where figure skating, an exciting but pleasurable sport, has done much to keep skating one of the most prominent and popular winter sports. Even at Petoskey, however, skiing challenges skating, and the city is developing ski facilities in the surrounding countryside.

PRECISION FIGURE SKATING is one of the sports cultivated at Petoskey, which was among Michigan's pioneer cities in winter sports. Scores of children enroll in classes to learn the technique of group skating and choral work on the ice. This scene is from Petoskey's snow bowl, the in-city sports center that has facilities for skating, tobogganing, snow-skooters and, on a limited scale, skiing. Three heated buildings offer warmth and shelter to winter sports fans who want to rest a few moments.
