Additional Information

Located in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Big Powderhorn Mountain is part of the Gogebic mountain range, which was a chief source of iron ore until the 1920s. Today, Big Powderhorn Mountain is a 253-acre ski area that features two terrain parks, seven kilometers of groomed cross country ski trails, ten lifts, 33 downhill ski trails, and a  622 feet vertical drop. There is also a snow sports school, ice skating, horse-drawn sleigh rides, and lodging.

This is a variation of the I heart NY logo that was created in 1977 by Milton Glaser for an ad campaign created by advertising agency Wells Rich Greene. The marketing campaign was sought by then-Deputy Commissioner William S. Doyle to increase tourism in the state of New York. The campaign was a wild success. The original sketch of the logo is permanently on display at the MOMA.

The logo has become iconic in pop-culture and has been imitated in many forms around the world.
