January is the coldest month of the year, with the average low temperatures reaching a freezing 18°F (-7.8°C). The daily highs average a chilly 28°F (-2.2°C), and there is no trace of the summer visitors.
Snow records a vast 30" (762mm), and rain at 2.6" (66mm) is a strong deterrent to visit Frankfort in the icy conditions.
Bring winter coats, boots, mittens, reindeer gloves, and caps to face the icy weather. The only, yet perfect, reason to be in Frankfort in January is to experience downhill skiing and snowboarding at Crystal Mountain or snowmobiling on the 135 miles of trails across Benzie County. White Christmas and New Year are almost a certainty!
