Snow has two positive uses: it can be used to build snow-jurors when neighbors don't show up to serve in a nonbinding apartment court, and you can ski on it. Enjoy the exhilarating side of frozen precipitation with today’s Groupon: for $19, you get any lift ticket at Caberfae Peaks Ski & Golf Resort in Cadillac (up to a $42 value). Caberfae Peaks is smothered in more than 150 inches of “lake-effect” snow every year, begging gravity surfers to slide down its 485 vertical feet. Equip yourself for hours of shredding with an English-to-snowman phrase book and any lift ticket, including night skiing and all-day passes. Flash your badge and grab one of the double-chair, triple-lift, quad-lift, or surface tows up toward the peak, then slice, race, or jetpack down any of the 34 runs carved by the glaciers when they skied back to the North Pole after the last ice age. Two different terrain parks give tricksters a place to hone their skills, and an enormous, inviting day lodge greets winter-weary mountaineers with a cafe, libation-filled pub, and two-story fireplace.
Caberfae Peaks Ski & Golf Resort offers different lift ticket rates throughout the day and evening. This Groupon's value is best for an all-day pass. Plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time.
- The hill is very friendly, nice lodge and they allow brown-bagging and crockpots for cooking lunch. Cadillac gets a good amount of lake effect snow. – emtnate, EpicSki
- The place isn't that big but we never once had to wait in line at the lifts. The Chili (both beef & chicken) were the absolute BEST ever - highly recommend! The restrooms were large and very clean. – nowincolorado, TripAdvisor
Caberfae Peaks Ski & Golf Resort
Nestled along Northern Michigan's snow belt, Caberfae Peaks Ski & Golf Resort sends visitors careening down 34 different ski runs, offering a total of 485 feet of vertical drop. Its location near Lake Michigan helps the resort average more than 150 inches of annual snowfall per year. Beyond skiing and snowboarding, the frosty harvest enables the resort to offer other wintery activities.
Away from the slopes, visitors relax inside Blackmer Day Lodge, a cozy facility outfitted with cathedral ceilings, a two-story stone fireplace, and rustic exposed timber. Extended stays, meanwhile, unfold at Mackenzie Lodge, located right at the base of the slopes, where an outdoor heated pool and hot tub await to help guests relax or cook lobsters they brought with them in their suitcases. And, during months when a heated pool isn't necessary, Caberfae challenges golfers with a scenic nine-hole course peppered with wetlands, ravines, and fairways lined with 75-foot trees.
