Caberfae Peaks Ski & Golf Resort equips skiers with the snow-gliding gear needed to forge a path down 34 mountain runs. Buried under an average of 150 inches of lake-effect snow each year, the mountain slopes range from easy bunny hills to black-diamond inclines best tackled by expert skiers or mountain goats. The rental shop outfits skiers and snowboarders in gear from well-known brands such as Volkl, Nordica, and Burton, preparing patrons for a safe, comfortable day on the slopes. A quartet of chairlifts escorts skiers to the top of the mountain, seating two to four people or one rhinoceros per chair. To warm up chilly toes, guests can snuggle up to the two-story fireplace in the indoor sitting room, thawing bodies before heading back out into the snowscape.
Though Caberfae Peaks Ski & Golf Resort sometimes features a discounted price online and rates vary throughout the week, this Groupon still represents the best deal available.
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.
