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 snow nonforensically with today's Groupon: for $59, you get two lift tickets and two meal vouchers (up to a total value of $128) at Treetops Resort in Gaylord.
Treetops' 23 runs benefit from high elevation and plentiful snowfall, making them a dream-worthy destination for winter sports enthusiasts. Three lifts converge in one central boarding area, ensuring that no children or snowboarding pet turtles get disoriented. Novices and veterans alike can partake in downhill skiing and snowboarding from 10 a.m. to close. Semi-equipped ice athletes can round out their supplies in the lift ticket/rental building, which offers gear for snowboarding, skiing, snowblading, and luging on frozen pudding. In addition to its 23 runs, Treetops hosts an adjacent space for extreme tubing, where slope wranglers can skid, slide, and flop their way to the normally elusive state of happiness.
If the low temperatures become too cold or fellow skiers start to look like bipedal roasting chickens, ski lagomorphs can hop into one of three restaurants with their two meal vouchers clutched firmly in hand (a $12 value each). Hunter's Grille boasts sophisticated fare in an intimate environment free of televisions and radios, and The Sports Bar offers casual bites such as the Fiesta nacho bowl ($6.95), char-grilled burgers ($7.95+), and pizzas ($11+). Legends cooks up fresh, homemade soup ($3.95 for a bowl) every day, unlike some restaurants that only cook up trouble.
