S & L Arctic K9’s Dog Sled Adventure is located just 15 minutes north of Cadillac, Michigan.

We are a recreational sled dog kennel & training site that encourages the practice and growth of sled dog activities through education, training and running sled dogs.

Hickory Hills features 8 runs with 1 beginner, 5 intermediate, and 2 advanced runs that are serviced by 5 rope tows. Night skiing is available on 7 of the runs. Cross country skiers will find 4k of trails with a 1k trail lighted for night skiing. The Ski Patrol assists by promoting safe skiing and offering first aid services.

Tubing: Our tubing hill opens 1 hour after our slopes open and starts at the top of every hour. We do recommend reservations as some hours book up. We do not have an age or height limit, we do, however, require each child to ride independently in their own tube… meaning they cannot sit on anyone’s lap.

Caberfae Peaks is conveniently located in Northern Michigan’s snowbelt. The resort sits in relatively high elevation and is the perfect distance from Lake Michigan. As a result, the “lake effect” snow machine manufactures an average of 150+ inches of annual snowfall per year!

Snow Tubing at Timberlee Hills is the perfect way to spend the day with your whole family in Traverse City this winter. It’s all the fun of sledding – without hiking back up the hill!

Crystal Mountain Established in 1956, Crystal Mountain is a family-owned, four-season resort recognized nationally as one of the Midwest’s premier destinations.

postponed until 2021

Step back in time as you take part in one of Michigan’s most unique holiday celebrations. An entire weekend of excitement including the Victorian Sleighbell Parade with horse drawn entries, bagpipers, reindeer meet and greet and carolers elegantly dressed in Victorian style attire.

Our story started 20 years ago visiting Leland as a family for the first time. The simplicity and beauty of the “tucked away” secret that is Leelanau has always been what we treasure most about the area.

The Simpson family has been growing fruit on the Leelanau Peninsula for three generations. Before the cultivation of vineyards, the Simpson’s were a cherry farming family caring for and harvesting over 300 acres. It was Bruce’s father, John Simpson who had the vision of vineyards and a winery.

Caberfae Peaks Ski Resort boasts Michigan's highest lift-served peaks and some of the state's biggest vertical drops. With 34 runs, skiers and riders will enjoy the best advanced, intermediate, and novice ski runs in the state. As Michigan's closest up-north ski resort, you'll spend less time in the car and more time on the slopes.

An Artisan's Approach... We are dedicated to making wines that reflect the unique character and quality of our vineyard and the vineyards of Michigan. Whether carefully sourcing grapes from top sites in the state or from our own vineyard, our winery was built on the belief that great wines begin in the vineyard.

Dave and Jane were introduced to Leelanau County in the late 1980’s when they stayed at Fountain Point Resort in Lake Leelanau. They never missed a year with their family at Fountain Point until 2002 when they built a second home in Leland. In 2004 Dave retired and they moved up to their home in Leland full time.

One of a kind location, come and visit or warm tasting room. The regions first (and only) totally Certified Organic Vineyard, Orchards & Winery and NOW Leelanau's FIRST Micro Brewery. Serving crafted beers made by Guest Brewers.

Shanty Creek is a four-season resort featuring 72 holes of championship golf on four courses (Cedar River, The Legend, Schuss Mountain and Summit), 53 ski runs on two mountains (Schuss Mountain and Summit Mountain), 30km of cross-country skiing, a 6-lane alpine tubing park, winter sleigh rides, and Michigan’s most awarded terrain parks.

You’re away from everyday stressors and pressure…at the edge of the water, with people you enjoy and doing what you want. You are relaxed, maybe enjoying a sunset or the sand between your toes. Just add a glass of Skipping Stone Cellars wine to make it perfect.
