December 5th – 8th 2019

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.

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!

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!

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.
