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!

Villa Mari founder Marty Lagina made the (some would say) crazy choice to grow grapes that shouldn't grow in Michigan, with the belief that he could produce world class wines that otherwise couldn't be made here. So, true to his Italian heritage, he planted exotic varieties like Nebbiolo, Sangiovese and others.

Jan. 25, 2020, 11 a.m.- 5 p.m.

Each January Ice Wine Festival celebrates the unique ability to grow, harvest & produce one of the rarest products in the wine industry, Ice Wine!
