Caberfae Peaks Ski & Golf Resort, in Michigan's Lower Peninsula, is offering a $99 season pass available now until the end of October. It may be one of the best deals on skiing and riding in the Wolverine State.
A Weekend Pass, which entitles you to ski and ride Saturday and Sunday all season long, is currently $99. A Midweek Pass, good Monday through Friday, is also $99. Both go up $50 per pass on Nov. 1. A Peak Pass, valid anytime the area's open, is $198 and will go up to $298 on the above date. Children's (eight and younger) passes start at $10.
The Caberfae season pass entitles you to $10 lift tickets, Sunday through Thursday, and $25 lift tickets, Friday and Saturday, at Shanty Creek; located about an hour north. The offer is not good during holiday periods. Passholders are also entitled to half-off lift tickets at Cannonsburg, Swiss Valley, Timber Ridge and Apple Mountain.
The ski resort also partnered with nearby McGuire's Resort in Cadillac to offer a season pass that includes six nights lodging at the upscale McGuire's. There are no blackout dates on lodging during the season. The cost of the pass, which includes unlimited skiing and riding as well as six nights lodging, starts at $299 per person, double occupancy. Only 50 passes are available, and all participants must buy their passes at the same time online.
Over the summer the ski area added over 30 new snowguns and nearly tripled the width of the three-quarter-mile-long Smiling Irishmen. Beatie's Bar & Grill also opened in MacKenzie Lodge.
Caberfae Peaks offers six lifts and 35 runs with nearly a 500-foot vertical drop. It sits at the highest elevation of any ski resort in northern Lower Michigan, and has the largest day-lodge in the region, complete with a two-story stone fireplace. The newly-renovated Mackenzie Lodge offers slopeside lodging and dining.
