Full review

After skiing at most of the larger northern Michigan ski areas for the past 40+ years, my sons, grandsons, and I thought it was time to try Schuss/Shanty Creek for a family ski weekend. We’re very glad we did! We were pleasantly surprised by the variety of trails (pitch, width, length, rolling, tree-lined, glades, etc.) and the number of quad chairs. It was fairly easy to find our way around. We have varied ability levels in our group but all could find something of interest that led us back to the same chair. The grooming was excellent and most of the chair lift operators were very attentive and friendly. There is a nice family-friendly ambiance that has us looking forward to our next visit!
