All Reviews

Shanty Creek offers 47 trails over two distinctive ski areas. All the tough stuff is on Schuss Mountain. There are Slopeside condos and a popular tube park. Looking for a Midwest thrill ride? Make a run down Kingdom Come with its 450-foot vertical drop.

Located about 80 miles north of Montreal, Mont Tremblant provides visitors with magnificent panoramic views of the Laurentians Mountains. The pedestrian-only village is home to abundant dining, lodging and shopping options. The resort is a great destination for families, and it provides activities other than just skiing and snowboarding.

Where Is Schuss Mountain at Shanty Creek Located?

Cherry Capital Airport in Traverse City (TVC) is about an hour from the ski resort. For private pilots, the Antrim County Airport (ACB) is an option, being four miles from Shanty Creek. There are free shuttle services between the three villages.
