EXPLORING IN WINTER

200 miles of groomed snowmobile trails, 34 downhill ski runs with over 485 feet of vertical drop, over 60 miles of cross-country ski and snow shoe trails, and several acres of frozen lakes for ice fishing make Cadillac an ideal winter destination. 

WINTER WONDERLAND

While snowmobiling, downhill skiing, snowboarding, and year-around fishing are Cadillac’s best known recreational winter pursuits, winter enthusiasts have an abundance of choices to experience the season. Cross-country skiing, trekking, snowshoeing, hunting, photographic quests, and camping adventures in this area rival any in the country. 

With 200 miles of groomed snowmobile trails, 34 downhill ski runs with over 485 feet of vertical drop, over 60 miles of cross-country ski and snow shoe trails, and several acres of frozen lakes for ice fishing, Cadillac is the ultimate winter destination. We have activities for winter warriors of all ages throughout the season: Coyote Youth SnoCross Cup, North American Snow Festival, MDNR Free Fishing weekend, Caberfae Ski Resort, and more.
