Pick a Place to Stay: Cadillac isn’t just a summertime destination. Winter is packed with many budget-friendly activities that can get you out into Mother Nature, stretching your legs and enjoying the winter white. First off, accommodations are a must. Winter brings great daily lodging rates and you can expect to pay around $93.00/night on average, and there are even rooms starting at $59/night. With taxes, you will be right around $205 for your 2 nights in Cadillac. Not too shabby!

Hit the Slopes… or the Trails…

For the Downhill Skiing Family: Skiing at Caberfae Peaks introduces you to the largest vertical drop in the Lower Peninsula (at 500’) and also one of the best downhill skiing values you will ever find. You can enjoy an entire afternoon on the slopes, with grab-and-go food options on site, you can maximize your time on the powder. In addition, the awesome night skiing along with the new Backcountry ski area will make this one of the best ski experiences, dollar for dollar, over anywhere else in the State of Michigan.
