Early Season Value Specials Abound In Northern Michigan
With all the early snowfall and great snowmaking weather that invaded northern Michigan in November the slopes are in great shape. Several resorts are offering some nice early season lift and lodging specials. Take advantage.
Boyne Mountain and Highlands kick off the holiday season with their annual 6 for 1 day at both locations Friday, Dec. 12, which pays homage to America’s first six-seat, high-speed lift, the Mountain Express. Six people ski and ride for the price of one on that day. The cost for one lift ticket is $59.
Both resorts are offering early season lift and lodging packages that include a room for the night, next day lift ticket, breakfast and tubing starting from $125 at the Mountain and $118 at the Highlands. Prices are per person, per night, double occupancy. Play on the slopes Friday with the 6 for 1 special, spend Friday night on a package and enjoy the next day on the slopes as well.
Shanty Creek Resorts is offering early season $25 lift tickets for Schuss Mountain through Dec. 14, and a Value Ski Package starting from $89 per person, per night that includes lodging and a lift ticket.
Crystal Mountain has a deal that requires you to book by Dec. 19. Book a two night lodging only or Unlimited Ski Package and spend a third night free and an extra day on the slopes free. The package is good for selected dates through April 5, 2015.
Caberfae Peaks is offering lift and lodging packages starting from $69 per person, per night that allows you to ski or ride on day of arrival and all the next day. Up to two children, eight and under, can sleep and ski free staying with two paying adults.
