Shanty Creek

  Good ski hill, I go there a lot with my buddies. There are a lot of other ski hills around here but we keep going back to this one, the other ones are good too we just feel home at this one I suppose. Says Brian.

Shanty Creek has an ok selection of trails and a reasonable total of lifts. No other ski mountain for 21 miles has a more sky-scraping drop from top to bottom. There's 400 acres of ski terrain, and it's all in wonderful condition. Shanty Creek
    has an average part of black and red slopes and an average proportion of blue and green trails. The yearly snowfall is roughly average at this ski mountain. There's a trailmap of Shanty Creek on this page for your reference. There
are 10 ski lifts here, and they are enjoyable to catch a ride with. This ski mountain has 49 ski trails that you could ski on; it's a great array. The 450 foot drop is unsurprisingly not that much to boast about, but Shanty Creek has so many other magnificent features. Shanty Creek is a great ski hill having a roughly average drop when you compare it to other ski mountains in the region. Getting a little good exercise and a chance to spend some time in the  
wilderness outclasses anything. You get many skiers going up here from Cadillac on snow-white weekends. This ski mountain receives so much ice cold snow, 17 feet annually, and that is a fantastically magnificent depth. The wintertime months in Michigan is so picturesque for skiing or snowboarding. This ski hill has a tremendous diversity of trails; it's impossible to get bored here. If you'll be sleeping in a hotel, you're in luck, hotels are available in the neighborhood of the base zone, and if you make reservations prior to departure, you're all set. The snowboarding and the skiing in this part of the country is a great thing to do during the season.

Special features: Halfpipe and 3 terrain parks, tubing park, lessons and clinics for all ages
