No, this isn’t linked to the Pure Michigan campaign, but aesthetically, it is coming from a similar place. 

Throughout 2016, we’ll be showcasing travel hot spots and scenic views from the land we call home because frankly, whether you’ve seen or been to Sleeping Bear Dunes 100 times, there’s always a new way to see it — a new angle, a new season, a new perspective, a new light. 

Caberfae Peaks Ski & Golf Resort in Cadillac boasts 34 ski runs and 485 feet of vertical drop, making for some of the steepest terrain in the state. If the slopes aren’t your thing, Caberfae is also home to the largest day lodge in northern Michigan, complete with cafeteria, pub, and a two-story stone fireplace to keep things cozy on biting January days.
