My husband and I went here for a last ski weekend getaway. I was really excited to stay at a ski resort. It was our first time. I was happy with price we got on such short notice. The lady on the phone was very helpful and friendly. Once arriving I was disappointed. The resort needs an update. For starters... More

Shanna M: Thank you for visiting our resort. I am glad to hear that you "enjoyed yourself very much" and thought that the mountain, the snow and the day lodger were all great. I am sorry that you had a negative experience in our hotel. It is an older building without an elevator, and we continue to make improvements to... More

We've taken a group here annually for about 15 years. Missy, who works in group sales, is fantastic! This is a great place to bring beginners and intermediate skiers. It's not huge but offers several options of hill size. They also have a great area to bring you own food and be able to plug in, like crock pots. There... More

One has to take into account the size of the hill. This is no Aspen! But it is a nice family friendly hill with some fun runs for intermediate and beginner skiers.

RockinRamas: Thank you for skiing with us and I am glad that you enjoyed our slopes and our staff. Yes, we definitely don't have mountains like the Rockies. However, our hills are considered quite large, relative to other Michigan ski resorts. We hope to see you again sliding on our slopes. More

I go to Caberfae a couple of times a year. There is pretty good skiing for intermediate level skiers although I spend all of my time on the South Peak if it's open.

This place has the best value around. The skiing is decent but far and away the best bang for the buck. I am an average skier and always enjoy my visits.

I'm a new snowboarder. I've been to Caberfae 2 times. The first time I tried they're bunny hill. COMPLETELY USELESS. Worst bunny hill I've ever seen. So I went to Crystal and learned. I came back with a bit more skill to go on the green slopes and bought a 4 hour pass. Caberfae's green slopes are VERY narrow. I... More

We have had season passes here for a few years and always come back. It makes skiing affordable for our family. It is not an inexpensive sport, so it's nice that we are still able to enjoy it without totally breaking the bank. The ski runs are fun, and they do add new little trail runs through parts of the...

So they make you book a hotel package at a premium price and in the day of the actual visit they are having $15/$15 specials when I spent $36 on rentals. In my book people staying at the hotel should get special rates and deals not the people showing up last minute. The rooms are gross, especially the comforters from... More
