We came here on Presidents' Day with our school. It was awesome. $15 all day lift ticket and rental for a holiday? Oh yeah. It was a little busy but at that price, we can afford to wait a little. The lift at north peak moved pretty fast and the conditions were near perfect.

We have been skiing at Caberfae for about 10 years, we have been weekend season pass holders for the last 6 years. The $99 weekend season pass is a great deal.

Chris I - Thank you for purchasing season passes for the past 6 years. We sure do appreciate your support and your kind words. You are correct, the $99 Weekend Pass is by far the best deal in the Midwest and we are looking forward to installing a brand new Doppelmayr chairlift for the 2016-17 ski and snowboard season. More

Just went to Caberfae to ski for a couple of days. As a season pass holder, I really appreciate the how they have situated the Blackmer Day Lodge. They have added additional picnic tables, a lot of cubies to store your gear, and extra outlets for slow-cookers.There is now a rule that tables cannot be saved when your party isn't... More

Ordered tickets online the night before and saved some money. Kids first trip to Caberfae, it has been almost 30 years since I have been. It was a really nice day, nice staff, very friendly.

This no frills operation has some of the best terrain in Northern Michigan. The vertical on both peaks is continuous with little runout. One of the few places in Michigan where a skier's legs can burn a bit. The lift tickets are cheap and this place is family friendly. The only place I have ever seen picnic baskets and crock... More

It was a busy day at the peaks. The staff was nice and friendly. I went up a chairlift with an employee and I got a little history lesson of the slopes I thought was kinda cool. The food was great like always. Fun times on the slopes. 🎿
