Nothing about this place was acceptable considering how hyped up its website was. The slopes are mediocre even for Michigan standards. The resort is way too overcrowded and overpriced. Shuttle buses make you feel like cattle. We stayed in a Timber Ridge condo which we thought was owned by the resort but we later found out it was privately owned by a cheap individual who hadn't updated it since new decades ago. We never got passable reception on our tv despite calling maintenance. There are so many better places to stay outside of the resort. We tried to ski but one time up the lift resulted in my jacket being covered in a rubbery oily mess from the wheels overhead. Asked for a rain check and got nothing. Any resort that doesn't offer rain checks or reimbursements due to poor weather or unhappy customers is hiding something. All the good ones do. we paid $110 for 2 minutes of actual skiing. Thanks Shanty Creek, we will never return. There are better places further north. If this resort actually did something, anything, fair to make up for our wasted weekend I probably would not be writing such a negative review.
