Whether you’ve grown up here, lived here, or just visited, you know that Michigan summers are hard to beat. The drawn out days, warm air and opportunities for adventure are endless – especially Up North.
That’s why we’ve decided to make a list of the best Michigan ski resorts to visit in the off season. Here they are:
If you’re looking for all around summer fun, Treetops Resort is a no-brainer. Located in Gaylord, Michigan, Treetops is just a hop, skip and a jump away from the Au Sable River. A perfect destination for canoe and kayak adventures. They offer a variety of trips that range from 2.5 hours to overnight camping. As you paddle make sure you keep your ears and eyes open for wildlife and other encounters.
If canoeing and kayaking aren’t quite for you, don’t worry – Treetops also offers an abundance of other activities for you to enjoy, like guided fly fishing excursions. Northern Michigan is home to some of the best Blue Ribbon trout streams in the region, and with the Pigeon River and Sturgeon River flowing right through the resort, Treetops puts you in the perfect position to fish some of these legendary waters.
Treetops is also known for its golf. They have 5 courses that accommodate every skill level, from beginners looking to casually hit the course – to pros, looking to test their skills. The resort also offers golf lessons, golf clinics, golf packages and more.
