Located in the northern half of Michigan's lower peninsula, Treetops Resort is a fantastic place for family and friends to converge for a weekend of fun, food, and plenty of skiing. With a fantastic setup and plenty of ski runs, Treetops Resort has something to offer the entire family.
In my childhood, my entire extended family met at the resort once each year for several years on end. Meeting at Treetops Resort is one of my favorite childhood memories, and I am glad that I am able to continue that tradition today with my own immediate family.

Unique Features of Treetops Resort
Treetops Resort is certainly geared toward skiers and snowboarders during the winter months, but there are plenty of activities available even if you don't enjoy the downhill rush. There are several cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails around the property. In addition, Treetops offers options for those who wish to go dog-sledding or tubing.
Skiing and Snowboarding Lessons
Just because you don't know how to ski when you arrive doesn't mean you have to miss out on all the downhill fun. Treetops Resort offers skiing and snowboarding lessons for students of all ability levels, beginning with those who have never been on skis before and ranging to those who just want to brush up on their skills. Sign up for ski lessons in the hut at the bottom of the hill. Prices will vary.
