Schuss Mountain at Shanty Creek

Mancelona, MI

Sprawling across 5,000 acres of Pure Michigan, Schuss Mountain at Shanty Creek combines the most lake effect snow in Michigan’s lower peninsula with steep terrain, and long, gentle cruisers to attract skiers and boarders of all ages and abilities.

The Monster Park, sponsored by Monster Energy, mixes jump lines with rails and boxes, and incorporates an all-glades section with all-natural park features. Across the resort, Schuss’ little sister slope—Summit Mountain—provides guests with another unique winter experience overlooking Lake Bellaire. For something a little different, play in the six-lane alpine tubing park, let the kids go dogsledding, or traverse 28km of groomed Nordic trails by snowshoe, fat tire bike, or cross country skis.

For an après-ski experience others will envy, a complimentary shuttle to/from downtown Bellaire features the award-winning Short’s Brewpub, along with a wine bar, a craft distillery, a cider house, and multiple dining locations. Bring it on home for late-night live music slopeside at Ivan’s.
