Few activities showcase the beauty of northern Michigan quite like cross country skiing. Shanty Creek's 30+km of groomed, track-set trails crisscross the three villages of the resort to create a “village-to-village” experience.
New for 2018-2019: Across our three-village groomed trail system, our crew have excavated extensively to widen our trails to nearly 20ft to allow for side-by-side track-set trails plus plenty of space for groomed skate skiing too.
To make the expanded trails project a reality, a Prinoth Bombadier MP will create the wider, double track-set trails in 2018/19 and beyond.
A big change for 2018/19 season will be 100% new rental equipment from Rossignol including skis, ski boots.
For guests wanting Nordic ski and snowshoe adventures, the Nordic Center will now be located in Schuss Village where the Schuss Mountain golf course’s Pro Shop is during the non-ski season.
This location provides out-the-door access to easier, flatter trails, while still able to connect to the more challenging trails leading to our Cedar River and Summit villages.
