Caberfae Peaks Ski Community Highlights
Caberfae Peaks was one of the first ski resorts in the United States, debuting in January 1938. The resort began with a Civilian Conservation Corps-built chalet and a single ski trail known as "Number One." A Ford Model A vehicle engine powered the first rope tow. Over the next five years, a dozen more trails were built, as well as several rope tows. It shuttered after the 1942-43 season and did not reopen until after WWII was over.
Caberfae was Michigan's largest winter sports area by the mid-1950s, thanks to a ten-year head start on Boyne Mountain. Thousands of skiers flocked to the area on a daily basis thanks to regularly scheduled "snow trains," which drew crowds of up to 4000 people. In 1957, a snowmaking system was constructed.
Throughout the 1960s, the resort continued to expand, adding routes and lifts to bring the total to 35 trails served by 20 lifts. However, insufficient snowfall during the vacation seasons of 1965 and 1966 produced financial difficulties for the resort, and it was sold to a private corporation in 1967. It had previously been run as a non-profit.
Throughout the 1970s, the resort struggled financially. In 1980, new owners began developing the resort, bringing in fill material to increase the North Peak's summit and open the South Peak. The South Peak opened in 1983, while the North Peak addition, which increased the vertical drop to 485', was finished in 1992. Meanwhile, most of the rope tows were removed and many of the routes established in the 1950s and 1960s were abandoned.
Caberfae Peaks has some of the state's highest vertical drops, as well as an even mix of terrain for skiers and snowboarders of all abilities, with the bulk of trails catered to the beginner and intermediate skiers and snowboarders.
Possibly one of Michigan's greatest value resorts. Caberfae always has a nice offer to be found, from a family fun day on Sundays to women's day and college night. Prices for tickets and rentals vary according to the time of year, so check with the resort before making your plans.
The Blackmer Lodge, with its huge day lodge, is a great spot to warm up and grab a bite to eat while taking a break from the slopes. Caberfae hosts events every year, including the Rail Jam and Pizza Slam series, which travels to five other Michigan ski destinations.
