Downhill Skiing The Homestead Resort in Glen Arbor Bay Mountain at The Homestead offers a great family skiing experience. There are 15 runs and the Resort also offers a ski schools, several restaurants and a great kids program. They operate on weekends only (also the whole Christmas holiday week).
Cross-Country Skiing & Snowshoeing Leelanau County has miles of public trails both in and out of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. The Park offers guided snowshoe hikes on Saturdays and also a couple days over the holidays - details here.
Our featured trail is the Good Harbor Bay Trail in the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore. It's a trail that's not too long and doesn't have a lot of hills, making it a great one for novices and/or kids! You can view the trail map right here and download a computer background taken last winter where the trail nears the lake from our Backgrounds page 2 (right at the top).
