It isn’t often you can get something for nothing, but on the weekend of Dec. 14-16, at Treetops Resort in Gaylord, you can ski for free — or learn if you’re a newbie. It’s how they welcome winter in Michigan’s great north and it’s an excellent pre-Christmas destination for friends, family, clubs and other groups to enjoy.
You’ve heard the adage, “What’s old is new again,” referring to trends like bell bottoms and skinny jeans, but what about beverages? Right now, we’re experiencing a veritable explosion in craft beer production and Michigan’s wines have been earning awards for decades. But there’s one libation that’s becoming a real fall favorite: hard cider.
Used to be Michigan was only really known for brewing Stroh’s beer, but those days are long gone now that an explosion of excellent craft breweries has taken place and we now claim names like Bell's and Founders as our own. And even better is the fact these breweries can be found statewide from Marquette in the U.P. to Grand Rapids and Paw Paw, to Detroit to Lansing. When your group wants a fun and safe way to go brewery crawling, there’s no better option than an Indian Trails charter.
