Video: Experience a Family Ski Resort at The Homestead in Glen Arbor

Catch the fun of Michigan skiing at The Homestead in Glen Arbor, a Michigan resort offering downhill ski slopes that are perfect for families with skiers of all ages and abilities. Whether it is downhill slopes, nordic trails, terrain parks or ski lessons you’re looking for, the Homestead offers it all with gorgeous vistas of Lake Michigan as a backdrop. Check out the "Magic Carpet," a carpeted conveyor belt that beginning skiers stand on to get to the top of the beginner hill, doing away with the challenges beginners can find with other kinds of lifts.

AAA Living magazine said of skiing at The Homestead: "…reasonably priced lift tickets, a sales policy assuring uncrowded runs, luxurious lodging, a private club-like atmosphere, all with an eye toward the environment may make many weekend skiers wonder why they would want to go anywhere else."

The Homestead is nestled in the heart of the Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, offering year-round lodging and activities with Lake Michigan and views of the Manitou Islands at your doorstep. Lodging options include a resort hotel, a boutique hotel, an all-suite option and The Inn, an historic structure on the Lake Michigan waterfront. Privately-owned resort condominiums and homes are also available, many of which are slope-side.
