Northern Michigan: Commended for boasting Michigan tourism, Caberfae Peaks Ski and Golf Resort was the recipient of the first annual "Recreation Excellence Award" at the Cadillac Area Visitor Bureau's annual meeting.

In 1937, Caberfae Peaks was transformed from cattle ground to ski run. By the 1950's, Caberfae was know as the Midwest's ski capital and to this day, it boasts two of the best peaks in the Midwest. Since 1982, a hard year for ski resorts with over 250 closures in communities across the nation, the Meyer Family has successfully dedicated themselves to maintaining Caberfae as a renowned ski and golf resort.

Jim Neff was honored to present the award to Pete, Alli, Tim and Mandy Meyer, who accepted on behalf of the Caberfae team. "This is a great honor. When we see multiple generations coming out to ski together, that is truly why we work hard every day at Caberfae. It’s a great family sport and a sport we love," said Pete Meyer.

Over 70 tourism leaders attended the Cadillac Area Visitors Bureau annual meeting. Other presentations included recognition of area volunteers that have helped in the office at the Bureau, and the multiple organization in the area that commit hundreds of hours of volunteer time to provide grooming, maintenance and general support to ensure our recreational attractions are available year-round. The meeting also highlighted the many accomplishments of the Bureau over the last 14 months with the leadership of its new Executive Director, Joy VanDrie.
