New cross country ski trail connects 3 Leelanau County wineries this winter. As of January 3rd, 2014, fine wine and snow lovers can begin a gorgeous Northern Michigan ski at either Blustone (Lake Leelanau), Forty-Five North (Lake Leelanau) or Tandem Ciders (Suttons Bay). From the first stop to the last, you’ll work up your thirst along the cross winery ski trail. Trail-goers will be happy to know that the 7.5 mile stretch is groomed in its majority with only 2 road crosses en route. Otherwise, the trail winds around beautiful snow-covered vineyards and countryside.

This cross winery ski trail is free for use with ski and snowshoe rental available at Suttons Bay Bikes at 118 N. Saint Mary’s, Suttons Bay, Michigan. 231.421.6815
