    53 runs featuring terrain for all abilities, Shanty Creek provides fun for your soul!

    Just about an hour north of Traverse City in the village of Bellaire lies Schuss Mountain at Shanty Creek Resorts!

    The mountain offers 53 runs with several base areas. The terrain is applicable for any type of skier, whether you are a beginner or a more advanced rider. We spent the majority of our time lapping the red chair in the trees, while taking a few runs through the terrain park on the purple chair, and a few steep runs just below the blue and yellow chairs.

    What's fun about these smaller mountains in the Midwest, is that in a days time you can cover most if not all of the mountain - making visiting places like this such a treat. We had timed our visit perfectly as the fresh snow had been falling all morning and into our day, giving us a few inches to push around.

    Both Schuss Mountain Village and Cedar River Village offer lift access to the mountain with free parking.
