Cadillac Area Trail Report – 02/28

CADILLAC AREA UPDATE via Coyote Crossing Resort​ – 2/28

Pete’s Trail Report from this morning, with pics taken of Trail 37 from groomer on Tuesday (before the fresh 2”) …

Hello- Only about 2" of Lake Effect has fallen here at Coyote, but more to the north. People are out riding and reports are varying greatly, depending on where they rode. I would recommend staying north of M55 in general. Trail 37 just north of M55 is plowed down because of logging operation, but it gets drastically better when you get up to the Coyote Express (aka-373). Trails are pretty good, but hard packed around Lost Pines, Boon and Mesick areas. Still tough getting in and around Cadillac, but things improve northward. Would probably avoid our RR grades, but interior trails are still quite good. Long range temps don’t look good, so better get out and ride some…carbides are made every day. RIDE RIGHT! Pete

Really enjoyed the pizza & wing special tonight! The Greek salad was great also!

Can you order off the regular menu too?

Caberfae Peaks

Sunday, March 15th, will be our final day of the 2019/2020 ski season. The forecast is calling for blue skies and a high of 39 tomorrow. Lifts will be open from 9 am to 4 pm. The Caberfae Gold Cup Race is on. We hope you can join us for one final day on the slopes.

What's behind this decision?
With Executive Order 2020-5 coming out yesterday from Governor Whitmer, along with increasing concerns of the Corona Virus, and the uncertainty of future border crossings with the upcoming Canada Week, we feel it is in the best interest of our guests, employees and community to close the ski area for the season at the end of the day on Sunday, March 15th.

This decision was not an easy one. It especially saddens us to close with this much snow on the hills and reservations on the books. However, we feel it is the proper and most responsible course of action at this time. Be safe, stay healthy, and we'll be back better than ever for winter 2020/2021!

We sadly could not cross border. They were turning people away unless essential travel. We bought a pass for the week for 4 people. Will you guys refund it...OR...when you are open next year can we use them then.

Thanks so much for staying open today even tho the carnival was cancelled. I traveled 4 hours from ohio and had an awesome time today!

I am bummed... with the kids off of school, I was seriously thinking of bringing them up this coming week. I would have thought, with most activities outside and people spread out from each other (i.e. ‘on the slopes’), it would be great activity 🤷🏻‍♀️😔

Had a great time yesterday! Thanks for staying open...... It was a beautiful day 😏

It was fun today, and will be fun tomorrow. Totally understand the predicament you have been dealt. Let's hope the US rebounds quickly! See you fall 2020!

What a great ski season! We’ll see you in December!

We had a fun time today. Thanks for a great season Cabby staff.

People just need to respect these businesses decisions. This IS their livelihood, they wouldn’t do it unless they were reasonably compelled to do so. It’s rough but stay home, work out at home, bunker down for a couple of weeks. We will make it! They’re just trying to protect us.

Thank You for staying open yesterday - & Thank God the power didn’t stay out for long!!!! 😅- 😇🙏😇 - We had one of the Best Times!!!! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️ - See you in 2021!!!! There was Such Happiness & Joy & Love in the Air with everyone - It was really Beautiful.

Last fire this morning!! Come one ,come y'all!! Let's make the best of it,and have a stellar ,fun day!!! Thanks everyone for the season!! Will see you next year!! Thank you Meyer family,for working so hard and providing such a great place to work!!!

Thanks to Tim Meyer and Pete Meyer for the great season. The staff at Caberfae from top to bottom is absolutely the best

Awful. - season pass holder. Was planning on going a few times next week.

It was a great season! Looking forward to next already ❤️

Thank you for everything you do to make skiing a fun experience there! See you next season!

We had a lot of great times up there this year you guys did a phenomenal job I respect your decision thank you for being a good Community citizen we will be back in 2020 2021 for sure

We were coming next weekend but I guess we'll have to wait until next year. Had a great season!

Cant wait till spring summer golf season and prayin the the madness is overto play the cadillac area courses and then the 20/21 ski season !

Any chance weekday passes will be honored on Sunday?

Great riding with the whole crew this year. Lifties rocked it all year. Thanks Pete, Tim and crew for another great season! See y’all next year.

Thanks Caberfae & all the staff for being there to make our seasons very enjoyable, my family and myself have had so many great times there. See you all next year.

Was so looking forward to this week, you received so much snow over the winter, it was going to be a great time!

Had a great ski season there! Thank you!

Thanks for a nice season. It was wonderful to ski and race at your resort. Till next season!

We had a fun season! We will be back next year..thanks Caberfae!

Should do a guests day then Last day free lift tickets 🤗

Caberfae Peaks

After careful consideration, we have elected to cancel the Spring Carnival events tomorrow due to the heightening awareness of COVID-19. We feel this decision is consistent with keeping the safety of our guests, employees and community as a top priority. This decision was not made lightly. By eliminating the events, we feel it will minimize the likelihood of groups in close proximity and encourage safe, social distancing throughout the resort.

All other normal resort operations will continue as previously scheduled. We plan on lifts operating daily through March 22nd.

What day is your official closing day? Will you be open the last weekend in March (28th and 29th) since it’s spring break?

I plan on Skiing Sunday!!! W/My Family, Please be Open!!!

100% the right decision to make.

At least it's close to the end of season... Fresh air & sunshine actually fight sickness & viruses!! I'll be snowshoeing, Hiking & ATV'g after Sunday 🌞🌞🌞

Tough call but great for skiers. Nubs Nob closed for the season effective today.

Glad you are staying open. Fresh air, sunshine, and exercise are the best way to stay healthy.

The heck with that. I'm wearing my kilt anyway.

Very sad decision! You are outside in cold temps! I give up!

But regular skiing is still open to the public...? Why cancel it then?

Is your last day march 15th or March 22nd. I'm getting confused because the posting very clearly States March 22nd is the last day.

Any word on the Super G race scheduled for Sunday?

You guys are awesome thank you for making the right decision we are a caberfae Peaks family

Closing at the end of the day on Sunday! Last chance for tracks!

The Slopes are Safe! Stay outdoors. We’re skiing tomorrow ⛷

Wasn’t planning on going anyway but that’s a dumb decision.

Wow!
