While snowmobiling, downhill skiing, snowboarding, and year-around fishing are Cadillac's best known recreational winter pursuits, winter enthusiasts are not restricted to the formal constraints of most resort areas. Cross-country skiing, treking, snowshoeing, hunting, photographic quests, and camping adventures in this area rival any in the country. During winter we offer over 200 miles of groomed snowmobile trails, 34 downhill ski runs with over 485 feet of vertical drop, over 60 miles of cross country ski and snow shoe trails, and several acres of frozen lakes for ice fishing.
