When summer heat explodes beyond comfort, it helps to relive memories from a winter ski trip in northern Michigan. A family friendly destination, Cadillac's Caberfae Peaks ski and golf resort utilizes it natural beauty to enhance the ski setting. The resort's four ski lifts soar guests to the 34 available ski runs, and the 485 foot vertical drop presents a decent trip for a lower peninsula skiing experience.

Typically snow is not lacking at Caberfae Peaks due to Lake Michigan's lake effect snowstorms, but the snow machines kick out excellent powder when needed. The north peak features easy and medium level runs, so beginners should head in that direction. This is closest to the lodge, so parents can easily keep warm while watching their teens out the many windows facing the slopes. The south peak targets medium and advanced skiers, offering six black diamond runs.

The lodge itself is currently the largest day lodge in northern Michigan, providing much more than just skiing. A large, two-story stone fireplace warms guests as they sit in large, wooden Adirondack chairs, and a snack bar upstairs serves hot foods upon order as well as beverages and cold snacks. In addition, the resort boasts a full service rental shop for skis, boots, and snowboards. Finally, guests can stay overnight at the adjacent hotel and soak in the outdoor pool and hot tub.

Ski season will return soon. Summer's heat will not last forever. Enjoy the photos from the accompanying slide show to see more features of Caberfae Peaks and to cool off from the summer heat, at least mentally.
