The Special Olympics participant in this video really shows the spirit of the event!!

This video was shot at Shanty Creek Resort in Bellaire, Michigan.

Shanty Creek is hosting part of the winter Special Olympics this week, including the cross country ski events.

This morning, hundreds of participants competed on the beautiful cross country trails inside Schuss Mountain, a village within Shanty Creek Resort.

In addition, hundreds of family, friends and volunteers timed them, helped with their equipment, and cheered for them.

It was a beautiful day at a beautiful resort, which is such a great place to vacation and retire!

There are lots of great real estate deals in the area. Northern Michigan real estate is doing very well, but is still very affordable.
