Activities

Exciting discoveries happen every day, every hour as you explore Resort activities and the many attractions of the Grand Traverse region.

Winter Activities


The fun doesn’t stop when the temperatures drop. The Resort’s Clubhouse transforms into a Winter Activities Center that’s open to guests and the public every weekend. Guests can enjoy ice-skating, explore groomed trails on cross-country skis or trek through fresh powder on snowshoes. Bring your own gear, or find Winter Snow Sports Rentals at the Clubhouse or Adventure North in the Resort’s Gallery of Shops.

Once you’re ready to come in from the cold, you can warm up in the Winter Activities Center. Here families can purchase s’mores supplies for the bonfire, enjoy hot chocolate and adult beverages, play board games or savor favorite comfort foods off The Grille’s winter-themed menu.

Water Activities


From ‘big air” rides to rentals that can be pedaled, paddled and pulled full-throttle, there are lots of ways to play in East Grand Traverse Bay. For pure convenience, Blue Sky Rentals at the Beach Club has watersport rentals right on the bay.

Those looking to quench a greater thirst for adventure may find it in a parasail ride, toggling your way over some of the most beautiful topography the Midwest has to offer. Perhaps the surge through the crystal-clean bay on a kiteboard may better match that free spirit with the tug of excitement.
