Planning a winter family getaway? This might help



Now is the time to start planning that family winter getaway.

Even if you’re not a skier, you could be. That’s what lessons are for. Plus, some resorts offer a variety of options. For example, Treetops Resort in Gaylord is known for its skiing, snowboarding and tubing.

Treetops also has a new experience called the Magic Carpet.

The Magic Carpet is a simple way to help learners and beginners get up the ski hill. For the advanced skiers, the resort offers a new challenge called “The Glades,” which is a double black diamond hill. You venture through the trees while enjoying the rush.

Barry Owens, General Manager of Treetops Resort, explained what your family-fun experience could look like.

You also have a chance to win a getaway to Treetops, which includes a two-night stay in one standard room, four lift tickets, and a ski lesson for four ticketholders.
