Treetops Winter Getaway on Live in the D

Has the time change and generally cold weather got you down? Perhaps you are longing for a vacation the whole family can enjoy, without breaking the bank.

Well before you hop on a plane to go somewhere tropical, you should consider embracing the winter and enjoying a snow-filled all-inclusive resort. We’re talking unlimited skiing and snowboarding, extreme tubing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, skating, ski lessons, and more! We spoke to the experts at Treetops Resort in Gaylord, less than a 4-hour drive away, to see why you should consider a winter getaway.

1) Better Deals

Lots of people like to head somewhere warm in the winter, so heading somewhere covered in snow could end up saving you a lot of money. Right now, for example, you can get an all-inclusive ski vacation at Treetops Resort for the price of a lift ticket. Starting at $139 per adult, you get a ski or snowboard lesson, free equipment rentals, a lift ticket, lodgings for a night, dinner, and breakfast.

2) Look for freebies

Winter is the slow season for travel, so resorts are looking for ways to entice people to come. For example, along with that ski vacation, you also get unlimited extreme tubing for your stay there as well, completely free.

3) Smaller crowds

If your idea of relaxing means you are far away from everyone, then winter is the time to travel! Resorts and hotels are often not as booked up as in the warm summer months.

4) Activities for the whole family

There is a lot of fun to be had in the winter - you can ski, snowboard, tube, snowshoe, cross-country ski, and ice skate. At Treetops, you can even dog sled! Not all activities have to be outdoors too, there are always indoor pools, and relaxing spa days to be had as well.

5) Learn something new

Never tried skiing before? have you always wanted to snowboard but didn’t know how? You can always take a lesson to learn how to do these fun winter sports. A lesson comes free with Treetops’ special deal.
