Winter Activities at and around Evergreen Resort

Experience the beauty of a Northern Michigan Winter.

Evergreen is not only a warm weather destination.  We thrive throughout the year thanks to our geographic location within the heart of Michigan along one of the Lake Michigan snow belts producing in excess of 100″ of snow each winter. With that, Evergreen Resort features 5km of groomed trails right onsite and we work in close partnership with Caberfae Peaks and various snowmobile rental locations throughout the area.  You are sure to find something to do in the winter when staying with us.

Access to onsite ski trails and snowshoe trails are always free of charge.

Snowmobiling

The Cadillac area is one of the best places for snowmobiling in Michigan, with miles of great trails. From Evergreen Resort you have direct access to hundreds of miles of snowmobile trails. The White Pine Trail, which extends all the way to Grand Rapids, is just a quick zip through our parking lot. We can help you rent a snowmobile.

Sled/Trail Permits Required

The Department of Natural Resources requires all sleds to have a Michigan Snowmobile Trail Permit. Permits are $48 each and are good for the winter season. Permits may be purchased upon arrival at Evergreen Resort.

Snowmobile rental and instruction is available from M&M Rentals.  They have over 65 snowmobiles for daily and weekend rentals delivered right to our property.  They also offer children’s snowmobiles.  Call Eric direct at 231-577-8915 to secure your sled today.
