I'm a new snowboarder. I've been to Caberfae 2 times. The first time I tried they're bunny hill. COMPLETELY USELESS. Worst bunny hill I've ever seen. So I went to Crystal and learned. I came back with a bit more skill to go on the green slopes and bought a 4 hour pass. Caberfae's green slopes are VERY narrow. I... More

We have had season passes here for a few years and always come back. It makes skiing affordable for our family. It is not an inexpensive sport, so it's nice that we are still able to enjoy it without totally breaking the bank. The ski runs are fun, and they do add new little trail runs through parts of the...

So they make you book a hotel package at a premium price and in the day of the actual visit they are having $15/$15 specials when I spent $36 on rentals. In my book people staying at the hotel should get special rates and deals not the people showing up last minute. The rooms are gross, especially the comforters from... More

I went to Caberfae once last season and had a nice experience. A couple weekends ago(the last weekend kids were off for xmas break), we visited for the 1st time this year. That Saturday was absolutely packed... easily the busiest day I've ever seen at a Ski resort and as I understand it, the busiest day of the season. Making... More

My son took snowboard lessons for several days. All of the instructors and staff were very friendly, patient, and accomodating. A special thank you to Dylan and Dean. Prices were very reasonable.

caberfae is a no frills family oriented ski resort. I have been to boyne as a comparison. While boyne is probably a bit more polished, thats meaningless to me. The views at cabby over the huron national forest are breathtaking. The value at caberfae is unmatched. A SEASON pass for 99 bucks. Are you SERIOUS? ??? About the only negative... More
