Discover the Magic of the Holiday Season
At The Highlands, discover the magic of the holiday season around every corner. As you step into a winter wonderland, you'll be greeted by a world filled with twinkling lights, shimmering ornaments, and beautifully adorned Christmas trees.
Unforgettable Experiences for the Whole Family
Cozy up together and enjoy storytime with Huey. Or get crafty and create little trinkets that you will fondly look at each year and say, "Remember that time at The Highlands?"
And what's Christmas without a visit from Santa himself? Capture the excitement on your children's faces as they meet Santa Claus in person and share their holiday wishes.
You Can't Forget About the Slopes
Start a new winter tradition and hit the slopes to ski or ride open to close! Enjoy the scenic runs, soup and drinks up at North Peak, and hit the rails at the terrain park! You can even have a ski instructor show you all the best runs and spots with a Family Adventure excursion!
Be sure to experience a Highlands' favorite- night skiing! Skiing and riding under the starry sky and lights is a memorable experience!
Soaring through the sky is fun every season, but there is something special about seeing the landscape covered in snow while zipping through the air.
Whether a cozy, romantic outing or a family moment, riding through the woodlands on horseback is a favorite at The Highlands. Or enjoy the solitude of the woods with a snowshoe walk through snow-frosted pines!
Take in the Sights
Twinkling lights, a snowy landscape, and a roaring fire at the end?! Now that is some holiday magic! Enjoy the wonder of the beautifully lit Enchanted Trail and take in the lights dancing off snow-covered trees. End the evening snuggled up with warm drinks by the fire roasting the perfect s'more.
A moonlight experience
Imagine a sleigh ride up the mountain, a cozy bonfire at sunset, and a candlelight dinner. The Aonach Mor Moonlight Dinner is the perfect romantic evening experience to finish the day. Set atop North Peak in a cozy cabin illuminated as a live acoustic guitarist strums your favorite tunes, this experience is unlike any other in northern Michigan.
This holiday season, escape the ordinary and embrace the enchantment of Christmas at The Highlands. With festive decorations, special holiday treats, and an array of unforgettable experiences, our winter destination is the perfect place to celebrate the season.
