Breathtaking Fall Colors from Above during Shanty Creek’s Scenic Chairlift Rides

As the annual fall color show starts in Northern Michigan Shanty Creek Resort is pleased to announce the return of a unique, and socially distanced, way to experience the color change…from above the tree line.

Visitors will enjoy the fresh, crisp fall air and spectacular 360 degree views of the kaleidoscope of color from Shanty Creek’s blue chairlift high atop Schuss Mountain. Scenic Chairlift Rides are available the first three Saturdays of October (October 3, 10, and 17) from 11am-4pm. Tickets, available online, are $25, and include the entire chair, up to four guests, for the scenic ride. Chairlift rides will take place rain or shine, and will only be cancelled in the event of severe weather.
