Picturing yourself in West Michigan has never been easier, with the West Michigan Live Camera Gallery from the West Michigan Tourist Association (WMTA). Whether you’re planning a vacation and want to preview fall color conditions at your destination, or want to travel around the state without leaving home, you’ll find live feeds of what’s happening right now across the West Michigan area.
WMTA is excited to announce a new live camera stream in their online gallery, this one from Shanty Creek Resort (SCR), located in Bellaire. The live stream may be found here: https://www.wmta.org/live-west-michigan-camera-gallery/shanty-creek-resort-schuss-mountain-west-michigan-live-camera/
Shanty Creek Resort has installed this live camera at the top of Schuss Mountain, overlooking their beautiful property. The installation of this live camera in mid-October allows individuals to see the changing fall colors of Northern Michigan in real time. This is the first of four new web cams that SCR will unveil in the next six months.
Shanty Creek is conveniently located among the chain of lakes region, just 31 miles northeast of Traverse City. The resort has four distinct villages spanning 5,500 acres: Summit, Schuss, Hawk’s Eye, and Cedar River, with lodging, dining, golf, downhill skiing, and cross country trails. The resort has also been named Best Wintertime Venue, Best Michigan Golf Resort, and Best Service by the readers of Michigan Meetings + Events.
Visitors can enjoy both Schuss Mountain and Summit Mountain’s two-mountain experience in the winter, with 53 downhill slopes, five terrain parks, 30km of cross country trails, and a multi-lane alpine tubing park. In spring and summer, golf packages are available for guests to play on five award-winning championship golf courses including Arnold Palmer’s The Legend, Tom Weiskopf’s highly-decorated Cedar River GC, the acclaimed Schuss Mountain golf course, the original Summit course, and its newest addition: Hawk’s Eye GC.
“This is a truly stunning time of year for Shanty Creek’s live camera to launch,” says Dan Sippel, executive director of the West Michigan Tourist Association. “You can already see the beautiful fall colors that the camera picks up from its vantage point at the top of Schuss Mountain, and the view will continue to evolve as fall colors deepen, and eventually give way to the first snowfalls of the season.”
Camera feeds will continue to be added to the gallery moving forward, expanding the available views of the West Michigan area. Current camera feeds range from Mackinac Island to downtown Grand Rapids to Drummond Island, and beyond.
