Even though we still have a few weeks until it’s “officially” winter, there’s no denying that the winter time has made its way to West Michigan. We’re busy shoveling our driveways, getting the kids bundled up before making snowmen, and curling up by the fire with a big mug of hot chocolate with marshmallows! When you put it that way, winter doesn’t sound too bad!


To make the winter time even better, we made our way to Cannonsburg to check out West Michigan’s premier ski and snowboard destination! Whether you’re a first time skier or snowboarder, or have years of experience under your belt, you definitely need to come check out this perfect outdoor space! Make sure to check out their website to stay tuned for their opening date!
