To SCR’s staff and community:
Shanty Creek’s roots in Antrim County run deep.

Generations of staff are residents of Bellaire, Mancelona, Central Lake, and beyond. We want everyone to know we are ready to bring them back to work once the State relaxes its “Stay Home, Stay Safe” Order.

We have identified and are excited to begin many projects around the resort's 5,000 acres while still maintaining the CDC’s guidelines for social distancing—after all, the health and safety of our staff (and guests) will continue to be of utmost importance.

We know there are still many weeks before the summer tourism season returns in full swing. Until that time comes, we will be investing in our people and our property. Our foundation is solid and we will survive this.

When our guests return, Shanty Creek will be better than ever.

Another instance of "Humans Being" ...Steve Kershner's daughter Hannah (and her husband Chris) are selling a tee-shirt they designed that supports a local tavern, and 100% of the profit is going to the staff who are out of work.

Hang in there, everyone. Be well.

More good “Humans Being.” Antrim Ski Academy skiers Garrett and Audrey are Schuss Village neighbors, and they collected bottles, cans, and other trash from the Pink Lift and parking lot. We’re grateful to have families like the Eggers pitching in at Shanty Creek.

It’s only been one week since the abrupt, premature close to the ski season, and essentially the Resort. And still we carry on.

In a series we’re calling “Humans Being” we’ll be sharing a handful of positive ways we’re social distancing at Shanty Creek.

Here’s one example:

Shannon from our Conference Services staff and her three kids have been making homemade greeting cards for Bellaire’s elderly who can’t have visitors.

The following is joint message from Jason at GRZ Productions and Shanty Creek Resort.

This isn’t likely to surprise many but it must be said, the health and safety of our collective guests and staff is our primary focus and guides all our decisions in these ever-evolving times:

Due to the number of attendees in tight proximity at the Schuss Mountain Snow Challenge, which increases the possibility of spreading virus, it would be irresponsible to our guests, staff, and the communities in which we live for us to host the 2020 Snow Challenge. Officially the Schuss Mountain Snow Challenge on April 4-5, 2020 is cancelled.

This statement sums up our perspective: “You won’t ever know if what you did helped. That’s the nature of public health. When the best way to save lives is to prevent a disease rather than treat it, success often looks like an overreaction.”

For all lodging guests with reservations at Shanty Creek between April 2-5, we will automatically cancel your reservation and provide a FULL refund. For racers/race teams, GRZ Productions will coordinate all refunds with race teams who pre-registered to participate in the races.

Please be patient with us. It may take several days before we’re able to process all refunds. We thank everyone for their understanding.

Like others in the ski industry, the health and safety of our guests and staff is our primary focus and it guides all our decisions in these ever-evolving times.

Simply put, we believe our ski operations increase the possibility of spreading the virus, and would be irresponsible toward our guests, staff, and the communities in which we live to continue this season.

So in conjunction with the recent executive order from state government officials on restricting large gatherings, we will be closing our ski season effective at the end of the day Sunday, March 15.

For all guests with lodging reservations between March 15 - March 29, we will automatically cancel your reservation and provide a FULL refund.

This statement sums up our perspective: “You won’t ever know if what you did helped. That’s the nature of public health. When the best way to save lives is to prevent a disease rather than treat it, success often looks like an overreaction.”

This is an unprecedented and challenging time. Again, the health and wellbeing of our guests, employees and the communities where we live, work and play is of utmost importance.

We are very appreciative of the overwhelming support from families like yours who enjoy coming together on our slopes and at our resort.

We thank everyone for their understanding during this difficult time.

In an effort to follow the recommendations of state health officials to minimize the spread of illness/COVID-19, we’ve made the difficult decision to cancel this Saturday’s Slush Cup.

At this time, all regular operations of our ski slopes, tubing park, lodging, and dining facilities will continue as usual.

Schuss Mountain at Shanty Creek is committed to providing family-friendly, outdoor recreation by providing a safe, clean environment.

For everyone who loves the fun-in-the-sun festivities of Slush Cup weekend, know this: we are bummed out too. We love this tradition! However we believe this is the proper decision in light of the heightened warnings and advice from health officials.

Thank you for your understanding.
