Crystal River Outfitters Recreational District offers winter rental equipment.  You can rent fat tire bikes, cross country skis, and snowshoes.

There are so many seasonal roads and hiking trails to discover throughout Leelanau and within the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore.  So there’s no reason not to!  Most are accessible by snowshoe.  Find your Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore maps here!

One location that is a favorite with locals and visitors is the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail that offers nearly 22 miles of trails.  Most of the trail is groomed during the winter  with a corduroy base for skate skiing, snowshoeing with classic tracks on the outside for cross-country skiing.

Discover one of the newest ways to bike — via fat tire bike. Our fat tire bike rentals make it easy to enjoy the area during not only the heart of winter, but also the fringe seasons as well!

We are happy to offer the availability of Ski Waxing. Turnaround time is typically 24 hours Monday-Friday.

Looking for a way to warm up after your winter adventure?  

Our outdoor igloos at M22 Glen Arbor are the perfect spot to sip some wine with friends! Igloos are limited to 6 guests and sanitized between groups. Guests can walk-in or reserve the igloo in advance by calling 231.334.4425.
