The Highlands of Harbor Springs

600 Highland Drive,
Harbor Springs, MI 49740

Over the years, The Highlands tradition has grown to embrace the winter season like a homecoming.  When winter arrives each year,  they are in their element -- ready to share Michigan's finest skiing and snowboarding with longtime friends - and a steady stream of new ones to the Harbor Springs area.

At The Highlands, winter visitors have access to 55 beautifully groomed and maintained downhill runs, and a wide variety of terrain parks suited to riders and skiers of every ability - all served by a network of lifts designed to make the most of each and every day. And when skiing and riding winds down, the fun continues. With tubing, snowshoeing and a host of other activities available, you'll find more than enough fun to chase away the winter blues.

Didn't stay here. Skied two days...Friday and Saturday. Friday was mid-20s after 3 days in the 40s so the slopes were pretty icy. To their credit only 2 lifts were closed and almost all the slopes were available. There were a couple that we did that should have been closed. Saturday was much better with almost all the slopes groomed and freshly mDe snow. Rented skis only and that was easy with a very friendly staff. Ticket prices are high just like everywhere else. Even on Saturday only the 6 place chair right outside the lodge got really crowded. It was a bit crowded on a fee of the narrower slopes and the ski patrol looked busy. Lodge is fine...way overpriced like all the ski resorts ($9 for a generous soup cup).

This place is AMAZING for skiing. If you’re not looking for a ski trip I would not recommended staying here or traveling to come. The main reason my family and I came was to do fun activities and see highland cows. Google and their website made it seem like the cows were just hanging out and you can go pet them, snuggle, etc. but that is not how it really is. The cows are behind fences, they made a special exception for me to go inside and pet the cows (because we traveled across the state). The activities are NOT very fun and the buildings are really confusing. The only fun activity we did was horse riding, but that’s one day a week (sunday). Zip-lining sounded fun but it was only open a few days a week and it wasn’t open when we were there. But all the people who worked there that we interacted with were incredible and friendly. I would not come back unless I want to ski because their skiing set up is incredible!!!

Our young son got the flu while we were at the Highlands and every single member of the staff stepped up for us in a way that nearly brought my wife and I to tears. They were our village and made sure we had everything we needed to ensure he was OK and that we were taken care of. For example, we had security guards in the middle of the night running us towels, bedding, and cleaning supplies and genuinely, I mean fully from their heart, offering to go into town if we needed anything. This was followed by Lisa, the manager, dropping off a beautiful care package with chicken noodle soup, crackers, ginger ale, and other assorted goodies in the morning and once again, extending the full support of the staff as our son made his recovery. We were already impressed with the room transformations in the lodge and the staff welcome experience (shout out to Morgan at check in and Jeff from Brazil who helped with getting us settled in) but this experience has taken our appreciation and gratitude for Highlands to an entirely different stratosphere. It's truly rare these days to experience a business and its staff leading with so much heart and humanity. Highlands is doing something very right! I truly hope executive management sees this because everyone that stepped us for us from Lisa to the housekeeping crew and to the two security guards at our door multiple times in the middle of the night and offering to go to town (I wish I had caught their names because they were incredible) deserve a huge hug and huge raise! Thank you to Highlands for everything. We are lifers!

I interacted with a lot of the staff -- the ticket booth, equipment rental, the bar, the lift operators, etc. And everyone was so nice -- like they enjoyed the day. And they were very helpful whenever I had any issues. Their new lift is incredible! My friends and I had an amazing time. Strongly recommend.

The enchanted trail is a wonderful experience. The color scheme is amazing. It is a beautiful stroll through the woods. The yurt in the middle of the trail is a great place to rest, and warm up. The yurt serves hot chocolate, alcohol, and s’mores. There is a free shuttle if you don’t want to walk back. Gratuities are appreciated.
