Michaywe – Gaylord

According to the Otsego Chamber of Commerce 50th Anniversary History: the AuSable Ski Ranch was reopened as Michaywe Resort.

Today, Michaywe is a resort communty with golf, tennis, swimming pool and many other amenities on the banks of the North Branch of the AuSable River. Their X-C ski trails map shows the location of the “old ski slopes.” I think the tows stopped operating following the 2001 season.

Today there is a preform tube geocache hidden at the top of the old ski hill.

    This is another of the great small areas active in the early 80’s where my wife and girls learned to ski. I think this was their first chairlift and the first they could ride alone as it was low to the ground. Used to do half days that were great on the budget and disposition. On icy days we would do some bush wackin on the back side. Great fun.
