Join us for a day of delicious craft beer on the ski trails! Founders Brewing will bring their hops to the snow at Trapper’s Cabin, where skiers and snow-shoers can try some of Michigan’s most excellent craft beer and enjoy a gourmet barbecue with locally made beer brats.

There will also be dog demos, where the dogs will find missing people (someone hiding in the woods – Airscent Wilderness Dog), and/or find hidden bones (HRD Dog). These demos will take place at 1:00pm and 3:00pm on the sun deck/practice area.
