Caberfae Ski Club News


It’s spring 2021 survey time.  Our last survey identified several opportunities for improvement within the club.  The majority of respondents chose “kitchen remodeling” as number one.  With “kitchen remodeling” being a broad stroke we would like to hear from you as to which improvements you would support.  Please share any thoughts and possible solutions.


 * Please keep in mind that some of the improvements would cost very little while others could affect the club’s discretionary fund (money spent on items which are not necessary but useful)


*When answering please keep in mind that the club is essentially used for three months with an estimated 56 hours of peak time use.  Peak time being Saturdays and Christmas week, 11am-2pm.


* An email address is required only to prevent multiple submissions.  No survey data will  be associated or published with personal data.

Get ready to pump up those bike tires for the Lake Cadillac Bike Ride and Picnic on Saturday, July 3th.  The Lake Cadillac Bike Ride gets underway at 10 a.m. at the Rotary Pavilion (Band Shell) on the shores of Lake Cadillac in downtown Cadillac.  The ride around Lake Cadillac is about seven miles.  For those who wish to pedal the figure eight and go around Lake Mitchell, plan an additional 13 miles to your excursion.


Following the bike ride there will be plenty of time to rest-up before the picnic at the Caberfae Ski Club.


Picnic begins at 5:30 pm in the afternoon with beverages and swapping lies.  Please bring your own beverage, place settings, and lawn chairs.  In this COVID world we need to figure out how to do a picnic. Folks who love pouring over government regulations are working on the food challenges. One thing is for sure, the Senior Grill Team promises to not interfere with the culinary arts.


The bike ride and picnic are being coordinated by two generations of the Demek family.  If you’re planning to attend, please RSVP to Sandy Demek at. (734) 591-0586, or email her at:   



This ski season was the most unusual winters in history.  COVID-19 brought us unprecedented challenges to keeping our club open and safe.  But out of the gloom and doom came some bright spots. With the support of all of our members, we were able to avoid any health incidents at the club.  We were able to keep some normalcy and even add some new opportunities that will serve us into future seasons.


A big shout out to the house committee.  The group worked hard to bring us the socially distanced outdoor area complete with dining tables, Adirondack chairs, heaters and a fire pit.  Also, a big thanks to Sue and her crew for making adjustments throughout the season to bring us food and drinks, indoor and out. 


While the ski season has ended, the club’s board and committees are already gearing up for the next season. Keep your eye out for a survey coming soon to help chart the future of our dining and kitchen services.  As you may recall, last year a survey determined that these services were high on the list of projects to be addressed.  Now we need to know what you would like to see from any potential changes.


Keep your eye on the website, too.  Soon, the project committee will be posting a multi-year project plan.  This will include a budget for discretionary and nondiscretionary investments that we anticipate in the coming years.


And yes, we will have a Spring Work Bee on May 1, 2021.  Just like last fall, this will be an organized event with limited capacity and social distancing required.  Paul Waug has his list of tasks laid out and ready for members to sign up.  If you plan to help out, please email Paul to sign up:


Again, thanks to each of you for helping give the Caberfae Ski Club a COVID-safe year.
