The ski lodge and resort is also hosting a variety of events throughout the season, starting with a trick contest on December 21.

2. Furnaces are working overtime due to cold Michigan winters, and sometimes that means the energy bills start adding up! Consumers Energy has some helpful suggestions to help save some money.

First, look at the thermostat settings, to set the heat at 68 degrees when you're home, then drop it down to 65 degrees while you're away.

Make sure you have a professional inspect your furnace every year to make sure it's running efficiently and replace your filter.

Also check for leaks in your windows and doors.
