Established in 1954 as Sylvan Knob Ski Area, Treetops Resort has since invested decades into expanding its ski hills and lodging options, and building a solid reputation as the premier golf destination in the Midwest. No matter which of our five lodging locations guests choose, they enjoy majestic views of manicured golf courses, wetlands, pristine woodlands, or our ski hill.
