Crystal Mountain is one of the Midwest's finest four-season family resort. No matter what time of year you visit, you'll be glad you did. Here's just five reasons why:

Crystal Mountain Resort

1. Snow Sports

With 50 downhill slopes, 18 miles of cross country skiing trails and 80 acres of valleys to explore on snowshoes, one weekend simply isn't enough to do it all at Crystal Mountain. From seasoned experts to new beginners, they'll get you pointed in the right direction and send you home with an unforgettable experience.

2. Endless Winter Fun

Even if skiing or snowshoeing just isn't you, they still have plenty to offer. Have you ever wanted to try dog sledding? You can at Crystal Mountain. Glide around the ice rink, take a horse-drawn surrey ride, go for a spin on a snowmobile or try your hand at ice fishing.

3. Summer Activities

Just because the snow melts doesn't mean the fun stops. They have Michigan's only alpine slide, giving you the opportunity to dash down the mountain without the skis. They also have a swimming pool, tennis courts, laser tag, disc golf, paintball, campfires, climbing walls, mountain bikes and so much more.

4. Golf

Crystal Mountain has two golf courses on site, as well as over a dozen championship courses within easy driving distance. The two distinctly different courses have both received a 4-star rating from Golf Digest. Mountain Ridge golf course winds you up to some of the highest elevations on site, giving you breathtaking alpine vistas to take in along with your game. Betsie Valley is a more challenging course, ready to take on even the most experienced golfer.

5. Crystal Spa

Crystal Spa has earned LEED-Silver certification for their commitment to renewing the earth, and they're just as committed to renewing you. Enjoy a Swedish massage, aromatherapy, body wrap, manicure and pedicure, just to name a few of their offered services.
