Crystal Mountain was named one of Parents Magazine’s Ten Best Snow Resorts for Families as well as OnTheSnow Visitor’s Choice Award Winner of Best Terrain in the Midwest for 2013. Whether you’re an avid skier, seasoned snowboarder, or simply a snow enthusiast, Crystal Mountain has plenty of pristine terrain on which to offer an unforgettable Michigan winter experience. Ski and ride our 50 downhill slopes. Gracefully glide across 30 kilometers of groomed cross-country trails. Snowshoe over 80 acres of wooded valleys while capturing breathtaking overlooks around every bend. The choice is yours. Our Mountain, is yours. With what may be the best ski school in the Midwest and runs for every level skier at each lift, Crystal also has great offerings off-slope with surrey rides, snowshoe trails, a Paintball Biathlon course, and Winter Snow Bikes.
Some highlights of what is new this year at Crystal Mountain:
* We are excited to reach 50 slopes for the 2014-15 season with the opening of two new runs: Last Call and Jester’s Alley.
* If you rent a board at Crystal Mountain this winter it will likely be from industry leader and legend Jake Burton. The resort has swapped out nearly its entire fleet of rental boards with those from Burton but that’s only the beginning of this partnership.
* Crystal Mountain will be one of only six resorts in the Midwest designated as a Burton Learn-to-Ride Center. These group lessons offer small student-to-teacher ratios with personal attention and combine it with the latest Burton snowboards, boots and bindings specifically designed to help riders progress.
