SKIING & SNOWBOARDING

AT CRYSTAL MOUNTAIN

What started as a community ski hill in 1956 with a single rope tow powered by an old pick-up truck engine, is now a four-season resort featuring 59 downhill runs, three terrain parks, six chairlifts and two magic carpets. Downhill skiers and riders enjoy more than 100 acres of skiable terrain and 375 feet of vertical.
 

For more than ten years, Crystal Mountain has been nationally recognized by the likes of Condé Nast Traveler, Outside, and U.S. News & World Report as one of the best ski resorts in the country.
 

Located just 28-miles southwest of Traverse City, Michigan and a short drive from Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Crystal Mountain is the ideal base camp for your next winter adventure.
 

LIFT TICKETS & RENTALS

Save time, money and avoid the ticket line by purchasing lift tickets and rentals in advance online.
 

Our Tickets & Rental office is located in the lower level of the Crystal Center. It opens at 8:30am daily and closes 30 minutes after the lifts stop running. Don't forget, kids ages 6 and under and adults ages 80 and over ski free anytime!

Trails, trails, trails!

With thousands of miles of trails throughout the state, Michigan offers a winter wonderland of picturesque scenery and distinct features. These are trail systems that vary in terrain and level of difficulty – from wide, groomed pathways to more natural, narrow lanes – allowing everyone to get in on the fun.

Even after 100 years...
only two traffic lights
exist on 116.7 miles of
paved roadway.

M22 IS AN ICONIC HIGHWAY that was formed in 1919 from a collection of shorter roadways that became connected under the authority of the state's department of transportation.
 

The scenic M22 starts in Manistee and heads north to Frankfort continuing up the shoreline of Lake Michigan. It continues north through Glen Arbor and Leland looping south at Northport and ends in Traverse City. The 116-mile highway is that roadway that connects and unearths a remarkable lifestyle. 

The debate among locals is whether or not there are one
or two traffic lights along the M22 highway. We'll leave that
for further discussion!
