A short twenty minute drive from Lake Bluff Preserve to one of the most popular ski resorts...Crystal Mountain!

Visit Michigan's Top Ski Destination for Skiing, Sledding and Pure Michigan Family Adventure

 

With more than 100 acres of skiable terrain and plenty of amenities, it’s no wonder Crystal Mountain in Michigan is one of the most popular ski resorts in the state. The family-owned resort has been a favorite year-round destination for countless families ever since it opened in 1956, and during the winter, it becomes a top ski destination. 

Crystal Mountain is a wonderful attraction year-round, but during the winter, it’s a top spot to hit the slopes. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a first-timer, Crystal Mountain offers both downhill and cross-country skiing, as well as classes, competitions, and more. 

Skiiers, young and old will enjoy this winter wonderland, that’s for sure. After you’ve enjoyed as much adventure as you can take, warm up by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate or head into one of the restaurants to enjoy a hot meal.

Visit Crystal Mountain’s website for more information, including a full events calendar of all their upcoming holiday events. And don’t forget to give them a follow on Facebook so you can stay up to date on snow reports. 

Address: Crystal Mountain, Weldon Township, MI 49683, USA
