A North Michigan winter is like no other. On a rise above the Betsie Valley, and a short trip away from massive Lake Michigan, is Crystal Mountain, a favorite among Midwest skiers and riders. Crystal is a family-owned and operated ski resort and they work hard to keep guests coming back.

Trails and a small stream meander through the village, while the Scottish-themed Kinlochen Lodge looms over the golf course and ski runs. Snowboarders are welcome everywhere on the mountain and there are special terrain features that keep it fun whether you're sliding on one board or two.
