what a great weekend! my two teenage daughters & I stayed here for the weekend in the hamlet. room was great size. Our every need was attended to. we were made to feel so welcome. never felt like they were out to make as much off of us as possible or anything. 99% of the runs were open! front and backsides of the mountain. Great rental equipment. A free locker for being a house guest. great food, great service, always with a smile. lots to do for all ages. Ice skating, down hill and x country skiing, snow showing, dog sledding, surrey rides, shops, restaurants, NAStar , etc, etc...parking was good, a variety of lodging choices. Indoor pool and outdoor pool and outdoor hot tub. spa, work out facility, salon, little grocery store...we could have stayed for a week and still had plenty to do

What an excellent experience! We had a group of 12 and played a wonderful round of golf. The refreshment cart came around often and the grounds were beautiful! Everyone had a truly enjoyable time.

Afterwards we ate at The Thistle. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious! I highly recommend doing any of the many activities here. We usually come to ski, but with the fun we had this summer we'll have to start coming for both seasons!

Beautiful campus of well maintained buildings. They have a room (or condo) for any size family or group. Lots to do in all seasons. Near the Lake Michigan shore and all kinds of walking trails. If the big lake does not suit you then they have numerous small inland lakes for swimming and fishing. In the winter you can cross country ski on some of the most beautiful tails anywhere in Michigan.

My wife and I were looking for a last minute reservation for the Labor Day weekend in the Traverse City area and found Crystal Mountain somewhat unintentionally. As such, we didn't have high expectations and were quite pleasantly surprised by how nice it was. The grounds are beautiful, the pool complex very new and nice (especially for kids!), and the two restaurants we ate at were solid and had pleasant outdoor seating available. Lots to do with hiking trails and a mountain biking trail (did these) and also a neat mountain slide and other activities catering more to the teen crowd (didn't do these). The golf course meandered around the mountain (this is a generous term) and looked like a great layout. On the whole, this was a nice resort and not a tired ski resort killing time until the snow season. We'll be back and will bring our kids next time!
