So I've decided to write another review because we have been many times and have stayed at many different locations. We've stayed at (from most expensive to least expensive) Mountain top (sleeps 10), Cottages (sleeps 6-9), Kinlochen(sleeps up to 8), Inn at the Mountain (sleeps 4), and Hamlet(sleeps 4). My favorite by far are the cottages. We love #315, Cattail....

We love Crystal Mountain. The slopes are long enough for for kids. The lifts are easy to get on and off. They take good care of the mountain. The village is fun. The outdoor grill (weekends) is fun and indoors it's easy to get food and find a table. I do wish there was more outdoor seating on warm days.

My family and I visited Crystal Mtn this past weekend and had a great time! We stayed at a condo across from the slopes that was ideal for our family of four. The slopes were icy due to the heat but we got some snow each day that helped tremendously. None of the runs are very long but we didn't...

Spent 1/2 day on the slopes which was plenty for a new skier that came along. Not a lot of green (easy) runs, but great blue and black runs. Well groomed runs. The place gets better and better. I have great memories coming here as a kid with the family and now creating memories with my kids.

Crystal mountain has great lodging choices. We stayed in the Wintergreen town-homes for three nights. (2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen and livingroom). A bit pricey but we love the beauty of northern michigan and Crystal Mountain is a wonderful place to experience Michigan's winters.

Dad relaxing in the clipper - pounding out work next to the awesome fire, and four teenagers enjoying the slopes. Peaceful knowing the awesome staff at Crystal has their safety and enjoyment at heart. The resort delivers the value and experience - we have lasting memories with family and friends at Crystal. Kids loved the expanded runs.

This place is perfect for a winter family getaway. We stayed at The Colony. The room was a studio with a full kitchen. Plenty room for a family of four. Everything was clean, which is very important to us. The hotel is very close to the lifts. The kids enjoyed the pool at the spa.

We took our two young boys and infant to Crystal Mountain Resort in July 2016. This was a great trip! Our boys ask to go back all of the time. There are so many activities for the kids, they don't ever get bored! There is a pool that is pretty crowded with little kids but that is what this place...
