Crystal Mountain

Among the things for which we are most thankful this November is enough snow to open for skiing and riding (10am-4:30pm) on Thanksgiving Day! In keeping with the spirit of the season, lift tickets will be FREE on opening day (November 22) with rentals at $15 per person.

In the meantime, we’re letting our snowmaking crews maximize efforts on Buck, Cheers to Lou (formerly known as Cheers) and Main street to get as much terrain open as possible.

The downhill trails will be open 9am-4:30pm Friday through Sunday of the holiday weekend (November 23-25) with lift tickets $25 for adults, $15 for juniors (7-17) and seniors (60-79) and free for kids 6 and under. Ski and snowboard rental is $25 for adults and $15 for kids from Friday through Sunday.

Our snowguns have been running since 10pm last night and there’s no sign of stopping today. Plus Mother Nature gave us another 2 inches of snow overnight. Think cold, think snow! ... See MoreSee Less

Winter has arrived in Mi.

I use to love winter when I could ski!

I would have the happiest 4 year old in the entire world if you were open next week. We got an inch of snow in Chicago and she begged to start skiing when we visit for Thanksgiving. Pretty please?! 🤞🏻🙏🏻❄️⛷ Thinking cold!

And thats starting from nothing or u have snow on the ground before hand

Ok Crystal mountain, Caberfae, Boyne and Nubs are open this weekend, let’s here it!

Paula Colburn

I tried to get to the webcam on their site. They just posted that the snow machines were running.

This was only a couple months ago in the same spot!

The ground isn’t frozen.

I have several sets of skis and ski poles if the kids need them

I remember when I was part of this snow making crew! What a great time it was

MeganPerreault and Jim Perreault

Reid Albrecht. Let’s go skiing in northern Michigan. I might be better in my home state.
