We may have been closed these last few days but it doesn't mean we slowed down one bit. Our groomers have been busy pushing a fun three jump line down Canyon, along with our other two terrain parks and 100% trail coverage across the hill we are shaping up for a great closing weekend! ...

Crystal Mountain to open for skiing and riding (10am-4:30pm) on Thanksgiving Day!

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 again 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.

It appears that Crystal Mountain is the only ski area not opening this weekend 🙁

Have to say that I’m disappointed that you’re not open this weekend. Caberfae is 45 mins away and they are open, judging from past experiences at Crystal you probably don’t have enough trained staff.

Will tubing be ope Thanksgiving weekend?

Schuss Mountain to open on Friday and Saturday, November 23 and 24, 2018

This early winter blast has everyone stoked… and our snow makers have been crushing it. The guns have been and will be fired up at every opportunity. And we are excited to announce a Thanksgiving weekend opening day once again this year!

On Friday and Saturday, November 23 and 24, Schuss Mountain will be open 9am – 4:30pm where the Purple Lift and Magic Carpet will be running with at least 6-7 runs. Early season lift tickets are $39 and $29. Discounted lift tickets can be purchased online at ShantyCreek.com.

After opening day, stick around for Warren Miller’s “The Face of Winter” movie party at Ivan’s. Doors open at 7pm. Sponsored by Short’s Brewing Company.

And on Saturday, Antrim Ski Academy will be hosting the annual ski swap in the Grand Ballroom of the Lakeview Hotel. Along with the Gingerbread House Workshop and multiple Turkeyday options and the Brewski Bash, it’s sure to be a great Thanksgiving Weekend.

Traverse City Tourism has launched their winter season's promotions, and it's nice to see Schuss Mountain, the Monster Park, and the fireplace inside The Lodge at Cedar River make cameo appearances.

Winter up north is pretty great, indeed.
