Crystal Mountain – NEW! Winter Familypalooza & Mountain Games – January 11-13

Crystal Mountain’s furry and lovable mascots, the Snow Monsters, are inviting their mascot friends – including Sparty from Michigan State University and Mr. Cherry, mascot of the Traverse City North Stars hockey team, to name a few – to join families for a weekend of fun activities and friendly competition. The Saturday festivities begin with an opening ceremony parade featuring mascots and families marching through the village core. Throughout the day, mascots will cheer on the families as they take part in on- and off-slope events, earning points for participation and performance. The marquee event will likely be the Mountain Mascot Games as mascots go head-to-head in a series of crazy challenges.

Crystal is offering a special package for the Winter Familypalooza that includes two nights’ lodging, lift tickets, Sunday breakfast, family pizza party, Mascot Games registration, and gift bag. Book online or call (800) 968-7686 ext. 5100.
