Crystal Mountain is a four season, family oriented resort that offers great downhill and cross-country skiing along with a terrain park for winter activities. There are two 18 hole golf courses, a water park with climbing wall, alpine slide, and bike/walking trails available in the summer. Also visit the Michigan Legacy Art Park, a sculpture park that 'combines an experience of art, nature and history'. Year round you can enjoy the spa and fitness center with indoor pool, along with resort restaurants.
Off the complex you can enjoy fishing/hunting, canoeing/kayaking, snowmobiling, wine tasting at the local wineries, or shopping and dining in the many quaint towns. Frankfort and the Lake Michigan shoreline are only 20 minutes away, or you could reach Traverse City for the Cherry Festival, or the Sleeping Bear National Lakeshore in less than an hour. There is plenty to do here, but if you prefer, the quiet and laid back atmosphere of the area will help you to just sit back, unwind and relax during your vacation. Whatever you choose to do, we are sure you will enjoy your stay at Abbey Road.
