If you are a skier, you know about this place...but they have a wonderful spa, water park in the summer, hotel, condos, cross country skiing trails, events, restaurants...everything you need for a day trip or long vacation.

Crystal Mountain has ski runs for every level of experience. As is typical for the midwest the runs are fairly short as the mountain is just not that tall. What I like is that the facilities are well maintained and not overcrowded (except for Holiday weekends). We typically stay at the Hamlet which is right next to the lifts. The... More

Both our daughter's took advantage of the Spa package, one on Christmas Eve, the other Christmas Day. The Christmas Eve session was top-drawer in every way; the Christmas Day had an excellent treatment, but was lacking in the full amenities our daughter enjoyed the day before. Left a message with the resort management, and got a call that evening from... More

Crystal works extremely hard to get all their slopes open as soon as they can. The weekend before our arrival there were only a few slopes open and the following weekend most were open. Enjoyed every minute.

We are here now and completely disappointed. For starters our suite we paid over $170 per night had a construction site view. Secondly, staff claimed the Thanksgiving Buffet was full although the lot was half empty. Third, the resort advertises a few dining options, but only one is open the rest are closed for the season. Third, there's nothing to... More

Stayed here in early October as had a coupon for golf and one night of accomodations. The two golf courses were fabulous. The accomodations not so much. Super small room in an older building. Food prices high so drove to Frankfort to eat. Wanted to use the indoor pool but it closed at nine so used it the next morning.... More

Besides a charming atmosphere and scenic beauty, the staff of Crystal Mountain is what deserves our praises. The young man at the desk in the fitness center/pool area on October 29 in the evening, was outstanding...he was so accommodating to the needs of our family and he made us all feel quite at home.
