Overview

The "instantly charming" Crystal Mountain resort is "the kind of high-touch resort experience more commonly found out West," praises Chicago Magazine. Most recognize this resort as a winter ski destination, but Travelzoo members will find an all-season destination in Northern Michigan with plenty to do, even if you're not a skier. 

The resort features over 240 hotel rooms, suites, condos, townhomes and resort residences, all against the backdrop of beautiful Northern Michigan. Nearly all feature complimentary Wi-Fi. Select units are pet-friendly, and kids under 6 eat breakfast for free with a paying adult. 

Once at the resort, there's more than enough to keep everyone entertained. First and foremost is the skiing, praised by Onthesnow.com as one of the best ski resorts in the Midwest. 58 downhill slopes fed by chair lifts offer runs for green-dot beginners to seasoned black-diamond downhillers. Nonskiiers have options as well -- horse-drawn surrey rides are available on select dates, as are snowshoe trails, ice hockey, snowmobile tours and fat-tire snow biking.

Warmer seasons don't slow down the on-site activities. Kids love the Alpine Slide, a sort of warm-weather bobsled ride; tennis courts, disc golf, a climbing wall, outdoor pool, paintball and laser tag courses and a high-ropes adventure course are all on site. Golfers can choose between two GolfAdvisor-praised courses -- both the Mountain Course and Betsie Course earn 4-star ratings. 

Multiple dining and drinking options are available throughout the resort. The full-service spa offers Swedish massage, aromatherapy baths, body wraps and nail services along with amenities like heated floors, steam rooms and infrared saunas and an outdoor garden with hot tub. The resort town of Traverse City is under an hour away, and the idyllic Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park is even closer, but with so much on hand, you may not need to leave at all.
