It began as a class project. Benzonia High School Principal and Geography Teacher, Ward Creech asked his students to find the best location in the county for a ski area. In 1956, a group of community members built a warming hut, fashioned a rope tow from a pick-up truck engine and opened Buck Hills. Now celebrating 60 years, Crystal Mountain is among the Midwest’s premier year-round resort destinations recognized nationally by publications like Parents magazine and Conde Nast Traveler. This mountain community has undergone $100 million of development over the last two decades including a current $11 million expansion to the Inn at the Mountain with hotel rooms and suites, lobby bar, specialty market and rooftop terrace set to open summer 2017.
