Mountain Activities

So much to do, and so much fun doing all of it! Crystal Mountain is northern Michigan’s spot for summer and fall fun! Fly down the mountain on the Crystal Coaster – Michigan’s one and only Alpine Slide. Get out and active with a mountain bike ride, nature hike or a leisurely float in a kayak down one of our nearby crystal clear rivers. Lastly, be sure not to miss the beauty and culture at the Michigan Legacy Art Park.
