Winter Activities at Crystal Mountain

For a weekly schedule of activities, view our This Week at Crystal flier.

Fat Tire Snow Biking

This winter, enjoy the beauty of northern Michigan on two wheels. Rent one of our Fat tire snow bikes and cruise on the winter bike trails. Fat tires help make snow maneuverable!

Ice Skating and Hockey

Enjoy a few whirls on our ice rink, located at the Outdoor Tennis Courts, across from the Cross-Country Learning Center. Bring your own skates or get rentals. Use of the ice rink is complimentary to houseguests.


Crystal Mountain is surrounded by miles of northern Michigan snowmobile trails. Snowmobilers who are houseguests of Crystal Mountain have direct access to Michigan DNR Trail 391, which leads to a groomed network of Michigan DNR Designated Snowmobile Trails (PDF). There are no on-site snowmobile trails at Crystal Mountain.


Guests are welcome to snowshoe throughout Crystal Mountain's property (except the downhill slopes and cross-country trails) and Michigan Legacy Art Park. Guests are allowed to snowshoe between the Art Park trailhead and the outdoor amphitheatre, with over 20 sculptures viewable.
