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.

Crystal Coaster Alpine Slide



The Crystal Coaster Alpine Slide will take your breath away! Ride the Loki Quad chairlift to the top of the mountain, hop on a specially-designed sled, and cruise down one of two parallel 1,700-foot-long curved tracks. You control the speed in this action-packed thrill ride with dips, high-bank turns, and spectacular views. Get your Crystal Coaster tickets at the Mountain Adventure Zone.

For ages 3 & up. Children must be at least 52” to ride solo. Children under 52” ride free on the same sled with a paying adult. Maximum weight for the Alpine Slide is 300 lbs. Parent will need to sign a waiver for riders under 18.
