Snowshoeing is permitted on all Crystal Mountain property except the downhill slopes and cross-country trails. Michigan Legacy Art Park  is also a beautiful snowshoe destination. Guests are welcome to snowshoe throughout the Art Park until the upper trails are groomed for cross-country skiing. Once trails are groomed, guest are allowed to snowshoe between the Art Park trailhead and the outdoor amphitheater, with over 20 sculptures viewable.


  • Parent or guardian will need to sign a waiver for participants under the age of 18.
  • Be prepared to snowshoe. Your rental begins when payment is complete. Dress in layers, as snowshoeing is an excellent workout! We recommend moisture wicking layers under athletic wear.
  • Wear appropriate footwear. Snowshoes work best for boots with a rubber sole. Fashion style boots may have difficulty keeping snowshoes from slipping. Tennis shoes or hiking boots will get wet. Ski and snowboard boots will not fit in a snowshoe.
