A Magnificent March to Season's End
UPDATE: The safety of our guests, our employees and our community is our No. 1 priority. So while normal ski operations will continue at Crystal Mountain, the resort will scale back its March at the Mountain weekend activities out of an abundance of caution and in accordance with Gov. Whitmer’s guidance of limiting activities for 100 people.
The decision to cancel activities like Slush Cup, Cardboard Classic, Kayak on the Snow Race and our slopeside concerts in March was not made lightly. But in doing so, the resort is minimizing the chance of groups of 100 people or more from gathering in close proximity to one another while encouraging safe, social distancing throughout the property.

While winter is truly magical in northern Michigan, the month of March can find even the hardiest of souls searching for a little something extra to push on through until spring. For those of you who want to spice things up a bit in the final month of the season, Crystal Mountain has a jam packed calendar of events that you can plug into and hit play!
Speaking of spicing things up, we're planning a southern-style BBQ and authentic low-country boil for everyone to enjoy during our Mardi Gras on the Mountain celebration. Don't miss the opportunity to don your favorite Krewe-inspired Mardi Gras costume when you hit the slopes for the weekend. You might just win the annual costume contest! There is a DJ party behind the lodge for those of you who want to swap out your ski boots for dancing shoes.
Tap your family's collective creative genius by reserving your spot in the Cardboard Sled Building Workshop (March 13) and then enter your creation in the Cardboard Classic! This race is a real crowd pleaser and a hoot for the race crew too.If you possess both speed and courage on skis or a snowboard, the annual Slush Cup competition is for you. It is a schuss down Buck to gain the necessary speed to turn those downhillers into water skis as racers attempt to traverse a specially prepared pond at the foot of the mountain. Registration is required, sanity is not. Don't forget to continue the fun in the slopeside tent at the end of the day for a dance party.
Is St. Patrick's Day on Saturday this year? It should be. So, dress in green and join in for a Saturday of thrilling downhill kayak races. Just because one Slush Cup is never enough, round two of the most anticipated spring contest will be thrilling spectators and chilling racers again this weekend. Following the racing action you can help the Leprechauans tap into green beer and enjoy live slopeside music and dancing.
Dust off those bobby socks and poodle skirts, pull on the beatnik black turtleneck and beret, don the Elvis wig and shades, be bell-bottomed and bandanna'd, do the moon walk in Moonboots, unleash the neon leg warmers and tease out that big hair! Do whatever it is you used to do in those straight skis and Vuarnet specs! You can even impersonate your younger self in the slopeside Rubik's Cube Contest.
