Crystal Mountain was so much fun in ‘21 that we’re going again!

Arrival: February 5, 2023 Departure: February 8, 2023

Club 50 will travel to Michigan to ski at Crystal Mountain for our 2023 Midwestern trip. Crystal Mountain hasa 375-foot vertical and 58 runs. We will be staying 3 nights with options for 2 or 3 days of skiing. The resort, in Thompsonville, Michigan, is a 306-mile drive from Chicago, all limited access highway except for the final 37 miles. Participants will be responsible for their own transportation, but the trip leaders will establish a sign-up system for those who want to carpool.

For those who are into alternative winter sports, Crystal Mountain offers 25 kilometers of cross-country trails, with 4 kilometers lighted for night skiing. (Many of Crystal’s downhill runs are lit too!) The trails connect to the Michigan Legacy Art Park which has a 1.6-mile snowshoe trail. Cross-country and snowshoeing gear can be rented at Crystal Mountain.
