Last weekend for Easter my husband and I took advantage of a previously purchased deal through travelzoo. For only $300 we got to venture to Thompsonville, Michigan to the Crystal Mountain resort where we stayed for 2 nights and got to snowboard one last time at the end of the season.
I hear that they have similar deals come summer for the golf season and we’ll definitely keep our eyes open after having a good experience. The resort had great customer service, various restaurant options and Jacuzzi tubs in each room – a plus for those with aching feet after a day of snowboarding or skiing. The trails vary from beginner to black diamond, however my husband was a bit bored having to linger on the beginner/intermediate trails with my novice self.
Even if you’re not into the winter sports the resort features a great spa (a little high priced for my liking), workout facility with free classes and tons of kid friendly/family activities. We especially enjoyed the free Wi-Fi, beautiful layout and Twisted Thistle Pub & Grill where we got to indulge in the Scottish twisted thistle ale.
