At Crystal Mountain in Thompsonville, meetings are more than just meetings. Yes, it’s an exceptional place to talk serious business. But it's what you can enjoy after your agenda is complete that sets this place apart. No matter the season, there are plenty of great ways to spend your quality time at Crystal Mountain.

CRYSTAL BEAUTY

Meeting locations don’t get much more scenic than northern Michigan, and Crystal Mountain is one of the area’s most beautiful spots. This four-season resort provides plenty of activities, including exceptional skiing and two highly rated championship golf courses. And within a short drive, there’s even more to see and do, courtesy of Mother Nature – most notably, some of the most beautiful coastline in the world along Lake Michigan.

CRYSTAL CENTER

With plenty of well-appointed meeting rooms, flexible seating, and excellent audiovisual presentation systems, the Crystal Center can comfortably accommodate up to 300 people (and it’s accessible and ADA compliant). Break-out meetings can be indoors or outdoors, within the charming Crystal Mountain village or at the Michigan Legacy Art Park amphitheater surrounded by towering pine trees. Work can be stressful, but Crystal Mountain never is. 

CRYSTAL ACCOMMODATIONS

More than 250 room options – suites, condos, hotel rooms, townhomes and resort residences – are available at Crystal Mountain. And whether your accommodations are perched alongside a ski slope or in the heart of the village, members of your group (and their family and friends, if lucky enough to attend) will never be more than a few steps away from work, play or pure relaxation.

CRYSTAL UNIQUE

For meetings, Crystal Mountain offers group activities you won’t find at many other venues: 

  • Private chairlift rides
  • Private Alpine slide rides 
  • Mountain-top cocktail receptions
  • Outdoor dining venues
  • Campfires
  • Horse-drawn surrey rides through the village 

We’d love to add one or more of these to your meeting’s schedule of events.

Is celebrating Michigan Wine Month a work activity? Absolutely, especially when you’re checking out wine-centric venues for possible future events. Traverse City Uncorked is offering a mobile-exclusive pass to a collection of curated wineries offering deals and discounts to redeem during Michigan Wine Month—also known as May!

 

A conference or convention venue might be described by meeting planners as offering ease and convenience for multiple reasons. It may be because its address is easily accessible from numerous compass points. Or perhaps it’s the destination—with a variety of opportunities for activities and entertainment close-by. And of course, it could be that the venue itself offers a peaceful, easy setting with all the comforts you could want. 

Well, at Treetops Resort, it’s all of the above. 

 

Michigan’s university and college towns earn more than a passing grade when it comes to the venues and amenities they offer for meetings and conferences. 

Go Spartans! Go Wildcats! Go Broncos! Go Blue! 

Michigan has plenty to cheer about when it comes to campus life. According to Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education, the Great Lakes State ranks among the top 15 states in the country for the most post-high school institutions. Some 93 colleges and universities call Michigan home, with many of these schools operating multiple campuses.
