Highlands had a nice halfpipe last season, both highlands and mountain had nice kickers too if that's your thing.

Here is a map I made of the Michigan resorts, you can see where they are and some general information about them.

I could be wrong but while Highlands is farther north, I think it's closer to off resort nightlife. Petoskey is within 15-20 minutes of the resort and I've enjoyed a good pub or two there.

Dave was right about Crystal having a nice resort feel and good restaurants despite the small size but I'm not sure about the off site offerings in/around Thompsonville.

If you're just sticking to the resort then I know Boyne Mountain has the rep of being a party atmosphere. I just don't know that first hand.

If it were me choosing, I'd go Highlands.
