I don't know about their park. I've not progressed to park riding yet, so I'm pretty clueless in that department.

Cab's park was lacking but I was only there one time very late in the season, still, I didn't see much in the way of park area. Crystal's is OK. Kind of not laid out the way I'd like to see it, there's no "flow" for any of their park areas and they all funnel you in to the high-traffic area of the Clipper Quad chair in front of the lodge. Boyne & Otsego & Shanty I think have better parks but I have not been to Shanty in a few years.

But I still really enjoy Crystal so that didn't stop me from getting my season pass, which BTW are on sale for $269 unlimited through October 1st.

Because Crystal has something better than the places I've been (nubs, pk, holly, boyne, alpine, schuss), natural features. Much rather be doing that stuff.

But I digress... I need to learn park because that's what's by me when a 4 hour drive to Crystal isn't.

We're planning on hitting Crystal when we're not snagging cheapo $9 lift tix at Caberfae this season. Apparently it's only an extra 15-20 mins drive.

Lansing. One one hand it sucks to have no local hills but on the flip, the up north places are closer.

Yeah Caberfae is like 15-20 mins West of Cadillac, but if you keep going on 115 North instead of taking that left turn at Burger King, Crystal Mountain is about 30 mins away.

And just down the road from Crystal mountain is a gem of a pub called Crystal Palace. Cheap hometown priced booze and a shuffleboard for some drunken fun and a friendly local named "Spoon Steve" who will happily play the spoons for you.

BTW guys that Burger King there BLOOOOWS! I've been there at least once every year (just too lazy to stop somewhere else and don't care for Mickey D's too much) and its like a 20 minute wait for your food every single time! But on a good note they give you a free pie because of the wait, and I like pie lol
We normally stop there at night on the way home round 10-11ish, hit it up for some free pies after shredding all day if you don't mind the wait for some sub-par burgers

When you guys do Crystal, what hotel do you use?

As snowboarders, it is our duty to accept free pies even if there's a 20 min wait. Hell, we wait that long to get on a lift sometimes around here.

By the way, when it comes to fast food in Michigan, a Double Whopper is A-OK with me.
