Crystal Mountain

We cleaned out the closet at Crystal Spa and found some supplies to donate to keep our community safe and healthy. Our friends at Benzie Bus collected and delivered it to Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital in Frankfort, Mich.

19 boxes of gloves (100 count box)
3 gallons of citrus II hospital grade cleaner
2 jugs of hand sanitizers
2 disinfectant spray cleaners
1 container of Clorox wipes

Every little bit helps. We’re all in this together.

Stay home. Stay safe.

MARCH 21 UPDATE

A message from our COO, John Melcher:

The past several weeks have presented all of us with concerns never before seen. In this environment, staying connected with information is more important than ever.

After careful consideration and out of abundance of caution and safety for our staff and our guests, we will be closing our resort operations, including all lodging, on Sunday.

While we cannot underestimate the extreme fluidity of our situation, our goal is to resume normal operations of the resort on Monday, April 13.

We don’t know when the coronavirus will be contained and normalcy restored. But when that times comes, please be assured we will be here for you and our community.

We continue to share the same belief as many of you – that spending time outdoors and enjoying nature is important to leading a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle. And that is why Michigan Legacy Art Park remains open for exploring. (Please keep social distancing and all COVID-19 safety practices in mind while enjoying the outdoors, as recommended by the CDC.)

We are also working on preparing our golf courses for this summer. We will let you know when we are ready!

I have great confidence in our team here at Crystal Mountain. We’ve weathered storms in the past and we'll get through this one, too. We’re all in this together.

Be safe and be well.

Sincerely,
John Melcher
Chief Operating Officer
