Super swank: Clustered in a sparkling hilltop village overlooking the Betsie Valley, Crystal Mountain’s luxurious Mountaintop Townhomes are the ultimate in ski-in/ski-out lodging (think: jet tub and fireplace). 800-968-7686.
Super spare: Hardy powder fiends can bring a tent and winter camp at the base of Mt. Bohemia for just $20 per night. If you don’t mind mingling, the same price will score you a bed in the mountain’s hostel. Yurts (pictured) sleep 10, $185 per night. 906-289-4105.
