A moment of zen is nice, sure. But a couple days of zen … ? Absolutely essential in midwinter. Crystal Mountain Resort, just west of Traverse City, is at your service. The family-friendly ski resort in the woods recently opened the new 18,500-square foot Crystal Spa—the only LEED-certified spa in Michigan—and it's offering an unbelievable deal:
