Crystal Mountain Resort, Day 2

After a thoroughly relaxing night and finally getting to fulfill my ski resort dreams we woke up the next morning to . . .

Snow! A huge storm passed through that night and blanketed the entire resort in a thick layer of powder.

I threw on multiple layers of, well, everything, grabbed the wolf and rushed out into the snow.

Being part husky, Lupin loves the snow.

When I first brought him home, he was scared of everything – especially being outside. That is, until it snowed. The first day after a big snowfall, he ran out in the courtyard and settled himself on a snow mound like he was a king and refused to move.

That being said, he’s the perfect opponent for a snowball fight which I’m always game for.

With numb toes and wet heads, we piled into the car for the drive home.

The storm brought snow to the northern part of Michigan, it also brought ice to the middle, making it a long, stressful ride home.

While some of us sat, white knuckling our seats every time the car fishtailed and skidded, others of us slept the entire way.

Whether you’re a skier or not, I can’t recommend Crystal Mountain enough! It is the cozy ski resort of my dreams and everyone we met was so friendly and kind. It’s the perfect weekend retreat to go, relax and escape your day to day stress.
