Autumn has arrived and Michigan's gorgeous fall colors are on display. You can check them out from up high with a chairlift ride at Crystal Mountain Resort.

Experience miles of colorful treetops and panoramic views of three counties on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays in October.

Happy Fall Color Friday! Peak colors are just beginning to pop. A stunning weekend is ahead so be sure to view the colors while they last. 🍁

Crystal Mountain says times vary by day, so be sure to check their website for details.

You'll be asked to wear a mask while waiting in line and while on the chairlift and to only share a chairlift with members of your family.

Tickets are $5 per person and free for kids 8 and under.

There's also a cash bar at the top of the mountain!

From what I'm seeing on Facebook, it's definitely a good idea to get there early to make sure you get a chance to ride!

John Melcher, chief operating officer for the resort said in a release,

“Autumn in northern Michigan is truly breathtaking and there’s no better way to see the fall colors than from soaring in a Crystal Mountain chairlift ride where you’re right in the middle of it all.”
