from a news release of M-Live, "Women's Winter Tour: Charity, chocolate and good nature at Crystal Mountain Resort, by Andrea Tamboer, Nov 10, 2008
Women, chocolate, and a charitable cause all add up to a fun weekend in northern Michigan. It's always held on Super Bowl weekend; this season that's Jan 30- Feb 1, 2009.
Crystal Mountain Ski Resorts hosts this annual event where the men serve the ladies who take to the cross-country ski trails. Over the years the plans have grown to include snowshoe tours, chocolate-making classes, spa treatments, a film festival, wine tastings, skiing discounts, a dance and the cross country event. New this year is an activity called First Tracks, which gives participants the chance to downhill ski on Crystal's back slopes for an hour on Sunday for a nominal fee before the slopes open to the public for the day.
You could be skiing along a trail when suddenly a man might pop from the woods and offer you a chocolate chip cookie!
The event has grown to become one of the largest women's winter events in the country, with 800-1000 ladies participating. Over its ten years it has raised more than $150,000 for women's shelters and domestic abuse charities over the years.
"Just remember the three Cs: community, charity and chocolate," advised event organizer, Kaye Krapohl.
