With sunny skies returning to the Pacific Northwest after weeks of rain, SkiZer felt like taking a mental health day in the mountains.
It was a quick trip to Crystal Mountain for day 3 of the season. The weather was great, and it gave SkiZer the chance to see Crystal’s new $5 million snowmaking system in action.
Clearly it’s working. Coverage is sketchy at most Northwest resorts after torrential rains washed away the snowpack at Thanksgiving. But the lower slopes at Crystal are covered and looking good.
As for the day, it was fun. Much of the mountain was closed as Crystal waits for more snow. But what was open was skiing very well, and SkiZer’s mental health has been successfully restored.
Day 3: Crystal Mountain
