Trail Conditions 2/17

OPEN today, Thursday Feb 17 from 9am – 12pm

We had a great day of skiing yesterday on the upper trails, which were in great condition. In the late afternoon, our groomers were able to touch up the lower trails to get them ready for this morning. Warmer temps today will soften up what had been slick earlier in the week. Come up and enjoy the trails!

Please note that we will only be open for the first part of the day today!

UPDATE: Open Thursday 2/17 9:00am-12:00pm, then closed for the remainder of the day due to rain. Stay tuned for updates for the weekend.

The temperature is supposed to stay above freezing overnight tonight, so all trails will be soft in the morning, but we will groom to ensure the best possible conditions. Find our forecast here for hourly weather predictions here: https://www.wunderground.com/hourly/KPAHILLS3/date/2022-02-17

A special shout out to our trail groomers for working hard this past week to keep the upper trails in great shape for skiing! Many skiers were grateful for the opportunity to still be able to ski. Thank you!

Open with half day rates all day Wednesday 2/16! Closed Thursday 2/17 – stay tuned for weekend updates.

We will be open 9:00am – 4:30pm Wednesday 2/16 for skiing and snowshoeing (on snowshoe trails only). We are unsure how long we will be able to keep the current snow, so come up to enjoy skiing on the beautiful trails while you can! Please stop at our camp office to check in (at the sign in the road), rather than driving through to the Ski Shop.

We will be closed on Thursday 2/17 due to forecasted rain. Stay tuned for updates after Thursday.

Current Trail Conditions

Currently skiing on the upper trails only (Pitchpine, Laurel, Blue Moon, Big Fern, Little Fern, North Star, South Ridge). We have been out grooming this morning and the conditions on the upper trails should progress quickly from good to great! All trails will soften up due to warm temperatures on Wednesday, so there is a possibility the lower trails would be skiable later today.

Road Conditions

The mountain road is much improved from last week as much of the ice has melted off. Our part of the road is cindered. However, some sections of both roads are still very slick. We strongly recommend that guests have snow tires and/or chains to make it up the mountain, in addition to 4WD or AWD. Crystal Lake is not responsible for assisting anyone who gets stuck. The best option is to call non-emergency police for assistance, or Shrewsbury township for plow help: (570) 584-3079.

Midday update for Tuesday 2/15

The upper trails are faster than expected today but still skiable.
 
Trails are expected to soften up tomorrow, but we are unsure at this point if the lower trails will soften up enough to be skiable tomorrow. Stay tuned for updates!

Current Trail Conditions

The lower trails have hardened are very slick and fast, but the upper trails have kept more snow and are skiable but fast. On Wednesday 2/16, the trails will likely soften up due to warm temperatures. We are unsure how long we will be able to keep the current snow, so come up to enjoy skiing while you can! We will continue to groom to ensure the best possible trail conditions.
