Open Saturday 2/12 and Sunday 2/13 from 9:00-4:30

We will be open Saturday 2/12 from 9:00am – 4:30pm and through the weekend. Come enjoy the groomed trails! Check in will be at the Ski Shop for the weekend.

Current Trail Conditions

We have spent the first part of this week completely re-furbishing our grooming equipment to match the standard of our new snowmobile. We tested it today and everything is now working great. We groomed today with our better defined “corduroy” surface and set fresh traditional tracks. The trails are fast and slick in some areas and temperatures are warming up so trails are getting soft.

Special thanks to Skip and Sue Stackhouse for making a large number of new trail signs. We are working to get them all up to replace many old or missing signs.

Road Conditions

The mountain road is much improved from last week as much of the ice has completely melted off. However, some parts are still extremely slick due to temperatures dropping overnight. 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.

Mid-day update for Friday 2/11

The trails have softened up due to the warm temperatures this afternoon (currently 46 degrees at 1:46pm). However, the trails are still groomed nicely with a “corduroy” surface and set tracks.

Open Friday 2/11 and through the weekend with excellent conditions

We will be open Friday 2/11 from 9:00am – 4:30pm and through the weekend. Come enjoy the groomed trails! We will be operating out of our camp office today (Laughlin Lodge), so please stop there at the sign in the road to check in upon arrival rather than going straight to the Ski Shop. For the weekend, we will be operating out of the Ski Shop.

Current Trail Conditions

We have spent the first part of this week completely re-furbishing our grooming equipment to match the standard of our new snowmobile. We tested it today and everything is now working great. We are grooming this morning with our better defined “corduory” surface and fresh set traditional tracks. Early skiing should be excellent and may soften up as the temperature rises in the afternoon. We have plenty of good snow on the trails and expect good skiing for the weekend.

Special thanks to Skip and Sue Stackhouse for making a large number of new trail signs. We are working to get them all up as they have been needed to replace many old or missing signs. Now skiers should be able to make it around the Blue Moon trail and not get caught up in the Yo Yo’s.

Despite the warmer temperature swings this week, we have kept a good base, especially since our ski trails are north-facing. With the forecast in flux over the next few weeks, we are continuing to work hard to maintain the best possible ski conditions. Stay tuned for updates.

Current Trail Conditions

The trails are especially fit for experienced skiers and are great for skaters. We had snow showers this morning and then grooming the trails all afternoon, so the trail conditions are even better than earlier this week.  Icy patches on the trails have been broken up by the grooming process, allowing for more traction in those areas. Please note that we’re in the process of determining if we can set some tracks. We’ll provide further updates once we know.
