We will be open Wednesday 2/9 from 9:00am – 4:30pm. We will be open every day from with the same hours through the weekend as conditions allow. The high forecasted for tomorrow is 42, so the trails will likely get soft midday. Temperature highs are also supposed to reach above freezing most days this week, so it is unclear if we will lose any more snow or how the temps will effect trail conditions for the week. Stay tuned for updates. We will likely be operating out of our main office, so please stop there (at the sign in the road) to check in upon arrival.
Currently the trails are 1/2 inch of groomed powder on top of 4″ of frozen granular. Beginner skiers are saying the trails feel icy, and experienced skiers are saying the conditions are fast but great. The trails are especially good for skaters. No tracks are currently set. A lot of the debris has been cleaned up, though there is still some on the trails.
The mountain road is slick in some places due to the freezing rain. We strongly recommend that guests have snow tires and/or chains to make it up the mountain. 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.
