This winter, during one of the biggest ski weekends in recent years, our dedicated trail grooming snowmobile decided to take "early retirement"! We will need to replace it before next winter so we can keep being Northeast Pennsylvania's best destination for cross-country skiing.
Help us reach our goal of $25,000 by donating to our Snowmobile Fund. And remember - pray for snow!
The Crystal Lake Ski & Outdoor Center has been a home for outdoor enthusiasts for decades. Operated by a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, we depend on your gifts to keep our gates open.
Join our Adopt-A-Trail program by setting up a recurring gift—a great way to support our long-term sustainability.
Replacement rental boots: $800
Replacement rental skis: $1,500
Brush hog machine: $4,000

Grant award project from FCFP
The Crystal Lake Ski and Outdoor Center (CLSOC) is grateful to have received a generous grant award from the First Community Foundation Partnership of Pennsylvania (FCFP) for $12,000. With these funds, the CLSOC will be able to expand our outreach to the community through marketing and advertising, attendance at community events, and growing our Skis to Schools program, as well as improve the check-in process for our guests to maximize the fun time spent outdoors.
With the generous support of FCFP, the Crystal Lake Ski and Outdoor Center is ready to serve the community and meet the needs of our guests. We hope you’ll check back often as we post updates on this project.
