Crystal Opens for the 2012-13 Winter Season

THOMPSONVILLE, MICH – Crystal Mountain is preparing to flip the switch on the 2012/2013 ski and ride season. Cold temperatures have allowed Crystal’s snowmaking team to have the guns on for several days this week. That snow combined with a few inches from Mother Nature and there is now enough base to open Crystal Mountain for the season this Friday, December 14. To celebrate the opening of the ski season, Crystal is offering special prices on lift tickets through Thursday, December 20th:

• Adult Lift Ticket is $20
• Junior (9 to 15 years) Lift Ticket is $15
• Kids 8 and under ski free

Crystal will be open Friday and Saturday 10am until 8pm; Sunday 10am until 6pm; and Monday through Thursday Noon until 6pm. Skiers and riders will be able to ski 2 to 3 runs from the Cheers chair lift and Totem Park’s magic carpet. In addition, 2-4 features will be in place on Tuck’s Terrain Park.

To further celebrate the season, Crystal presents its first 5 for $50 event this Friday! Each group of five skiers can purchase lift tickets for just $10 per person.
