Ski & Ride Free This Sunday at Crystal Mountain

Wrap-up a Great Winter with Free Lift Tickets April 7th


THOMPSONVILLE, MICH – To say, “Thank You” for a great winter, Crystal Mountain is offering a day of free skiing and riding this Sunday, April 7th - the latest closing date in more than a decade. The day is sure to be a great one with a slope side cookout, special end-of-season deals at Crystal’s Mountain Sports, and a chance to buy your 2013/2014 season pass at the absolute lowest price.

“The 2012/2013 season has been wonderful; great conditions on the hill all season long, fantastic powder days, and we met a lot of guests discovering northern Michigan skiing and riding for the first time,” said Chris MacInnes, Crystal’s Chief Operating Officer. “I think this winter will go down as one of the best at Crystal Mountain.”

Benzie County received more than twelve feet of snow this year, and Crystal skiers and riders enjoyed a base of more than 5 feet for much of the season.

And even as this season continues, plans for the 2013/2014 season are well underway – including a brand new Buck Quad Chairlift; more skiable terrain, recontouring of the Buck Hill; and expansion and improvements to Crystal’s snowmaking capabilities.
