Time to wax the skiis, do a few stretches and gear up… Time to think snow! Crystal Mountain is open for business tomorrow.

The 2010-2011 ski and snowboard season will begin with limited operations. The ski area will be operating the Discovery & Quicksilver chairlifts from 9am-4pm. Chinook Express and Forest Queen Express are expected to open around 11 am. Lift tickets will be discounted to $20 on Friday, the 19th — such a deal! And don’t forget, kids 10 and under always ski free at Crystal with a paying adult. Operations and rates for the weekend are yet to be determined.

And make plans to visit next month after the new gondola’s begin operation. A quick ten minute ride will take you from the base of the mountain all the way to the summit.
