It’s June 4th and Crystal Mountain has finally delivered warm sun and corn snow to Northwest skiers and riders. While the snowpack at the
base area has begun to shrink, up at the summit the snow is still mid-winter condition. Today, you could sit in one of the new “green chairs” overlooking Mt. Rainier or just buzz down Middle Ferk’s in shorts and a reverse ball cap.
As Ross Gregg put it, “there was good energy on the mountain today.” Even with a long gondola line to start off the morning, moods were high and laughs were easy. Conditions were
superb on Sunnyside at about 11am. This is spring skiing at its best–the snow softened quickly and maintained a perfect springy forgiveness well into the early afternoon. Then it was time for beers and live music on the patio.
Not a bad day at all. Looks like tomorrow will be another 5 star day. Hope to see you up there.
