Last Weekend to Ski at Crystal (Plus a Bonus)

Standard

Skiing isn’t over until the fat mountain sings

There’s one last weekend to ski at Crystal before we switch over to full summer operations. Green Valley and the Gondola will be open Saturday and Sunday for one last hurrah of the 2012 spring skiing season. It has been an interesting few months, with the weather conditions running the gamut from winter to summer and back again.

Currently the forecast for Sunday (the better of the two days) is calling for partly sunny skies with a chance of showers in the Cascades. Not bad, considering that it’s currently foggy and misting from the Sound to the Cascades. The weather here giveth and it taketh away. But at least our forests are not exploding in firestorm.

Oh, and the bonus? Sunday is July 1st, which means that for all you turns-all-year folks, you can check off that skiing-in-July box the very first day of the month. So we’ve got that going for us. Which is nice.

    One of the reasons why I came out to PNW and Crystal on the 1st to check off July. Turns-all-year are slightly more challenging when you live in Eastern Canada (even more when you don’t have deep pockets). Hoping to get a TR of my PNW escape. Now I just need to figure out a way of making a PNW escape in Winter sometime.

You people are amazing. Thanks for commenting.
