Skiing on the 4th of July

Standard

The weather forecast is looking up. Fireworks stands are popping up in Safeway parking lots. Bags of charcoal, stacks of paper plates and hamburger buns are flying out of the grocery stores. It can be just one thing: 4th of July weekend is coming.

How about something a little different this year to celebrate our country’s independence and the freedom to skyrocket colorful explosives into the night sky? How about, instead of the traditional backyard BBQ, going skiing instead?

That’s right. Crystal Mountain is still open for skiing. We will be open Saturday through Monday for downhill skiing. The gondola is also open every day for sightseeing. And if you haven’t been up there yet, it’s definitely worth the trip. The vista from the top of the gondola is spectacular. Just think of the Christmas card photo you can get with your

family. And the views of Mt. Rainier. And the chance to shuss down into Green Valley on perfect corn. Plus, with mountain temps in the high 50s and low 60s and sunny skies predicted for this weekend, you can ski in your hawaiian shirt. And you cut-offs. Or even your bikini for those truly adventurous types.

So forget the backyard and instead ring in the celebration on the slopes.
