I don’t want to steal Corey’s thunder here (he mentioned that he soon wanted to address ski industry myths) so I will be brief. Crystal Mt. isn’t the only area that come closing time the customers simply shrug and say too bad the Forest Service won’t let them operate anymore. That myth is industry-wide. We usually close down because people stop coming up. It starts happening in March, when all of our skiers seem to go to Whistler and Sun Valley. Did you know that Washington state exports more skiers than it keeps? In other words more people from WA ski out of state than in. Or they ski more days out of state than in. By April, there are more employees than skiers, and it doesn’t take a genius to know that can’t last. With the gondola, sightseers, diners and skiers can fill those cabins and keep the bullwheel turning.
