The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch starting tomorrow morning. Right now, the NWS is predicting a few FEET of snow to fall at Crystal Mountain by Thursday night. If that forecast materializes, Crystal will open Friday November 18th.
And what a great opening day it will be. We currently have a little over a foot of good base in Green Valley and elsewhere. Add two feet of fresh snow, and we’ll be skiing.
Remember that early season conditions exist. Those rocks and creeks are now only buried by a little snow. Stay on groomed trails and runs.
Have fun and be safe. Let the 2011-12 ski season at Crystal begin! And pray that the forecast holds.
