Ski Patrol Prepares for Upcoming Season

Last week, the Crystal Mountain Ski Patrol gathered for our annual training. We are all looking forward to a great season. With all the recent improvements on the mountain and within the patrol, we can’t wait for the snow to fall. Here’s a few photos from the past week.

    Thanks for all the nice pic’s….had hoped to do the big hike up today and check things out…plans got changed again…so sad and way to cold and windy today anyway.
    Thanks again – more pics and info always a big plus!
