Anybody up at Crystal Mountain this weekend?

Just curious about conditions and whether it was crowded. Thinking of hitting it the last weekend...

I was there on Saturday.  It felt more crowded than the other spring weekends I've been there because they're down to just Green Valley only.  So, there was a line for a little while mid morning.  Not a terrible line, but there was a line for a bit.  Conditions were quite good, a little firm in the morning because it did drop below freezing Friday night, but everything softened up quickly as soon as the sun hit it.  Some aspects took a couple of hours before they got enough sun but I'd say by 11-ish, even those faces had started to soften up.  They are losing snow fast though, that's for sure.  It'll be interesting to see how much longer they stay open.

 

Oh, and without REX running, having to walk back up the cat track from the Green Valley lift to the gondola to download is kinda a drag.

I was hearing July 4th is last day "for sure".

 

Lift line was about 5 or 10 minutes sometimes. Conditions were good. Hardpack for the first couple hours then slush. I brought two pairs of skis, and switched at lunch but it was more for fun factor than totally necessary.

 

Agree the hike from Green Valley back up to the Gondola in the slush is a drag.

Their website has been updated to say they are definitely open the weekend of the 9th/10th.  After that it says TBD.
