Crystal Mtn Improvements?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Has anyone heard what improvements are planned for Crystal over the summer?

I thought the Master Plan included the Northway lift and Tram the first year...but that seems pretty ambitious given the winter we just had.

Other than that, I have not heard anything about what will actually get done this summer.

What I know of the improvements pending is this:

Northway's been widened so they can get a grooomer up there.

Many of the forested areas in northback have been thinned to open up more terrain.

This summer the base facilities for both lifts will be built but the towers, lines and chairs/tram won't go in till 06 summer.

Northback lift will not be a high speed lift. (good)

Tram will allow people parked at lot c to access the mountain without having to take that cattle car shuttle from the lot to the base area. (also will lighten up the first chair lift line on weekends.)

Lets hope that they don't put a chair up to the king. That would be awful and a loss to the inbounds/bc community.

Ski Nose

this was chairlift talk in early april when they reopened.)

As I read the master plan the tram was going to have its bottom station near where the mini-mart is by the ticket windows at the head of A lot. A later phase of the MDP is to build a new base area near the middle of B lot and have a chair running from there up to the current base. I haven't seen anything about a chair for people parking in C lot.
