Crystal Mountain is extending its ski season by two more weeks, thanks to our colder than average April and lots of rain and snow on the mountain this year.
Citing the same reasons, the station extended its season last month.
“We got over eight feet of snow in April, and it didn’t stop in May, making it one of the deepest springs in our history. With that, we are delighted to announce another extension of our ski season, with bonus weekends until June 12”, the station announced on Wednesday.
“We will continue to ski until we can’t ski anymore. The snow must continue! the announcement read.
Most ski resorts in the Cascades have pushed their seasons back to May, but Mission Ridge, Stevens Pass, The Summit at Snoqualmie, White Pass and Mount Baker Ski Area are all closed for the season.
Crystal Mountain, like the other resorts, started late.
Tiana Anderson, Vice President of Marketing and Sales, said in a statement, “…when the opportunity arises to extend the season, we will always prioritize this and continue to deliver added value to our cardholders. season passes.
The resort will be open Friday through Sunday for skiing and horseback riding in the Green Valley from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. During Memorial Day weekend, you can hit the slopes Friday through Monday. Scenic rides on the Mount Rainier Gondola will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. All valid 21/22 season passes, “Wild Cards” and spring passes will be honored, the station said.
