FROM Crystal Mountain
CLIPPER UPDATE: We are excited to share good news about the planned re-opening of the Crystal Clipper Quad chairlift! But first, a huge ‘thank you’ to our mechanics team, the Leitner-Poma of America manufacturing team and North Country Alpine Services who have been working day and night to repair the Clipper. The team is replacing the bullwheel bearings, which requires removing the approximately 5,000-pound bullwheel.
Our goal is to have the Clipper running this Saturday, February 4, but if this changes, we will post an update on the daily Snow Report at crystalmountain.com/snow.
We appreciate your patience and understanding, and look forward to seeing you on the slopes!

Happy Hump Day! After 40 straight hours of snowmaking, we think we might have enough snow. Thoughts?
