Thompsonville, Mich. – Most of the state is still dreaming of a “White Christmas”, but it’s a reality at Crystal Mountain which has 42% of its ski terrain open with up to 30 inches of base.

An abundant production of manmade snow during the first week of December has made it possible for Crystal to remain open despite unseasonably warm temperatures during Old Man Winter’s hiatus.

In fact, temperatures below 28-degrees permitted the snowguns to fire on Monday night with more snowmaking opportunities forecasted for 13 of the next 15 days.

Crystal Mountain currently has 13 slopes open (expert, intermediate, and beginner runs) and five chairlifts in operation.

The lifts will run from noon-8pm this week before shifting to regular season hours (9am-9pm) on Friday, December 22.
