Crystal Mountain closed for the season!

Crystal Mountain closed for the season!

Postby Libtech » Sep 13th, 2014, 7:17 am

Heard sad news that Crystal will be closed for the season.
Very unfortunate for the staff and volunteers.
Sad for the families that go to Crystal every weekend.

Was a great little hill to learn on and to teach your kids on.
It will be missed!

Do you have a link or is this just a rumour that you heard?

Heard from other staff members and volunteer members.
There was a meeting last night for all us staff and volunteers at the mountain.
I was not able to make it.

The owners of the mtn brought this upon themselves. Dont feel any sympathy except for the people who were injured. Big white is a much better mtn anyway.

The loss of jobs is not good either as well as the people who went there to have some fun.

Seems to be a continuing trend of westbank being the town of no fun.

If it is closing, it is a sad season for local families and youngsters learning how to ski and snowboard. For decades it has been a ski hill stepping stone to big white. Big white is intimidating and extremely expensive for families.

It was nice to be able to learn to ski there in the early nineties, but other than the triple chair, nothing new has been done up there since then. You have to spend money to make money!

I am glad to see that the hill will not be open. It was obviously not safe and the owners and management had a hard time complying with regulations. Maybe a new owner will take it over and bring it up to date and try to attract more guests. Its unlikely anytime soon though. Oliver had the same issue at Mt Baldy. Did anybody ever hear the conclusion of the BC safety authorities investigation with Crystals chairlift "accident"?

I love Crystal mountain. I took my kids there all they time, and it was such an enjoyable time for them. I will never go to big white. I loved reading and eating their fries and sipping coffee in the chalette while the kids skiied. Sad.

What's sad is that somebody allowed it to get to this point. Also sad that the owners/operators could be so irresponsible with people's lives.
