Crystal Mountain, WA will be running it’s gondola tomorrow for skiing and riding to 51 lucky SOB’s who purchased tickets online this afternoon. “Consider this to be lift-assisted early season backcountry skiing with very early-season conditions.” VERY COOL!
Rocktober SkiFest – Oct. 1, 2013
“The Government might be shutting down, but we are opening up! Released in a press conference at the White Room earlier today, President John Kircher announced that the 2013 Ski & Snowboard Season starts and ends tomorrow. “It’s about giving the people what they want,” said Mr. Kircher. There’s up to 22” of snow in places and we can’t let a good thing go to waste. We will sell 51 tickets online at 4:00pm today – valid for gondola access from 10am-1pm tomorrow only.
Consider this to be lift-assisted early season backcountry skiing with very early-season conditions. Once you’ve made your sweet glory turns in Green Valley or elsewhere, you’ll have to either hike or skin back to the top in order to download (no other lifts will be running), or hike down to the bottom.
The cost is $15, bragging rights included. We’re not going to tell you what kind of equipment to bring as it should be obvious. This is Rocktoberfest. Ski with the weeds and early-season rockstars! We will post the link on our Facebook page at 4:00pm today. This is limited to the first 51 people to purchase a ticket online, limit two tickets per purchaser. Why limit it to just 51 people? It’s the start of our 51st season so why not. Game on!”
