“It’s been a great first day back and we thank everyone who was here today for their cooperation and stoke. Reservations for Tuesday went fast but we’ll continue to open reservations at 2pm daily so please keep trying. Please also be patient and kind, we’re doing this on a very conservative basis to ensure everyone has a positive and safe experience.”
Excellent news for all you Washingtonian skiers and snowboards…Crystal Mountain Ski Resort reopened today and will operate for the next 2 weeks. Q13 Fox reports the ski resort has been closed for months due to the coronavirus pandemic but has reopened with strict guidelines for a safe experience for guests and employees. Heads up, do not just show up expecting to ski, online reservations are required and they are limiting capacity. From their website:
-There will be a limited number of reservations available by metered time slots each day we’re open. Everyone including pass holders will need to make a reservation online. Once you’ve secured your reservation you can then purchase a lift ticket if needed. If you arrive at Crystal without an online reservation, even if you have a season pass or pre-paid ticket you will not be allowed access.
-Reservations will open at 2:00pm on May 30 for June 1, with reservations available at 2:00pm on June 1 for each following day. Reservations are available on a first-come-first-served basis.Reservations will be limited to a max of four. Operations may be limited or modified at any time in response to changing circumstances.
-The gondola will be metered by hour with the first reservation to upload between 8:00 to 9:00 a.m. and consecutive hourly time slots until 2:00 p.m. Once you’re on the mountain you’re welcome to enjoy the slopes in Green Valley for as long as you’d like but you must upload the gondola during your reservation arrival window – no exceptions.
-Foot passengers will not be allowed on the gondola.
