Full review

I'm used to boarding in Utah, CO & Montana so I go to Michigan resorts knowing the trade off will be much shorter runs, but a longer day due to night skiing. I went to Crystal the other day (and Caberfae earlier in day). Conditions were great, I remembered going down "Loki" & "Thor" in the past. What I was quite surprised by was how steep "Nose Dive" and "Gorge" were, I compared the angle atleast to be comparable to the "Front 4" at Stowe. Nose Dive is also quite narrow so its quick turns or eat bark. Just as a not (I will do Caberfae review too). Caberfae has a run called I 75 which is also very steep and narrow. All in all I had a great time and will probably rotate Michigan resorts in more frequently.
