went to crystal today 3/22/08---what a blast!! having been to caberfae the day before it was nice to have granular snow and sunshine, instead of bald "peaks" that were very hard and icy! what a great place---they've done a LOT to this place since my first trip there in 1986--the atmosphere was great. sure was more expensive than caberfae, but considering their snow and modern lifts, it beat caberfae easily. highly recommend for all ages!!
