This is a great mountain for real skiers. People who want plush lodging, and want to be pampered at a resort somewhere all day Crystal is not for you. Go somewhere else. If you're looking for somewhere to actually do some challenging, big, fall line skiing then Crystal is as good as anywhere. Cliffs, chutes, steeps, whatever you want you can find plenty of it. Head for "Niagaras" after a big snowfall, then you'll see what the place is all about.
