Crystal Mountain is great and a super beautiful resort. As a beginner/intermediate I've enjoyed Forest Queen (green) and the surrounding blues. I'm looking forward to Lucky Shot and other blues further up the mountain. I find it interesting that someone in a previous review called Crystal Mountain workers "mask Nazis"... I don't think real Nazis told people to wear masks for public safety reasons. Nazis killed people. Anyway, go to Crystal Mountain. Wear a mask. When folks gently tell you to put yours on once you are back at the lift, just do it. It's a rule we agree to when we enter and it keeps places that should be safe, like ski lifts, safe. Thank you Crystal Mountain staff for making the mountain a safer place for us skiers and snowboarders, as I'm sure you have done for decades.
