Just posting to say we just rode your mountain this past weekend. Fantastic place man! And because of the Gondola announcement they ended up giving us two free lifts each day - saved like $240!!! What a blast that place was, after having riden the Ice Coast for just two season, Crystal really opened our eyes. The snow was great this weekend too. Definitely a Skier geared mountain, but no complaints here, just makes for more challenging runs once the powder has been tracked and packed.

BTW, that was the best food we've ever had on mountain and I really didn't mind paying $5 for the White Ale, that's some good beer!

I think it's great that Crystal has the capital and balls to make this investment in today's economy. I guess we'll see how it works out for daily lift ticket prices, which are too high as it is.

They should run the gondi up the king.

It doesn't make much sense where they plan to put it, other than the ability to download when there is no snow on the lower mountain.

Hell no. I wouldn't even want a lift up to the throne or king. It's worth the hour long hike. One thing that just occurred to me though, I wonder if they're going to build a new lodge up at the top, either attached to the upper gondola base or next to it. The current Summit House is weak.

At first you probably didn't want Northway either.
