Crystal HKDIam2021Teams

If “pressure is a privilege” the snowmaking team at Crystal Mountain in Thompsonville, Mich., is a fortunate bunch. The talented team of 20 has 162 years of collective experience, and it shows. Crystal had 108 days of skiing last winter, despite one of the lowest natural snowfalls recorded in Benzie County (68 inches). Still, our snowmakers were able to whip up 647 million pounds of snow – that’s more than four and a half times the weight of structural steel in the Mackinac Bridge! Despite what Mother Nature throws our way, the “heart and soul” of Crystal Mountain come together in perfect harmony, unifying their passion, enthusiasm and resilience to get skiers and riders on the mountain as soon as they can – and for as long as possible.
