First Dusting of Snow on Crystal Mountain

Posted: Updated:
CRYSTAL MOUNTAIN, WA - Crystal Mountain has gotten it's first dusting of snow.

Temperatures dropped to 30 degrees overnight at the top of the mountain, and about an inch of snow fell.

An employee working on the construction of the new High Campbell chairlift took these pictures at the top of Powder Bowl.

Last year Crystal Mountain opened for skiers and snowboarders on October 1st.

That was the earliest opening in resort history.

No word yet when opening day for the 2014/15 season will be.

The resort needs a minimum of two feet of snow before it can open.
