More than 4,000 skiers and snowboarders hit the slopes at Crystal today for the opening day of the new Northway lift, according to to a resort official. Twin brothers Lance and Loren Petkovich were the first two to ride the new lift, a statement from the park said.


"The new lift really spreads skier traffic out and makes the mountain feel twice as big," resort spokeswoman Tiana Enger said in a prepared statement.



Crystal plans to be fully operational for the rest of the weekend and holiday week ahead with all 10 lifts in operation from 9am-4pm. Over 50 inches of snow has fallen this past week making for excellent conditions on the ski slopes.


Crystal plans to add a new lift in Bullion Basin next summer, Enger said.
