Crystal Mountain set a new record for snowfall passing the 600-inch mark Friday morning, said resort spokeswoman Tiana Enger.

The ski area is still open for operation and will run four lifts this weekends. It is the only ski area in the state still operating.

The previous record for snow fall was 596 inches set in 1999 when the resort was open for skiing until July 14.

Season passes for Crystal are currently on sale, but prices increase by $100 on June 1.

  1. Global warming sure fizzled out!

  2. I don’t take either side, but dude on TV say that global warming means more moisture in the air, which means greater snow/rainfall & violent weather patterns.

    Before I get jumped on, I should repeat – I don’t take either side..I don’t know enough about it.

    And once again the fools have confused climate with weather . . .
