Resort Ski for Free – Here’s How

  • Day 28 – March 29, 2016
  • Crystal Mountain
  • Vertical for the day: 10,000
  • Year total: 572,000

A little-known fact about Crystal Mountain ski area: With a little effort, you can ski for free.

Just strap on some skins and start heading up the slopes next to the Quicksilver lift.

Dropping into the Southback.

Once you reach midmountain, you can traverse to the Forest Queen lift and load at will, no ticket needed. You have just saved $72.

SkiZer used this approach for day 28. It was a stunning bluebird day. The SkiZer first climbed into Silver Basin, reaching the slopes of Three-Way Peak. After a stellar powder run, SkiZer loaded the Forest Queen chairlift to access the Southback, where two more runs made it a day.

All for free.
