Crystal Mountain Resort will reopen three lifts for skiing and snowboarding on Saturday and Sunday thanks to a deep spring snowpack and recent snowfall.

The resort reports more than a foot of new snow has fallen since Monday. A statement released Thursday by the ski areas says, “the resort plans to stay open … at least four more weekends, possibly longer if conditions allow.”

Daily lift tickets are $40 and spring passes are $99. Those who purchase a 2014-15 season pass can ski the rest of this season for no additional charge.

The lifts open this weekend will be the Rainier Express, Mt. Rainier Gondola & Green Valley. All access terrain for intermediate and advanced skiers.
