Great day - not sadly skiing but picking up the trash from the seasons less nice snow sliders that trash the slopes - some unintendedly and others that are just plain JERKS!  Oh well I get to pick up a lot of beer cans and they are worth a lot these days!  More than a penny?  Found stuff, lots of other folks found even more stuff and when I saw the display table at the base it was impressive!   Been doing this thing for a lot of years and the amazing thing is I still find original zip top cans!  Those things that nobody under the age of 40 knows about.  

Twas a nice day - not too hot, not to cold, nice cool breeze (and sometimes the breeze was howling), sun, clouds, no squeeters to worry about.... just a pleasant day...and my quads will hurt tomorrow?   Ouch!  

Other info - OUCH!  The new H (?) lot is getting cut out of a big patch of trees across from D and E lots...so much for limiting crowds and traffic? Bigger news is the new gladded runs below Bearpits and Lucky Shot Trees area...not just taking out the Avy tree debris but also a lot of glading of "real" formally live trees...will be nice, but OUCH!   All of the base area is a hive of activity and building - even heard big work up on Gold Hills rich folks' area!  Heard about but didn't see big changes in the main lodge both in the former Brown Bag area/original Crystal folks locker area and who knows whats happing upstairs in the main lodge?   But it's gonna be a big new world next season!

Crystal is no longer a local ski area.... moving into the big times!

This is a question I think you could advise me on.  I live in Yakima and unfortunately our Patrol Ski Swap was discontinued several years ago so there is nothing in that respect on this side of the mountains.   Do you know if Crystal has a ski swap in the fall or perhaps any other ski swaps that are held annually on the west side?
Any info appreciated.
thanks
