Crystal Mountain (Downhill Skiing)

 

Crystal Mountain is a small family-oriented skiing and snowboarding area located just 15 km northwest of Westbank and Kelowna in the Okanagan Region of British Columbia. The facility features 212 m (700 ft) of vertical drop, 24 groomed downhill runs for riders of all skill levels ranging from beginner to advanced, and the Rankins Rut terrain park. There are also 12 km of cross country and snowshoeing trails available in the area. Crystal Mountain gets on average 310 cm (10 ft) of snow every winter season.

Perhaps the most distinguishing feature of the resort is the 30-foot Ice Tower. Visitors who wish to climb the tower will be geared up and taught by a mountain operator how to use climbing tools such as ice picks and ice cleats.

At the base of the Crystal Mountain ski area there is a day lodge, a cafeteria, pubs, and a ski shop with equipment rentals. This facility also offers ski and snowboard lessons and ticket discounts to first-time riders.
