Description

Crystal Trees is a substantial tree section between the cut trails of Crystal and International. Though it's thick at times, there are multiple sections where it clears for great turns through well spaced glades. Early season, Crystal Trees hold some of the better turns on the mountain. If you get sick of the trees, exit to either side for cut trails. To access Crystal Trees, take Monument or the Yellow Brick Road to the top of Crystal and International. The cut bump run to the right of International is Old Lift Line. The trees to the right are the start of Crystal Trees.
