2 Weekends Left for Summit Course/Gondola

There are 2 more weekends left for Gondola Rides to play the Summit Course. Lower Course will remain until near halloween depending on weather/snowfall.

Last day for Gondola Rides (until the winter snow comes) is Sunday October 2nd.

This is a great time of year to play Crystal Mountain Disc Golf because the vegetation is dying down and the dust has settled. Look for a clear weather day and Come on up to get some big air before the winter hits!!

Crystal Mountain Hotels, Alpine Inn Restaurant and Snorting Elk Cellar are closed until winter. The Summit House is open for lunch at the top on weekends.

Jeff, Ben and I completed the Summit Course setup on Friday July 29th. The Gondola ride is awesome...

All the baskets and signs are up, the mountain is beautiful with wildflowers and wildlife. Marmots are all over the Powder Bowl and hole 3. Wildflowers are everywhere including, Glacier Lily, Lupine, Purple Aster, Paintbrush and many more.

We now have 30 holes at Crystal Mountain... (18 lower plus 12 upper). The two courses merge at hole #12.

There is still some snow on the Summit course but most of it is gone. Boots are recommended because it is rough and rocky terrain.

Disc selection is key, think about the hole distance, elevation(drop) and wind before you throw. Make sure you bring some OVERSTABLE discs to help compensate for the winds and downhill holes.

Checkout the opening weekend video.

We have a small handful of people registered for the Mountain High Tournament.. Need more people to get involved, cmon and get those registrations in soon!!

See you out there soon!!
