About the Ski Resort

Mt. Crescent provides Midwest skiers with a variety of slopes to both fascinate new skiers and challenge experienced ones.

Runs reaching up to 2,000 feet offer a 300-foot vertical drop, while the latest snowmaking equipment can cover it all with two to three feet of fine, well-packed snow. All trails are lighted for night skiing.

The Mt. Crescent rental shop stocks 1,000 sets of modern ski equipment, including skis, boots and bindings by many of the leading manufacturers. And for snowboarders, they have added a full line of the latest boards and boots to outfit a wide variety of riders.

Crescent's snowmaking system consists of 20 large snow cannons, two pumps, two holding ponds and miles of underground piping.

Mt. Crescent's ski school has PSIA certified and trained instructors and offers the ATS approach for beginner, intermediate and advanced skiers and snowboarders.
