"The daily lift tickets are good for between 9-12 hours, depending on the day."
"Perfect place for beginners or people wanting to refresh their skills."
"It's at the base of the ski hill so when all that melts it has to go somewhere."

Will not recommend to guests at my hotel anymore. They charged me twice for my trip and said that they did not. Then 3 days later they billed me again for the same amount of $85.60. So in total i was overcharged by $171.20 for the visit. I will never patronize this establishment again, furthermore I suggest not to give these crooks a chance to do the same to you. I wasted my entire evening disputing the charges and canceling my card. Now i must wait several weeks to receive a replacement, as well as the money that should easily have fed me for those several weeks. I am extremely dissatisfied and disappointed.

I had great time with family. Driving two hours to get there was worth it.

They used to be about the skiing and snowboarding but now it's just a sled hill wasting one of the only runs for sleds. No nastar and the new hours are horrible for people that have to actually work.

Very disappointed with this years hours before they closed at 9 during the week days it would give me 3 hours to get some ski time but now I can't even do that since they close at 6. Very upsetting for season pass holders since we cant even use our pass and the day I can Saturday they close at 6pm. They say there all about the snow business but every time we have some snow they are closed. If they where located in Colorado they'd be closed every snowfall. Thats what us skiers love fresh snow!!

I go a few times every year and it has degraded every year. When I first went a few years ago, they would always have both lifts running and had a good terrain park. When I went a few weeks ago, they only had 1 lift running because they didn't have enough staff and no terrain park. Just think they were interested in getting my $ and nothing else. Didn't really care about the consumer. Won't be going back any time soon.

I usually don't review a place but I have to. The staff is not friendly or very helpful. The only person that cared was the person that checked us in for our lift passes. However, he forgot to give me a zipper holder for my tag. I also ordered food and when it was ready they just plopped it in front of me and resumed their conversation. There was a line so I wasn't sure if it was mine or not so I just thought...I guess I'll take my chances and take this. Also, the parking lot is A MESS. My shoes were ruined because it's basically a mud pit. Please please please put in pavement. It's at the base of the ski hill so when all that melts it has to go somewhere. I'd like to go back again but it's not very welcoming.

Mt. Crescent Ski Area had to cancel ski lessons due to weather, which I understood and did not have a problem with. The lady on the phone said they would refund our money which has not happened after 2 months of repeated phone calls & emails to them which have been unanswered. I would not recommend this place due to their lack of business ethics.
