    CRYSTAL MOUNTAIN, Wash. - Fresh snow means Crystal Mountain Ski Resort will open three lifts Wednesday.

    The resort announced The Discovery, Chinook Express and Forest Queen Express lifts will now run daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

    They’re hoping to open Rainier Express, Green Valley and the Mount Rainier Gondola by Friday if the incoming storm delivers on its promise of 1-3 feet of powder. 

     “Unfortunately the strong winds have blown a lot of the snow that has been falling off the upper ridges so we still need just a little more snow to open the upper mountain,” Crystal officials wrote on its website.

    On Thursday, the ski area reported a snow depth of 10 inches at the base and 18 inches near the top.
