The Crystal Lakes Ski Center (570/584-5607; http://www.crystallakeskicenter.com/ email firstname.lastname@example.org) is in a snowbowl location that often has snow when the rest of the region is bare and the trail system is second to none. There's varied terrain to please beginners, intermediates and advanced skiers. This is a full service area with rentals, ski instruction, ski patrol, hot lunches sold in the ski shop area, and a cozy fireplace lounge. Crystal Lake is a friendly place with lots of "regulars" who are always happy to share tips on their favorite trails.
