This Northwest jewel, which first opened in 1962, borders the Northeast corner of Mt. Rainier National park. The sprawling expanse of the ski terrain flows over half a dozen peaks and basins and lends itself to seemingly limitless variations. Experience breathtaking views of Mt. Rainier and the Cascade range from the top of the new gondola and Summit House restaurant; a place you can enjoy fresh Northwest cuisine and relax and reflect in the majesty of the towering peaks and sweeping views.
The key word at Crystal Mountain is variety. You’ll find 2,600 acres of everything from gentle groomed runs for beginners to challenging steeps, glades, chutes, bowls and expansive backcountry for the more adventurous. Crystal Mountain averages 486 inches of snowfall annually which gives powder enthusiasts plenty to smile about.
$25 million has been invested in the area over the past decade. Top of the line high-speed lifts, terrain expansion, new dining facilities, day lodge renovations and most recently the addition of the Mt. Rainier Gondola, make Crystal Mountain the premier ski and snowboard area in Washington. A total of 11 chairlifts and a gondola ensure you’ll spend less time resting and more time enjoying the slopes.
When it comes time to refuel, you have plenty of options. From ethnic dishes at the mid-mountain Campbell Basin Lodge to gourmet Northwest cuisine at the Summit House Restaurant to delicious pub fare at the Bullwheel, you won’t go hungry. Don’t want to sit down? Grab a burger or slice of pizza at the Cascade Grill, or a light snack from Glacier Express Window and new Chinook Café which also offers espresso.
Come for the day or stay the night. We have three lodging partners that are conveniently located at the base of the mountain making for a great family vacation or a quick weekend away.
