RESORT DESCRIPTION:
This Northwest jewel is located on the northeast corner of Mt. Rainier National Park, just under two hours from Seattle. The terrain is vast; even long-time locals are still discovering new stashes. Over $25 million has been invested in the area over the past decade in high-speed lifts, terrain expansion, new dining facilities, day lodge renovations, and most recently the addition of the new eight-passenger gondola, making Crystal Mountain the largest and premier ski area in Washington. Slopeside accommodations provide for a great family vacation or weekend getaway.

SEASON HIGHLIGHTS:

• 2/25-2/27: Vertical Express for MS
• 3/4-3/6: Junior Freeskiing Championships
• 3/12: Hope on the Slopes
• 3/26: Spring Fling and Dirt Bag Ball
• 4/16: Bikini Downhill

TERRAIN BREAKDOWN:

The sprawling expanse of the terrain flows over half a dozen peaks and basins and lends itself to seemingly limitless variations. The key word at Crystal Mountain is variety. You’ll find everything from gentle groomed cruising runs to challenging steeps, glades, chutes, bowls and expansive backcountry for the more adventurous.

POWDER PERSPECTIVE:

Crystal is the place to start if you’re looking into a destination trip to Skiattle, as they offer the best lodging options in the area. While the inbounds terrain is vast, the jewell of Crystal is the South Backcountry—so much so that entire guide books have been written about it.
