Crystal Mountain Ski Resort is the largest ski area in Washington State and sits at the foot of the majestic Mt. Rainier less than two hours from Seattle. It is an old-school resort with limited accommodations, no outlet shopping, or spas. With 57 trails, Crystal Mountain Ski Resort is a small ski area. But, the mountain has a variety of riding. This isn't a place for shopping or a spa treatment. This is a skiing mountain.
The key word at Crystal Mountain Ski Resort is variety. With a half a dozen peaks and basins, skiers/boarders will find groomers, challenging chutes, steeps, glades, bowls, a terrain park, and an expansive backcountry covering 2,600 acres of accessible terrain. Although the weather can vary considerably in Washington, the mountain averages 486 inches of snowfall annually giving you plenty of powder. You’ll also get some breathtaking views of Mount Rainier and the Cascade Range from the top. The fresh powder and views make Crystal Mountain Ski Resort the premier ski and snowboard mountain in Washington.
