Crystal Mountain Ski Area & Gondola
During winter, Washington’s largest ski resort, Crystal Mountain, has 2,600 acres of world-class terrain for skiers and snowboarders, along with many slope-side lodging and dining options. A new high-speed gondola allows skiers to make even more runs on those perfect powder days.
The addition of the Mount Rainier Gondola seals Crystal’s reputation as a world-class ski resort, but it also means that Crystal Mountain is no longer just for snow enthusiasts. The gondola climbs almost 2,500 feet from the mountain’s base to the top in under 10 minutes. Now visitors can access mountaintop dining and a stunning view of Mount Rainier year round, making Crystal Mountain a true four-season resort destination.
Just beyond the turnoff to Crystal Mountain Boulevard is the point where the Chinook Scenic Byway closes for the winter. So, road conditions permitting, everything up to this point is accessible year round.
