Crystal Mountain Resort was featured in a Washington ski roundup by Family Skier as the top family ski area in Washington.
Washington can be a great ski destination. As with other Pacific Northwest skiing, having a good base of snow is usually not an issue. Annual snowfall in this area is usually among the highest in the country. The mountains provide good vertical (1,500 to 2,500 feet of skiing vertical is common) but the elevations are low enough so altitude issues are lessened.
