Skiers, riders, and foot passengers can all take a ride to the Crystal Mountain summit for captivating mountain views, a delectable meal at the Summit House restaurant or to drop back into the vast terrain that plunges below the ridgeline. You’ll travel almost 2,500 vertical feet to the summit where you will find breathtaking views of Mt. Rainier and the Cascade Range. You’ll also be just a few short steps away from the Summit House, Washington’s highest elevation restaurant.
Foot-passengers (non-skiers) are welcome to ride the gondola anytime during the winter. Skiers and snowboarders are fascinating creatures and don’t be surprised if you get to sit next to one on the ride up! Look like fun? Give skiing or snowboarding a try! Crystal Mountain has everything you’ll need for your first day on the slopes.
