Get whisked away on a scenic ride up to the summit of Crystal Mountain and breathtaking Mt. Rainier views. The Mt. Rainier Gondola, open November – September, is a 10-minute ride to stunning views of Mt. Rainier and the surrounding Cascade Mountains. Washington’s highest restaurant, the Summit House, sits next to the gondola and serves Northwest cuisine in an alpine setting with unbelievable views that are both unique and breathtaking.
The Mt. Rainier Gondola is located at the Crystal Mountain Resort on the Sunrise side of Mt Rainier, just six miles from the Northeast entrance to Mt. Rainier National Park. Nestled amid stunning forests, wildflower-filled meadows and pure Washington wilderness, Crystal is a fun and relaxing escape.
At Crystal Mountain, find miles of hiking and biking trails winding through alpine lakes, along epic ridge lines and through evergreen forests during the summer. An 18-hole disc golf course spans the mountain top-to-bottom, and frequent weekend events bring live music to the hillsides.
