Crystal Mountain, Michigan
My go to favorite ski mountain for western washington. i lived outside of crystal for eight years while working out there and always felt lucky to have it so close to my house.
Living in the Seattle area, the three closest ski resorts are Crystal, Stevens Pass, and Summit at Snowqualamie. If I had to choose one to make as my go to mountain, it would deffinetly be Crystal. Crystal has the longest and most runs of any of the three resorts. The only issue with it is it does have a long line problem on the weekend, which is why I'm knocking it to 4 stars.
