Crystal Mountain has the most lift accessed vertical in Washington and offers up a variety of terrain as well as breathtaking views of Mount Rainer volcano. Lodging-wise, there are a few hotel options at the base and nearby Greenwater is a cute little town. For après ski, don't look past Snorting Elk. It's a super authentic ski bar and pretty much the only nightlife on the mountain.

Great terrain, it's not a destination resort at all. The best of the local mountains near Seattle. Lift lines get long on the weekends, midweek is awesome. This place get lots of powder days and has steep fun terrain everywhere. Hike the king if it is open, the 40 min climb is very much worth it.... More

This mountain brings it. Inbounds and slackcountry is the real deal yet it continues to be off the national radar - likely because there is very little infrastructure. If you are fortune enough to be there when the PNW is dropping the goods, grab the first chair or gondi to the top, go get the honey holes (I wont tell you) until you are a... More

It's a great mountain to ride the Backcountry and side country are amazing the snow is usually great and not the typical wet heavy snow that Washington is used to. Weekends and holidays are literally the worst even with fresh powder most everything will be torn up by midday. There are so many people good luck being able to call or text or... More

My favorite terrain in the PNW, great snow at their elevation, and plenty of steeps, bowls, chutes, and drops. Terrain park is pretty minimal, and theres not much for a town or lodging nearby, but thats part of what keeps it from being crowded. Views of Rainier are spectacular! ... More

Best mountain in Washington. Nice gondola, some new upgraded lifts. Great spread out tree lines, some of my favorite runs in Washington. Elks Lodge near the parking lot is a great break spot for a beer! ... More
