Absolutely horrible, it was even raining up top! There was numerous STANDING WATER HOLES! The snow is so sticky from all the rain that sucks your skis into a near stop every where! DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY WAIT UNTILL THEY GET AT LEAST 12

Was up there Saturday. It's difficult but very skiable. Sugar snow in most places but rock hard with no grip underneath or in the shade. Be very defensive if you plan on going up. Don't even attempt off the groomers.  Need new snow badly.

Conditions made me shutter. No base... place is more fit for grazing cattle and goats. So much for skiing Washington State... decided to drive 850 miles to Utah instead. That's how bad it is!

Green valley is so so up top & an ice rink at the bottom, Lucky Shot/Rocky shot is mediocre, anything off forest queen is like playing Russian Roulette

Green valley is so so up top & an ice rink at the bottom, Lucky Shot/Rocky shot is mediocre, anything off forest queen is like playing Russian Roulette "will I hit a rock patch, won't I??". If you have a pass with nothing else to do I guess go. If not, for the love of God save your money!!! Nworth

WOW! Can't believe they are operating still with this little amount of snow. Saw ski patrol bring down 2 people off the mountains for injuries. Side note customer service towards Season pass holders is just as good as the snow...the old bats in guest services where a real peaches.

Rode Crystal Mtn yesterday (1/25) and the top half is still worth the drive up. All runs for Rainier express/forest queen are corny/slushy with icy patches in ye shades areas. Definitely ride the Gondy down if u can...way too many rocks!!

Bit of a delayed report (sorry for that). Went about 10 days ago and the conditions were okay at first but by noon everything was getting kinda slushy. The weather just hasn't been kind to our mountains this year.

Good news is that it IS manageable.

Beautiful ski day to start out the new year. This was taken yesterday, January 1st. Great skiing, but beware some bare spot & exposed rocks. 
Looking forward to some fresh powder.

Extreme early season conditions. Crystal once again stealing people's money. Not worth the 68$ to be riding on dirt and rocks. Forecast looks good for sat/ Sun though.

Super early season conditions. Lots of rocks and the cat tracks are a death trap for your base. Bring the rock skis and pray for snow

Was there closing weekend (4/18-4/20) conditions were AMAZING. It snowed over a foot and the temps were below freezing (up top). I can only imagine what this weekend is going to be like after another week of untouched dumping!!! Winter isn't over at Crystal Mountain.

PS they are only open weekends till the snow runs out.

Great spring conditions.  Sun was out for a while but clouds have come back with a vengeance.  No crowds so no wait for the lifts!
