Full review

This mountain is grossly misrepresented by our western Washington brethren. While the views are nice, and the open skiing / terrain are pretty sweet, everything else about Crystal leaves something to be desired. The mountain is crowded, parking is a mess, the base area / lodge is woefully inadequate, staff is distracted / despondent, trails are confusing and generally unmarked, lift ticket price is about 20% high, and food is outrageously overpriced.
