Full review

I Snowboarded Crystal pretty much all of the 2012-13 Season. It was by far my favorite mountain in Washington, although I have yet to ride Baker. This place has some great steep terrain and some beautiful powdery trails over by Northway. There is no park, and this place is run by people who think snowboarders should be sterilized, so clearly its slightly better if you ski. However the people that go there are really cool. Get to know them over a beer at the snorting elk. Order the Sauce (type of beer) its awesome
