More Info

Terrain

Eleven lifts service Crystal Mountain’s 57 named trails: 11% beginner, 54% intermediate and 35% advanced. The area receives 367 inches of average annual snowfall. Crystal Mountain has a summit elevation of 7,012 feet, delivering 3,100 feet of vertical. Base elevation is 4,400 feet. The winter season usually runs from Thanksgiving to mid-April.

With amazing views of Mt. Rainier, you’ll enjoy the scenery as you do everything from easy groomed cruising runs to more advanced glades, chutes, black and double black runs, and steeps. Natural snow is bolstered by snowmaking – which was added in 2015.

The 12,500-square-foot, on-mountain restaurant, dubbed Campbell Basin Lodge, near the top of the Forest Queen lift features beautiful views of the surrounding countryside and sits at over 6,000 feet. The resort has nearly everything that you could want – including ski and retail shops, bars, restaurants, salons and more.

If you want to do more than skiing, do one of the guided snowshoe tours into Crystal Mountain’s backcountry. Take advantage of the night skiing, which is available off Quicksilver, Discovery and Gold Hills chairlifts. The resort is also home to a number of festivals, including yoga and beer festivals.
