The title says it all. Just be ready to shell out the bucks. But after a full day of skiing hang out at the snorting elk and relive all of your runs, just leave out the yard sales!

We picked this resort because we wanted to spend as much time as possible on the Sunrise side of Mount Rainier. It was the perfect choice for a quiet evening. The furnishings in our room were "dated", fairly banged up and worn. Definitely could have been repaired or replaced. The beds were comfortable. Food in the restaurant was delicious. There... More

Words can not do justice to this location. The view at the top of the gondola ride has to be seen to be believed. The food at the top is on par with the view. The hiker's wrap was really good. The soup of the day was as well. If you are going to see Rainer, here is the place... More

The gondola to the summit of Crystal Mountain in the summer is thrilling. If you are of luck, you may see Elk beneath you on the journey up. What a view.

Small ski area with easy slopes ( for me , a blues skier) near the foot of the majestic Mt. Rainier. Plenty of lifts. Snowboarding and tubing available. Multiple parking lots with free transport to lodge. Food and beer available in snack area. Lockers, ski rental, etc. Everything needed for skiing without being too big or expensive. Child friendly.

It cost $20 per person to take the gondola to the top during the summer and it was worth it! Beautiful views. There is a restaurant at the top - they seem to keep busy. You can also walk back down if you choose.

Beautiful day for a gondola ride. Climbed to 6800+ ft. Summit restaurant serves a great wrap and pear/strawberry salad. Quinoa salad not so good. Desserts are relish. Gondola ride a bit spendy.

We wanted to see Mt Ranier from a closer perspective but did not have time for an all day experience. We drove from Bellevue to Crystal Mountain and rode the gondilier up to the eating place at the top. Visibility was great and is was one of the most relaxing parts of a week in Seattle. The view to Mt... More
