What a great place in the heart of the Cascades and looking straight at Mt. Ranier. At the base are two restaurants and hotels and plenty to keep you busy for many days. Take the gondola from 5,000 ft up to the summit at 7,000 ft. and you are looking right at Mt. Rainier like you can almost touch it... More

This was my first visit to crystal mountain. I've always heard goods things and assume runs were to be seen. And they didn't disappoint. First and foremost parking was a easy and fast. They have directors to make it fast and easy in and out. They offer buses to go from the parking lots to the main lodge. The ticket... More

This seems to be the only lodging option in the Sunrise area of the park. it's an old ski resort, the room is quite small with a double bed and a bunk bed, for a family of four, there is hardly space in the room to move around. it's ok to stay one night for the location.

While the mountain has a lot of intermediate terrain, the part that really shines is the amount of difficult and expert terrain. Steep chutes, lots of rocks to drop, cornices, and a large variety of all that. Most mountains have this type of stuff, but not nearly as much as Crystal does. On a good snow day I suggest powder...

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.
