Quite the ride up the mountain. You don't even see Mt. Rainier when you start, and then after a breathtaking ride up, just over the ridge it appears. It's like you can reach out and touch it. Along with a great view of Mt. Adams, and on a good day, Mt. St. Helens. Great walk on top, lunch and ride... More

A great first view of Mt. Rainier. Take the Gondola ride. The ride itself is fun for kids and the views from the top can't be beat. Our photos from the top of Crystal Mountain are the prettiest photos we took at Mt. Rainier. The views here will really take your breath away.

I have never seen a view as beautiful as the top of Crystal Mountain. Once you get off the gondola ride there is Mount Rainer so close you can almost reach out and touch it. It is a must do if you go to Crystal Mountain, you will not regret it, even if you have a fear of heights this... More

$20 per person, but amazing view from the top. Must do at least once. Go up in the morning and hike down if you really want to get the most out of it.

Great Views and saw a Elk. The view from the top can not be described in words. Breathtaking. (watch out for the wind at the top)

Staying in the area and decided to take advantage of the sunny day and take in the views -no better place than the summit at Crystal Mountain. Had a decent lunch in the restaurant surrounded by incredible beauty. Thrilling ride to the top and back down again. Still needed to bundle up on April 20th- quite cold and windy- was... More
