Long Description:
Crystal Mountain opened for skiing in 1962 with 2 rope tows and a double chairlift, and grew slowly over the first few decades. Today it’s Washington’s largest ski resort with 11 lifts and the only 8-passenger Gondola in the State.

Crystal Mountain offers 2,600 acres of accessible terrain (2,300 acres of which are lift served). Skiers and riders will find everything from relaxed groomers to challenging advanced terrain. Expansive backcountry parallels the open boundary policy for experts.

11 lifts service Crystal Mountain’s 486 inches of average annual snowfall. Crystal Mountain has a summit elevation of 6,872 feet,
