Crystal Mountain Ski Resort in Enumclaw, Washington

Painted in 2007

Ask a Seattle skier what their favorite local mountain is, and there’s a good chance they’ll reply with Crystal. Even though the PNW is home to a wide variety of exceptional skiing, Crystal still stands out for its size and quality. With Mount Rainier as the backdrop, this Cascade gem shines bright. A gondola, ten chairlifts, and one magic carpet whisk skiers about the mountain, giving them their choice of terrain. And what terrain it is! Crystal has a nice mix of beginner and intermediate runs, but its expert terrain really shines, with 35% of the mountain’s named runs made up of “most difficult” terrain.
