Crystal Mountain is an easy 1.5 hour drive from SeaTac International Airport. You will need to rent a car or catch a ride with someone living locally. Get driving directions from Google Maps. There are no grocery stores at the ski area so you’ll want to stock up on provisions in Enumclaw before heading up highway 410.
At this time Ikon Passes are not direct-to-lift so you’ll need to stop by the ticket kiosk to get a lift ticket for the day. If you plan to ski or ride Crystal frequently this winter, please head into Guest Services to get a Crystal Pass which will allow direct-to-lift access during future visits.
Plan Your Day
With 10 lifts and over 2,600 acres there’s a lot to explore, the hardest part is figuring out where to begin! Start by familiarizing yourself with the winter trail map and download the free Crystal Mountain Mobile App. The 8-passenger Mt. Rainier Gondola is a great way to get up the mountain, and from there the choices are endless. Head over to Northway for some off-piste steeps, hit the bumps in Green Valley bowl or head over to Lucky Shot for some fun groomers. Once you’re ready to fuel up there are several dining options to choose from, including the Summit House which is Washington’s highest elevation restaurant! It can get busy on nice days so we suggest taking an early lunch break.
Crystal Mountain does not own any lodging, but there are four different lodging providers to choose from with convenient slope-side locations.
