At Nature's Inventory, 800 pounds of Epsom salt transform a 10-inch pool of freshwater into a flotation tank. The water's buoyancy creates a sense of weightlessness—clients of all shapes and sizes float effortlessly on the surface, bobbing like corks or upended top hats from the set of Titanic. By dulling consciousness of gravity, the tank supplies a sense of ease, which can be deepened by closing the lid and basking in complete darkness for up to two hours.
To complement visits to the flotation tank, Nature's Inventory supplies clients with natural and botanically based products for sipping, improving skin health, and alleviating health problems. The company maintains an inventory of wellness oils for ailments as various as backaches and stinky dog breath, and also stocks chemical-free skincare products that come in minimalist packaging.
Draped across half a dozen peaks adjacent to Mount Rainier National Park, Crystal Mountain immerses visitors in more than 2,600 acres of snow-covered terrain. Skiers and boarders strap into their speedy planks and hitch a ride up the mountain on 1 of 11 chairlifts. After unloading, they point their tips toward sea level, fire up their boots' afterburners, and zoom down more than 50 named trails that range from the winding, novice-friendly Queens Run to the backcountry bowls of Penny Dawg's Cliffs and Paradise Trees. Those in need of a trick fix can head to the Sasquatch Jib Park, where a series of rails, boxes, and pole jams offer ample opportunities for grinding and sliding. Crystal Mountain averages 367 inches of snowfall per year, ensuring enough powder to satisfy thrill-seekers and still leave enough to sprinkle on an après-ski belgian waffle. In addition to the slopes, Crystal Mountain hosts the Mt. Rainier Gondola, which hauls visitors up 2,500 vertical feet in 10 minutes to the mountain's cherry-strewn summit. There, they feast their eyes on panoramic mountain views sprawling in every direction or dine on international cuisine at Summit House Restaurant, the highest restaurant in Washington state.
