You’ll have easy access to a vast network of hiking and mountain-biking trails, such as the Crystal Mountain Loop, which cuts through fields of wildflowers and across steep hillsides.

Crystal Mountain, Washington: Alpine Resort with Breathtaking Views of Mount Rainier
The alpine resort community of Crystal Mountain sits high in the mountains of central Washington, a few miles down the road from Mount Rainier National Park. Each year, the resort gets around 486 inches of snowfall, making for a longer-than-average ski season that can stretch well into June. While Crystal Mountain is most popular as a cold-weather destination—the namesake mountain is crisscrossed with 57 powdery runs—there’s still plenty to do after the snow melts. Explore high-altitude forests and meadows on hiking and mountain biking trails that lead to picturesque views of Mount Rainier and a handful of nearby waterfalls. You can also take a scenic gondola ride to the summit for breathtaking photo ops. While you’re here, grab a bite to eat at Summit House Restaurant. At nearly 7,000 feet, it’s the highest-elevation restaurant in the state.
