Crystal Mountain is one of the region’s premier ski resorts, but in the summer, the ski resort turns it’s ski runs over to the sun seekers and view finders. For this hike we have two options - take the easy route to the top on the Gondola and hike down. Or hike up and ride the Gondola down. Both routes offer stunning views of Mount Rainier and the perfect place for our picnic lunch at the top.
