There’s no park scene at Crystal, so go for the backcountry access, limitless terrain, and the views of Mount Ranier, which most of the time you’ll have all to yourself.

Mission Ridge, Washington

Mission Ridge, Washington

Mission Ridge is a sweet local hill that knocks the socks off of most major mountains out there. It's got a family feel, but has all the rowdy, technical lines that any serious skier could want. When the rest of Washington is sopping wet, Mission Ridge skis clear and cold. We had the pleasure of catching it on a beautiful spring day today. Here are a few photos from the day.
