Trip Ideas: Crystal Mountain, Washington

Hit Crystal on the right day and you will lap deep, untracked snow that keeps refilling.

Get access to everything we publish when you sign up for Outside+.

WHY: Hit Crystal on the right day and you will lap deep, untracked snow that keeps refilling. Even when the snow gods are spiteful, there’s plenty of fresh to hike for in the patrol-controlled off-piste and bowls.

WHAT: An avalanche took out the famed High Campbell lift last season, but the resort has built a new, better High Campbell to whisk the powder-hungry up to the goods along the Silver Queen bootpack.

WHERE: The party starts with a pint of Crystal Mountain Amber at the Bullwheel and carries over to the Snorting Elk Cellar, a bar straight out of central casting for a bro-down. Oh, and weed is legal in the Evergreen State.
