The goal of this section is to highlight a set of great runs at Crystal that don’t fall into any other section: all are accessed by Rainier Express, but feed into the base area. Every run in this section (with the exception of Melby’s) is fantastic and highly worth your time.
Washington’s first detachable chairlift, “REX” has been briskly bringing skiers to great glades, groomers, and steeps since 1988. It accesses a variety of advanced and expert terrain, as well as a few fast intermediate groomers.
Scenario: Last night it snowed 17 inches at Crystal Mountain. Today is by definition a powder day. Naturally, this has drawn rabid throngs of fellow skiers, wanting all the powder for themselves. What do you do?
Welcome to our blog! Here’s what we’ll be doing in the next few weeks:
- We’ll start by highlighting different areas of the mountain, and discussing runs both on and off the trail map.
- We’ll also be putting out some general blog posts. Expect those to come around every week or so.
