Considered Washington’s most “resorty” resort, Crystal Mountain is actually one of the best ski areas in North America you need to include on your bucket list. Two and a half hours from Seattle, Crystal Mountain features 2,600 acres of terrain, a base at 4,400 feet, and 462 annual inches of snow that’s drier than any other Washington ski areas. Plus, that view of 14,411-foot Mount Rainier is like no other.
