The cold and snow we’ve had all spring has folks at Crystal Mountain smiling. And starting Thursday, April 21, you can purchase a Late-Spring Ski Pass for $149, or renew your current pass for $99. The new season is expected to last until June 12, or later if conditions allow. Your pass includes use of the new Mt. Rainier Gondola, the $5.5 million dollar ride that just opened on Crystal January 1. It whisks you to the top in just 10 minutes (half the time it used to), and is fully enclosed, so you’ll stay warm and dry along the way. At the top is also the Summit House, where you can stop for some grub or hot chocolate. New late spring hours will be from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., with the last gondola download at 3:30 p.m.
The new spring schedule looks like this:
April 21 to May 8 (Thursday-Sunday)
May 13 to May 22 (Friday-Sunday)
May 28 to May 30 (Saturday-Monday) Memorial Weekend
June 4 to June 12 (Saturdays & Sundays)
