I started going to Crystal Mountain actively. I liked it so far. I’ve been skiing since I was 9 years old and I believed that I was an expert skier until I saw native Seattle people cruising through double diamond powder trails like they are going through a green trail. It looks like I still have a lot to learn. This year I will be working on my double diamond and also black diamond skills.
It takes around 2 hours to drive from Seattle to Crystal Mountain. I would recommend leaving Seattle latest by 7:00am to get good time on the slopes. It gets a little cold after 15:00
