Sure nuff, I took this on my first and only trip to Crystal Mountain this past March. I was meeting some friends in Seattle and had some time to kill before dinner. So, I went skiing.
Conditions were spring slop but, the sky was blue and the sun was shining.
I couldn't believe how close and how BIG Rainier looked. It was an impressive site.
Crystal was a really cool mountain too. On a powder day that place would rock. The lifts were fast, the terrain was varied and I found plenty to keep me occupied for the day. I don't remember having to traverse all that much either. I'd definitely go back. Granted I was there on a Wednesday in March so crowds weren't going to be a problem.
Glad y'all like the photo.
BTW, does anyone know if that photo I took shows the standard climbing route up Rainier? Can anyone pick out any famous features?
