Lovely drive out to Crystal Mountain Ski Resort where the gondola ride is worth the ticket price. From the top: Mt Rainer is right in front of you. Very scenic. The Lodge at the top offers terrific sandwich plates and wonderful views as well.
The Gondola is the fastest way to the top. However if it is windy, they may stop running it. Hope for good weather on the day you ride!
Was an accidental discovery for us.The ride on the gandola and the views it offered were spectacular.At the top of the mountain we get to see Mount Rainier .Well worth the drive and money.Would highly recommend!
We've now done this thrice in 16 months! Pros: - Gorgeous views, gentle ascent - Plenty of parking - Well-maintained rides - Polite service Cons - A tad pricey - Can get uncomfortably chilly from Sep-April if not warmly attired
If you love nature and it's beautiful landscape, then this is a sight for you. As soon as you exit the gondola, you're greeted by an amazing view of Mt. Rainier. You won't believe how close the view is. Personally, I could have easily sat there all day enjoying the views.

The gondola ride and lunch at the restaurant at the top was definitely a highlight of our couple of days in Mt Rainier. The views are incredible!! And sitting in the outdoor patio of the restaurant and looking at Mt Rainier and others was the best.
The gondola ride lasts about 12 minutes and is incredible. When you exit you see an awesome site of Mt. Rainier--we were there on a sunny day and it couldn't have been better!!
The sun was out so we headed there to catch the gondola before it shut down, awaiting the snow season. Fantastic views! We enjoyed the restaurant with great food and really good service. Actually surprised about that. The view of Mt. Rainier was awesome. Other mountains were also visible: Mt. Adams and St. Helens in the distance. We are looking... 更多
An absolute must see if you are in the Seattle area. A bit of a drive but beautiful scenery along the way. The view at the top was breathtaking and if you can stay to eat, do it! Food is a bit pricey but very good.
