New! Weekend snowshoe tours from the top of the Mt. Rainier Gondola.
What a great way to get outside this winter. Crystal’s snowshoe tours take you along the ridge line at its summit, offering breathtaking views of Mt. Rainier—and all the Cascades stretching from Mt. Baker in the North to Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Adams in the south.
You’ll start your tour in the Rental Shop, where you’ll be fitted for your snowshoes. Snow boots are also available if you need those.
You’ll then meet your guide for a 10-minute trip up the Mt. Rainier Gondola. The enclosed Gondola whisks you across a beautiful alpine landscape. Be prepared to be amazed when the doors open up top and you’re greeted by Mt. Rainier.
Your guide will then take you along the ridge line, out towards Snorting Elk Bowl. You’ll then return to the Gondola for your ride down. Even better, go on the early tour and have lunch at the Summit House afterwards.
Tours are offered daily at 11:30 and 1:30 p.m. weather permitting. The total cost is just $50, including your Mt. Rainier Gondola ride, snowshoe rental and 1.5 hour tour. Arrive at the rental shop 1/2 hour prior to the tour start time. Private and group tours can also be arranged.
