Mt. Rainier Gondola Rides
THE SUMMER SEASON FOR 2014 HAS NOW ENDED. THE MT. RAINIER GONDOLA WILL RE-OPEN FOR THE WINTER SEASON WHEN THE SNOW FLIES.
A wonderful activity for everyone! You’ll be rewarded at the top with one of the best views of Mt. Rainier anywhere! And, during your 9-minute ride, you can view wildlife meadows, listen to babbling mountain streams, or keep an eye out for elk grazing or fox scurrying after rabbits.
Crystal’s new Mt. Rainier Gondola opened January 1, 2011 and it’s one of the most exciting things to happen here in years. Now everyone—grandmothers, hikers, babies in strollers—can experience a view that makes you feel like you’re on top of the world. Have a gourmet meal at the Summit House Restaurant, or grab a quick snack and sit at the outdoor picnic tables. Hikers can even take advantage of the “lift” to explore high alpine trails. The Northway Trail (with incredible views) is a personal favorite of ours.
The Mt. Rainier Gondola is open daily through September 21 in 2014, giving you more time to soak in the views! For more information on the Mt. Rainier Gondola and dining, click here.
