Mt. Rainier Gondola Scenic Rides & Summit House Dining
Take a scenic Mt. Rainier Gondola ride to 6872’. Awesome views and dining at the Summit House, Washington’s highest restaurant.
Crystal plans to keep the Gondola open Wednesday through Sunday until April 19. It will re-open for Memorial Day weekend (May 23-25) and be open weekends through June 21. It will then be open daily from June 27 - September 20, 2015. Click here for the planned schedule.
For years, we’ve been telling our non-skier guests, family and friends about how awesome the view is from Crystal’s summit. Well now, with the new Mt. Rainier Gondola, everyone can experience the incredible views. Mt. Rainier is so close that it feels like you can reach out and touch the summit, but turn around, and you’ll get 360-degree views of all the Cascades. Mt. Baker, Mt. Adams, Mt. St. Helens. Literally the view will leave you breathless.
You’ll travel almost 2500 vertical feet in less than 10 minutes, across an alpine wonderland. Each gondola cabin only carries 8 passengers, so everyone gets a wonderful view. (Make sure to bring your camera.)
The Summit House is open whenever the Gondola is open, with incredible lunches! Sit outside on the patio and enjoy the fresh air with Mt. Rainier as your backdrop.
