Description

The alpine area of Crystal Mountain stands in the far north-western region of the United States, and is the largest in the area.

Located along the Cascade Range of Washington state, close to Seattle, the backcountry presents fantastic skiing opportunity.

So forget those lift lines and dawdling crowds, and join professional guides for some spectacular rides far beyond the swarm of skiers as we head into the wild and remote backcountry of Crystal Mountain.

Discover wide-open bowls, amazing glades, and steep chutes, creating a tailor-made itinerary designed towards your own level of skill, ability and experience.

We will optimise your vertical and find the best stacks of snow available on the Washington slopes.

Depending on your desire, we will begin our early morning journey with a long lift ride to the top of the system, or at the base of Crystal Mountain.

Then we will tour towards Silver Basin and Bullion Basin, or head in the direction of the Morse Creek area, which offers amazing skiing terrain. Crystal Mountain offers diverse and varied terrain that ensures rides for strong intermediates to eager experts.

This sets the greatest backdrop to the curriculum, which includes how to use a transceiver, environmental awareness, the use of skins, terrain assessment and an introduction to avalanche evaluation.

Will was great wise and fun to spend the day with.

Guide cancelled within 48 hrs and I was unable to find someone else and so far I’ve not been refunded. Put a small dent in my otherwise great trip to Revelstoke.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned alot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

Nate was very knowledgeable and got me to the top of mountain. He’s not as engaging as most of the guides I’ve had over the years. I’ve learned a lot about most of my climbs as guides talk about the mountain and the area maybe even plant and animals and I enjoy getting to know them better. We did talk a bit more on the way out of the trailhead. All in all a good experience. But not sure your company told him I had a knee replacement and would be slow.
