Turn up the fun on summer 2023 with a gorgeous gondola ride to the top of the majestic Mt. Rainier. Just a daytrip away from Boise, it's the perfect getaway whether you're on your own with family in tow!

Farm-to-Mountain Dining Above the Clouds

Once you reach the summit, treat yourself to an incredible farm-to-mountain dining experience high above the clouds at the Summit Restaurant. Washington's highest elevation restaurant, the Summit boasts exquisite eats and breathtaking views of Mt. Rainier and the Cascade Range.
Created by Crystal Mountain's Executive Chef, Christian Adams, the upscale farm-to-mountain dining experience is unlike any other. Rest assured that Chef Adams' culinary stylings are as expansive as the views from the summit. The chef strives to create unique dining experiences worthy of the views surrounding the acclaimed Summit Restaurant.
You generally will not see the same dish repeated over the summer. We try to make sure we’re giving the guest a different experience in June than they’ll get in August. I want our food to be a reflection of our environment, of those views, and of the terrain and beauty that they’re experiencing when they come to Crystal Mountain.
-Executive Chef Christian Adams
