We'll journey from downtown Seattle to Crystal Mountain Ski Resort just outside Mount Rainier National Park. Crystal Mountain is known for it's white powder, scenic Gondola rising 2,400 feet, and it's epic views of Mount Rainier on a clear day. Once at Crystal Mountain we'll bundle up, strap on our snowshoes and go adventuring on the snowshoe trails. Upon returning from our adventure, we'll warm up with some soup and then hop on the Gondola for a trip up to the top of the mountain and watch skiers and snowboarders below. Then we'll relax and warm up at one of the outdoor fire pits before returning to the city. No experience is necessary to enjoy snowshoeing! It's nearly as easy as walking and is a great way to enjoy the great outdoors in winter. Didn't pack enough warm clothes? Don't worry, Crystal Mountain rents winter jackets and pants for an additional fee if needed. Is your partner a skier or snowboarder? They can hit the slopes while we hit the trail. Just send us a message for special accommodations. Please note that during the summer we run hikes on Mount Rainier, and in the winter run snowshoe trips at Crystal Mountain. You will see a mix of reviews from our Experiences! We are dedicated to crafting the best adventure experience for you!
I started my own adventure company Adventures In Seattle and we focus on small private and semi-private hikes for adventuring souls. We focus on the most beautiful hikes with the best views. Either myself or Kevin lead each hike. We are both experienced, professional outdoor guides with Wilderness First Responder certifications. We love to share our wonderful world with other adventure seeking individuals who feel the wanderlust and the tug of the mountains. Because the mountains are calling, and we must go... My annual quest for adventure has taken me on the Longest Horse Race in Mongolia, on a rescue mission on horseback to Lesotho, to the ends of the earth in Patagonia and to a remote reindeer tribe in Mongolia. But the truth is - I can find adventure right here in my backyard in the shadow of Mount Rainier.
