Odds are, if you’re skiing Mount Baker, you’ve caught wind of the worst-kept secret in North America: No resort has more snowfall.

Crystal Mountain

Sprawled over bowls, basins, peaks, and pillows, Crystal Mountain Resort has the most terrain of any ski destination in Washington, as well as the best views.

Stevens Pass
