• The Crystal Mountain ski resort says its ski season will end Saturday, nearly nine months after it opened in November.
The resort says the longest season in its 48-year history was made possible by record-breaking snowfall and the new Mount Rainier Gondola.
The resort measured 612 inches of snow from November to June. That’s 51 feet. The previous record at Crystal Mountain was 592 inches in the 1998-99 season.
