During this remarkable guided adventure, you'll pay homage to Washington's spectacular Mount Rainier. This imposing, icy volcano stands at 14,410-feet above sea level, the preeminent icon of the Cascade Mountains.

You'll begin your journey from afar, traveling from Seattle to the Cascades with Cheryl's Northwest Tours. Along the way, you'll pass through quaint small towns as you enter the foothills, and enjoying evermore impressive looks at Ranier.

Upon arriving at the Crystal Mountain ski resort, you'll get an even more amazing perspective, as you step into a 4-6 passenger tram for a gondola ride up the mountain side! From this aerial vantage point, you'll also be able to check out Mount Adams and the valleys falling away below you.

At Crystal Mountain's Summit House, you'll have the chance to grab lunch or dinner, kick back and take in the view from the ridge, or explore some of the hiking trails along the crest.

Things look pretty good from atop the mountain!

  • I have taken two tours with Vimbly and am looking forward to many more in the future! They have a wide variety of opportunities, many of which I would never have thought of doing. Both tours that I attended were well organized, interesting, and fun. I look to Vimbly for ideas and activities when I want to find something fun to do.

  • Used Vimbly 3 times now: booked a Knife Skills class at Institute of Culinary Education, booked tickets to Improvised Shakespeare (HOW DID THEY EVEN GET ACCESS TO THESE???), and booked tickets to an Improv show at the Upright Citizen's Brigade. Really simple and efficient way to find something to do and book it right away without ever having to pick up a phone. I like that you can search by date and also category.

  • As far as a rating, I'd absolutely give your site a 10. It's easy to use, easy to find whats upcoming, unambiguous and concise. It's something my mother could use without calling me seven times with questions. I've already pointed some friends to the site, and you can be sure I'll be using it in the future.

  • I already have recommended it to a friend! Several in fact. The site is such a good idea and I love how the people at Church Street knew we were coming and treated us like their own customers and not coupon redeemers. My girlfriend and I will definitely be going back there and are already looking on your site for what to do next weekend.

  • Easily one of the best dates I've been on, and I have Vimbly to thank for the idea. Planning to use it again while I'm in the city for the next month, and already reminded my coworkers about it.
