The White Crystal may not be the poshest spot in Big White. For sure there are some more elegant chalets and condos you can rent - but if convenience, comfort, concierge service and restaurant/bar on site is what you're after - then this is the place for you. An cheerful Aussie front desk person ensures a warm welcome at any...

Being central in the village is great during a snow storm. If you're worried about noise due to being in the middle of the village - don't. I woke up numerous times due to jet lag and there was complete and total silence. We just got a standard bedroom which was surprisingly spacious being so used to the small rooms...

Easy in and out. Front desk is very accommodating to every request. Be sure and ask for bathrobe and towel for hot tub use. The restaurant downstairs including the bar are great. Food is excellent and bar ambiance is great.

A very basic Hotel but will meet all of your ski needs. Ski locker on the first floor gives easy access in and out throughout your stay. Hot Tub, a must for ski vacations, is a good size and well kept. Room was adequate, showed signs of wear from the harsh impact of ski boots to the rugs, but had...

Well, if they could sort out their dope smoking guests' parties at 2.30 am in the next door room, it might be a great family place to stay. And this is the second night in a row. Apologies were accepted day one, now a little hard to accept day 2. Can't wait to see how my neighbors celebrate Super Bowl...

Great hotel, clean friendly staff price was fair would stay again. Steps away from the slopes. Right in the village, great location. The room was big and bright with a great view of the mountain. Restaurant was good fresh and tasty menu. Will definitely be back.

From what we could tell, the White Crystal Inn is one of the best-located accommodations for ski in / ski out access at Big White, along with being located in the heart of the main Big White village. We had a very large room (2 bedroom), with separate bathrooms for each bedroom, as well as a big living room (with...

Stayed here for a snowboard competition. 5 of us shared a loft room. It was VERY open plan. Two double beds upstairs are completely open to the downstairs and to each other. As we were 2 families (3 adults, 2 teens), it wasn't always easy to maintain privacy! Beds were not the comfiest in the world either. Having said that,...

“There are a few two bedrooms you can ask for. Ask for one facing the hill and watch the groomers at night and the skiiers all day.”

“Choose between slope side views up the bottom portion of the ski hill, or views across the valley/mountains beyond (we liked this).”

“I think any room but maybe not over the restaurant, although they don't stay open late, so probably wouldn't be a problem. we like looking out to the ski hill but the other side would have great views of the valley.”
