Our room faced the ski hill. Spacious, clean with plenty of towels. The only negative about the room was inadequate lighting. Great location for restaurants and bars. Excellent friendly staff. Great value.

First off, the location of the White Crystal Inn is the best thing about it. Right on the main village trail, walk out the door and pop your skis on, then ski literally back to the same spot. Most places are a 5 minute walk maximum away, and Sante’s is attached to the hotel if you don’t wish to venture...

While the White Crystal is likely a 3+ star hotel for most rating systems, I rank it as one of the best ski resort hotels at which I've stayed. First & foremost, it is ski in & ski out - main trails right at your door. It is also right at the main village, minutes walk to anything. Also handy...

I am giving white crsytal Inn a 5 star rating for the following reason: 1. super convenient location. The ski in/out door is the best you can get in Big White. It's right beside Lara's Gondola, and you can literally snowboard directly into your ski in door and place your gears in. And you can start a day by going...

“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.”
