We love the Crystal "village" feel in summer and winter. The pool and recreation areas are VERY busy on nice days though and the additional rooms added to Crystal, mean more people. Our room needed some updating and cleaning was very average.

This place is not just for snow skiing. They have plenty of summer activities too. Archery and Crystal coaster alpine slide and the ski lift runs you to the top, swimming and lots more to do. Lots of fun for your whole family!

We loved this impromptu family vacation! Very helpful staff. We stayed on the resort and the room had the perfect view of the mountain! The rooms were newly remolded and beautiful. The entire faculty was well kept and clean. We will definitely be returning!

Spend a weekend afternoon and take the chair lift to the top of the mountain for fantastic views. Check out the two golf course that meander through the woods.
