This hotel is located in the village at Big White resort. It offers ski in/ski out capability. The rooms are fairly average. There is a ski locker room just inside the door from the village side. The racks use locks that can be provided by the front desk. (These are not the typical American resort locks) These type of locking...

This was our first visit to Big White, and while their website was well-designed and informative, we decided to book the hotel and ski activities over the phone. Their call center appears centralized and can arrange stays at most of the lodgings at Big White. I should first comment how impressed I was the call center staff. We made our...

Last minute booking so we didn't have a choice of accommodations. Stayed in 2 rooms at the White Crystal. It's equivalent to a motel. Two beds, desk, small bathroom and a mini-fridge. A little noisy from the "street" traffic but the village is so small and relatively quiet. Ski locker room does not have enough spaces to store and lock...

We stayed 2 nights in a superior kit suite. Loved the gas fire place. Found that it's a bit noisy between floors with all of the door and ski boot banging around, stay on the top floor if you can. Also noticed that they aren't eco conscious with reusing towels and type of cleaning products. Very strong smelling cleaning products...

Just arrived. We ate in the pub/ restaurant for lunch. Flight getting to Big White was massively delayed so I wanted something quick and this place is in our accommodation. Think it's called the Bull Wheel...or something like that; it's the hotel restaurant and bar. Had a Caesar salad with extra chicken. I was eating and suddenly couldn't breathe. Coughed...

We stayed here for 4 nights recently in a loft suite, and were quite happy with our choice of hotel. The location is great- right in the village, close to the grocery store and restaurants. The room was a decent size, with a separate loft bedroom for my husband and myself, and my teenage son was sleeping on the foldout...

Basic hotel room with a tiny kitchen and no dishwasher. But the location is perfect for skiing right out the back door. Locked ski room can hold skis, snowboards and poles. Indoor parking at no extra charge is a plus. Restaurant attached to the hotel is average.

We stayed at the White Crystal Inn for the Family Day long weekend. It was our first time staying at the mountain and we shopped around quite a bit on price/location/value but in the end didn't have a lot of choice because we booked late. We chose it because we have younger kids and the location is very central. So...

Let's start with my companion's views: Negatives - Needs a fireplace in the room - Small kitchen - Stupid taps in the bathrooms - presumably Canadians must be taught how to use these as part of their education curriculum but we are mystified as to how to get a low stream of water - it's either fire hose pressure or...
