Alta Crystal Resort was made for families. Our kids loved the nightly smores fest around the campfire, the wide selection of movies for rent (come on, they should be complimentary, right?), and the rec room with a ping pong table and foosball. They would have really enjoyed the heated swimming pool, which was packed with kids long into the night),... More

For 2 people from Florida who just got married, this place was absolutely perfect for us!!! The front desk staff was great and our room was pretty decent. Great location and so close to Mt. Rainier National Park!

A quaint, somewhat "rustic" group of small buildings with exterior entries to very nice suites. Hard to describe because the whole setting was superb while not a "luxury" hotel. Tucked into the forest just off the only road into the area near Crystal Mountain. Saw a family of Elk about 25 yards away on first night! - Lovely, year round... More

We visited Alta with another couple in February, as a weekend trip out of Seattle. This was by far the best lodging option for our ski trip. We had the two-level loft room (one bedroom on the bottom floor and then one queen sized bed in the loft). It was just enough space for two couples. We spent most of... More

My husband and I spent three lovely nights at the honeymoon cabin during MLK weekend. The cabin is so cozy and comfortable! It's the kind of cabin I'd like to own near Crystal Mountain! Pros: gas fireplace, functional kitchen, comfy bed, outdoor pool/jacuzzi, clean, comfortable, gorgeous cabin. Cons: None! After staying here I will never again stay at the Alpine... More

We stayed in one of the rooms that has a queen bed downstairs and an upstairs loft with two twin beds. There is nice,cozy fireplace in the room and a kitchen with everything you need to make some simple homemade meals after playing in the snow. The little shop in the office has all the sundries you need. It's a... More

Its about 10 mins away from Crystal Mountain. Staff is nice and helpful. Loft room is beautiful and spacious for 4 adults. Only thing is the ladder to get to the loft is quite steep, so not really easy to get to the room. But it has 2 beds and full bathroom upstairs. On Sunday night, had a bonfire in... More

My wife and I stayed at Alta Crystal Resort the weekend of 1/24. We had planned on a weekend of skiing, but after learning of the poor snow conditions upon arrival, we skipped that and instead snow-shoed and hiked. The resort was everything we wanted, which was important given that it comes in at a slightly higher price point than... More

This was a great place to stay for hiking in the Sunrise area. The sunrise gate was about 15 min by car. We stayed in 1 bedroom Q with Loft which was perfect for our family. (Note that the ladder that leads to the loft might be an issue for small children.) We used the fireplace in the unit and... More
