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

Located on the edge of the Mt rainier national park alta crystal is ideally located for access to several great hiking areas. You will need a car to take the short drives to the various locations. There is a fantastic hike in the sunrise area. Alta crystal is in the forest on the side of hiway 410. The staff are... More

The Alta Crystal Resort is a wonderful respite away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The rooms are spacious and well appointed with a very comfortable bed! We stayed three nights and found all the park attractions within easy driving range. The unit we rented included a living room with a fire place, two bathrooms (one downstairs and... More

We were very limited by what was available at the time of year we visited. We were very pleased to find Alta Crystal Resort. When it comes to customer service, these accommodations cannot be beat. However, we were disappointed in the physical condition and layout. We stayed in the loft suite. The full kitchen included an apartment size frig and... More
