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... More

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... More

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... More

We have stayed at the White Crystal Inn a number of times. It's location is superb - it really is proper ski-in / ski-out in that the entrance is on a ski run! The hotel is also right in the heart of the village and so very easy walking distance to restaurants, bars and the gondola to Happy Valley. All... More

Forst time at Big White, Forst time in Western Canada. This hotel met my needs for a clean loaction to sleep and access to the ski village and activities. The hotel boasts an excellent restaurant and good beds. Very large rooms compared to German resort properties. Very big bathroom which I enjoyed.

Stayed during Xmas and new years time. Room was good size for a hotel room. Great location. Nothing too fancy but high ceilings and view were nice. Was a bit put off that they tried to charge for the phone calls to room service when there is already service charge for room service. All in all was decent for what... More

Best spot for a resort available! We booked the beautiful 2 bedroom corner unit and with a baby spent a huge duration of our time in the room. Perfect room! Perfect view from all windows!

Stayed here for a Christmas week ski trip this past Christmas (Dec. 2013). Fantastic location with excellent ski in/out access and right in the village. Super friendly staff. The room was clean and comfortable with good mattresses and a nice spacious bathroom. We would absolutely pick this hotel again if we come back here!

Great snow, a huge mountain with incredibly interesting terrain variation and scenery. The free ski hosts were fantastic. The hotel measured up to the mountain. It is not a new hotel but it was clean, orderly and everything was convenient. Friendly staff that gave prompt and effective service.
