Stayed here for a snowboard competition. 5 of us shared a loft room. It was VERY open plan. Two double beds upstairs are completely open to the downstairs and to each other. As we were 2 families (3 adults, 2 teens), it wasn't always easy to maintain privacy! Beds were not the comfiest in the world either. Having said that,... More

Our room faced the ski hill. Spacious, clean with plenty of towels. The only negative about the room was inadequate lighting. Great location for restaurants and bars. Excellent friendly staff. Great value.

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!

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.
