We took a group of 13 to Crystal Mountain and stayed in one of the Mountainside Townhouses for 3 days and 2 nights. We were blown away with how spacious everything was and how the entire resort was laid out. The skiing was really good for the beginner'ish level of most of the group and there was enough to keep everyone engaged. If you want immediate access to all the amenities, try to stay closer to the lodge and spa. Everything is a quick walk from down at the bottom. The pricing for food, spa, lift tickets and rental was very reasonable.
There was a tremendous value of arriving on Sunday and getting the lower rates. Traveling from Indy, the drive was only about 6 hours and makes it very manageable for a weekend get-a-way in the future.
I highly recommend the resort for couples, groups and families.
