It has been more then 15 years since my last trip to Crystal mountain, and there have been alot of changes.The main building, Hamlet and Colony buildings all remain close to how I remeber them so they did seem a little dated. But the rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. They now have so many condos and cabins it's difficult to decide where is the best place to stay. Good news is the area is smaller so everything is really close. Dinner at the Thistle pub was excellent, even the children enjoyed it.
My children have never been skiing before so this was very exciting for them. Both were signed up for 10-4 lessons at a great price(included rentals and lunch) and gave us a chance to hit the slopes without worrying about them. By the end of the day my 10 year old was on the blue's and my 6 year old almost mastered the greens! But they had a blast and that is all that mattered.The swimming pool and outdoor skating rink were also tackled during our stay, both were enjoyed by all of us. All things together this is a great resort and I will plan to visit more often!
