We just spent a week at Big White skiing and snowshoeing. The White Crystal Inn is the best ski in/ski out that I have stayed at in a long time. The resort does a wonderful job with storage of the skis and access to the outside is just a short walk away. After you get your skis on the lift is close by. Our stay was quite and very relaxing, enjoyed the hot tub and dry sauna.

We stayed at White Crystal for three nights in room 307. The room was very large, with a small kitchenette, which was perfect for quick breakfast and lunch. The room was comfortable, but a bit noisy. You can definitely hear your neighbors, people running in the hall, ice machine and the hill grooming machines outside which start up around 7:30. But chances are you are not there to sleep in, so this wasn't a huge deal.

All staff we encountered at the hotel and the resort in general were great. Andrew at the front desk was super helpful.

The ski locker is great for ski in and out. This hotel is perfectly located: close to the lifts, village mall (where you get your rentals, tickets, food, liquor, clothes etc.), there is restaurant on the main floor, which not bad.

I did use the ski school, group lessons which was great and I definitely recommend.

Room Tip: ask for a ski hill facing room, otherwise you will be looking over a road and hot tub.

This is our family's 2nd year at BW. Last year we stayed at the Whitefoot lodge, the room was way to small. This year we opted for a much larger room at the WhiteCrystal. As advertised it was ski in and ski out, and very central (within feet of the gondola). The only thing keeping me from giving it 5 stars is that the place was noisy and in fairness the listing for that room did say as much...but the road noise was one thing, but when guest are blaring radios... that is controllable. My other critique was they seemed to be stingy with the towels but they would be right there with a phone call. These two short comings were easily offset by the clean accommodations and great staff.

This time we choose to eat at several restaurants. The Bullwheel= awesome, great staff and good prices. Happy Valley lodge=good food, quick service, kinda of chaotic but a great family Apres scene. The Kettle Valley Steak house= $$$$ but great food and service, menu was limited but great wine selection.

As for the skiing, BW finally started to get snow the weekend we were there, either way it was still much better conditions than the states. If you are able to go and participate in Cruz the Bluz I highly recommend it as it is a great way to get you to explore the mountain.

Look forward to next year!

We were in room 318

It was very comfortable with a huge bathroom
We like to take our time and enjoy our breakfast in the room with a beautiful mountain view so we bought our groceries at the market located at Whitefoot Lodge and at the Bakery.
It had a nice fireworks view.
Its Ski-in, and ski-walk-out (to the right a short distance to the Bullet express chair or 100 yards to a tunnel that goes to hummingbird run to Snow Ghost and Ridge Rocket chairs base)
Lots of varied runs for every skier level
Enjoyed very much Happy Valley Lodge, we went there every day after skiing and some days to have lunch. Theres a skating rink, snow coaster and snowmobile rentals
The snow hosts that volunteer to show you the mountain are a great idea, and they enjoy doing it.
Big White have an excellent Kids Centre
We had the famous whiteout just one afternoon, so we enjoyed 4 days of great skiing with excellent snow.
This is not a place to show off, but a relaxed place to enjoy a good ski mountain, with friendly people, 2 or 3 nice ambient bars, and 4 or 5 nice restaurants.

We are planning to go again next year with our 16 y.o. son

The most incredible location on the mountain. Walk 15 seconds and you are in the Main Lodge (Village Center Mall) lattes and lift tickets, plus family games at night, cross the square and you are at the Kids Center (where you drop your kids off for ski lessons or day care). This unit has high ceilings and views from 3 sides. Kitchen stove heats very unevenly. Enjoyed the big Jacuzzi two person Bath Tub.
