Top 5 Reasons to Spend your Holiday Season with Crystal Mountain Hotels

Wondering where to take your winter vacation? Contemplating the best place to spend the holidays? Curious if Crystal Mountain Hotels has everything you need for the perfect ski escape?!              

Trust us, you’ve come to the right place

1. Park. Stay. Play. 

We offer three slopeside hotels, each with their own unique charm. Don’t worry about waking up early to pack the car and drive to the slopes, only to wait for a shuttle to pick you up from the parking lot; all of our hotels are a five minute walk to the lifts or less!

2. Crystal is THE mountain in the PNW.

With 2,600 acres, 3,100 feet of vertical, 11 lifts including the Mt Rainier Gondola, an average snowfall of 486 inches a season, you can’t beat Crystal. With gentle groomers, high peaks, basins, steeps, bowls, chutes and unlimited backcountry, we’ve got the variation, terrain and conditions to make your ski vacation all that you’ve dreamed it to be.

3. No need to stress, convenience is our specialty.

Leave your holiday stress at home, don’t bother with the grocery list, huge meals and that taunting pile of dishes to do. We’ll handle it. We offer tasty options for breakfast, lunch and dinner between the Alpine Inn Restaurant and the Snorting Elk Cellar. How does a classic Bavarian meal sound? What about a stone fired pizza? Or just some good home cooking? We’ve got it all, and we don’t mind taking care of the dishes one bit!

4. Bring your crew!

The ultimate family holiday fun zone is right here at Crystal Mountain Hotels. We’ve got “S’mores Round the Firepit”, Skiing with Santa, a Christmas Eve Candle Light Service and a fireworks extravaganza on New Year’s Eve. Our priority is to help enhance the quality time you spend with your loved ones on your winter escape.

5. You just can’t beat a night at “The Elk”.

If you’ve been to the Snorting Elk Cellar, you can’t deny that we offer the ideal après ski atmosphere. We’ve got 18 beers on tap, stone fired pizza, monstrous and fresh baked cookies. We offer cozy Austrian ambience and you can’t miss our legendary shotski. We throw the best parties including Polyesta Fiesta and Amateur Ski and Snowboard Film Night and all the other AMAZING parties in between, our bar is a must on your visit to Crystal! We promise it will keep you coming back to Crystal Mountain for years to come!
