In the British Columbia interior, Big White offers a broad spectrum of lodging options for visiting skiers and snowboarders. The Crystal White Inn epitomizes convenience, and guests can save a few dollars by booking online.
The White Crystal Inn sits slopeside at Big White and features true ski-in/ski-out lodging. It is tucked adjacent to the upper terminal of Lara’s Gondola for easy access to Happy Valley activities, such as ice skating, tubing, and ice climbing. The inn also sits a one-minute walk from the Village Centre Mall, which houses lift tickets, ski school, retail, rentals, and cafes. It also has quick access to the Bullet Chair and the tunnel to drop to Ridge Rocket and Snow Ghost chairs.

Rooms come in a variety of configurations, including standards, kitchenettes, lofts, and one- or two-bedrooms. All units contain spacious bathrooms, and the large rooms offer plenty of space for drying out wet gear and flopping with a laptop to connect to the Internet via wireless.
Free underground parking keeps the car from getting buried with snow, while Sante Grille offers breakfast, lunch, dinner, and drinks. A small outdoor hot tub, sauna, and ski storage are available, too.
