Friendly staff, decent runs.
Very poor locker situation, and weak/disorganized shuttle operation
Close to my house so easiest to go there, but if I lived closer to Stevens I would go to Stevens instead. Good ski school for kids. Great food at the 2 resturants. Crystal has freindly staff, nice facilities for the most part, but severe lack of lockers for all of your ski stuff. The only lockers are in the bathrooms (too stinky and busy to go in every time you want your stuff) and the rental shop (too crowded and busy with all the rookies). It really surprises me that Crystal wouldn't do a better job with the lockers since they have invested so well in other facilities. It should be obvious since the place is always covered with shoes and stuff laying all over the place.
