We spent two nights in the Pinehurst condos. It was a one bedroom condo that had been recently updated. Very well-appointed and the service was excellent. There is one on-site restaurant that has good food. There is a market that serves beverages,pizza,salads and sandwiches. And there's a wonderful Spa, pool and workout facility. I would come back to Crystal Mountain...

I don't ski anymore so can't comment on in-season experiences, but off-season it's a fabulous place for a spa weekend. We had a lovely room with kitchenette which made snacking and breakfast easier. The spa was incredible. They run specials occasionally and give discounts to locals! LOVE this place.

This was our first time at Crystal Mountain, and our first time skiing as a family. (We have three boys 6yrs, and twins at 4.5yrs) Besides the reviews I read, I wasn't sure what to expect from the resort or the overall experience... and when dealing with young boys who have never skied, I went in with low expectations!

So I've decided to write another review because we have been many times and have stayed at many different locations. We've stayed at (from most expensive to least expensive) Mountain top (sleeps 10), Cottages (sleeps 6-9), Kinlochen(sleeps up to 8), Inn at the Mountain (sleeps 4), and Hamlet(sleeps 4). My favorite by far are the cottages. We love #315, Cattail....

We love Crystal Mountain. The slopes are long enough for for kids. The lifts are easy to get on and off. They take good care of the mountain. The village is fun. The outdoor grill (weekends) is fun and indoors it's easy to get food and find a table. I do wish there was more outdoor seating on warm days.

My family and I visited Crystal Mtn this past weekend and had a great time! We stayed at a condo across from the slopes that was ideal for our family of four. The slopes were icy due to the heat but we got some snow each day that helped tremendously. None of the runs are very long but we didn't...

Spent 1/2 day on the slopes which was plenty for a new skier that came along. Not a lot of green (easy) runs, but great blue and black runs. Well groomed runs. The place gets better and better. I have great memories coming here as a kid with the family and now creating memories with my kids.
