We stayed here for an early season ski trip in November. We booked a 2 bedroom through the website and received a military discount. For 3 nights, this dropped the price to under $1k total.
Upon arrival, we were checked in promptly, upgraded to a 3BR and shown the amenities. The amenities is where Crystal peak falls short. The pool, bowling alley, and other items of interest are at the sister property down the street. This makes for a short walk, but annoying.
The room is where Crystal Peak shines. Fully appointed kitchen, dining room. And spacious bedrooms. The master shower offered a steam function, and the balcony gave great views of the mountains. There was ample room to spread out and relax.
The other best features are the closeness to the independence lift and Breck Connect Gondola.
All in all, excellent place to stay!
Needed a trip to the mountains to celebrate our wedding anniversary with the fall colors. Last minute decision so many places booked. Unfortunately, when we checked in we discovered the pool and hit tub were closed. Upon inquiring we were told we had access to One Ski Hill place below. Which while on the same road is a few very large buildings down and entirely inconvenient to be going over there in our swimsuits in the cold mountain evening air. I should have been notified of this and could have just booked one ski hill. For the price I paid for this room and location we should have been kindly informed. Bait and switch. Might explain why the place feels like a ghost town.
