What are your rates?
We charge $2,950 plus utilities and tax for a typical non-holiday three night winter weekend.  Inquire about mid- or full week rates, summer rates.  A non-refundable deposit is required to hold your date.  If snow conditions make the rental impossible, the rental may be moved into the next season OR another available weekend at No Additional Charge

Wow, that seems kind of expensive!
Not really, the house easily sleeps 20-30 people, bringing the rate to less than $25-35/ night per person.  THere is no better deal on the mountain

How big is this place, anyway?
5,000 square feet, with 5 large bedrooms, a sleeping loft, large kitchen, 3 full bathrooms, large living room and den, game room & more.  There's plenty of room for everyone!

How do I get there?
In your car. Once you get to the base, just jump on the Gold Hills chairlift and walk 200 feet to the house.  Bring boots!

How do I get my stuff up to the house?
We will haul your gear and food up to the house when you arrive and down to the base when you leave

Can I have ??? people up there? 
The house is big, and large church groups and youth organizations can and do rent frequently

What do I do the day of the rental?
Drive up to Crystal Mountain.  We will meet you at the base and haul your gear up to the house.  Walk over to the chairlift, ride it up for free, and walk 200 feet to the front door of the house, and have a great weekend!  We will return at the end of your stay to transport your gear to the base

What is there to do up there?
Outside: Skiing, of course VIA Crystal Mountains Gondola or 11 chairlifts providing access to over 2,600 acres of terrain. Snowshoeing also offers a great low impact alternative.  Hills of varying steepness all around the house offer sledding for every age group. Restuarants at the resort include: Campbell Basin Lodge, Summit House Restaurant, the Bullwheel, the Cascade Grill, or grab a snack from the Glacier Express Window or The Chinook Café

Inside: 3 TVs, Direct TV, DVD players, Bose stereo AND pool table provide plenty of entertainment.  The 8 person hot tub is great after a long day of skiing, as is kicking back in front of a roaring fire in one of the two large native rock fireplaces.  The full kitchen and outdoor gas grill make it easy and affordable to feed the whole crew (ski lodge food = expensive!).  Summer is a great time for an affordable group retreat or family getaway.  The area is very quiet in the warmer months and offers excellent hiking including easy access to the famous Pacific Crest trail.  A hiker in decent shape can easily hike to the summit of Crystal Mountain for stunning views of Mt. Rainier.  For the more relaxed hiker, several small trails near the house offer mountain views of waterfalls, creeks, and the abandoned mine that gave Gold Hills its name
