There are great views regardless of which unit you are staying in. Having a private hot tub is always nice to relax in, especially after a day on the slopes in the winter, or hiking or mountain biking in the summer.
Crystal Forest is also very close to the outdoor skating rink.
When you are walking into the Village stop by the Ice Cream/Chocolate Shop, it's amazing!
Amenity-wise, most of the units have private hot tubs, all have fire places and there is a common fire-pit in the center of the complex, but you won't find things like a fitness room, pool or sauna here (although, the summer-only Sun Peaks pool is just 300 meters down the road).
There are ground floor and upper-level units in the complex, both of which are just fine if you are a group of adults or have older kids, but if you are travelling with an infant and all of the associated gear (strollers, play-pens, etc.), you will likely want to try to get one of the ground floor units. Packing all of your belongings from the underground parking to the upper-level units is a little cumbersome, but by the time you add a baby and all their stuff, it's a little more than I would take on again, given the choice.
The private hot tub was out on a tiny balcony and took up the whole thing. While it was a little bit awkward at first due to the hot tub being *right* outside the door, it added to the cozy experience and became our favorite part! The kitchen was small, but fully stocked - from utensils, pots/pans, dishes, and appliances to complimentary coffee/tea - they even supply plastic cups to use in the hot tub! We had an AUX cable, so we could use the ipod dock to listen to music, and inside the coffee table were games ("Headbandz", "Trivial Pursuit", etc.). The only TV was in the bedroom and there was the best collection of movies to choose from. For me personally, I found the bed to be too hard, but I'm one of those people who needs super soft beds, so most people wouldn't have noticed. We walked everywhere in the village as we were so close, and parking there is underground making it super convenient.
Overall, it was an amazing weekend. Can't wait to stay again!
PS - must be okay with stairs.
