About the Ski Resort

The ski area is located at the base of Mount Last and was originally developed by a local family as a small ski hill for the people of Westbank.

The ski resort at Crystal Mountain was opened on December 9, 1967 by Pat and Allan McLeod. It was then called Last Mountain Ski Resort.

At the 30th anniversary of the resort, in 1997, there was considerable excitement and discussions started regarding the development of the resort with a year-round expansion, based on its location as the closest hill to Kelowna and as the closest Okanagan ski resort to Vancouver.

In 1992 the ski area was sold to Crystal Mountain Resorts Ltd. The ski area name was changed to Crystal Mountain to remind people of the snow -- something bright and fun.

Since the beginning, the resort offered both day skiing and night skiing to allow for evening fun and training to families interested in beginner and intermediate skiing.
