Alta Crystal Resort Amenities - Evening Activities

Many guests tell us our evening activities are the highlight of their trip!  Guests love getting together to talk and share stories about their days’ adventures.  We hope you can join us for some or all of our events while you’re here.


We usually have activities every night of the week during July and August, and on weekends and select other nights in June. All activities, except the barbecues, are FREE. 

Here’s a SAMPLE SCHEDULE* to help you plan:

Sunday:  Delicious barbecue in the field.  Click here.
Monday:  Mt. Rainier movie and welcome reception.
Tuesday:  Bonfire in the field with s’mores.
Wednesday:  Wilderness Trivia night with prizes for everyone.
Thursday:  Delicious barbecue in the field. Click here. 
Friday:  Games night in the field with snacks. (Movie night starting mid-August as it gets dark by around 8:30 p.m.)

*  We try to stay with the above sample schedule most weeks, but it may change due to weather or other events, so please check with us if you’re trying to be here for a specific event.  For Sunday, July 2 we will have a Barbeque and our Annual July 4th Picnic Menu and bonfire on Tuesday.


We have bonfires most Saturday nights in the spring and fall, depending upon occupancy.  Check with us for the specific schedule for the dates of your stay.


We have free activities every weekend on Friday and Saturday nights through April 16, 2017:

Friday:  Ski or other movie in the lodge with popcorn
Saturday: Bonfire in the field with s’mores.

We have activities every night during the holidays, and these are free to all our guests. 

We still have bonfires (really cool in the snow) with hot chocolate and s’mores (of course)
Our cookie decorating parties and crafts parties are always a big hit
Karaoke anyone?  Our karaoke parties are like a giant sing-along, totally unintimidating, and we’ve had kids as young as 2 get up and sing.
Trivia Night:  a great way to learn about this area and win fun prizes.  This is one our past guests always request.
Movie nights:  We show ski movies, plus other movies we think everyone will enjoy, with popcorn, candy and drinks, of course.
