USA, Crystal Mountain, Washington. April 14, 2021

Today, Crystal Mountain announces its partnership with upscale, outdoor hospitality leader Under Canvas to introduce Crystal Sky Camp. Located at 6,000 feet in the shadow of Mount Rainier within National Forest Service land, Crystal Sky Camp is a 20-tent exclusive retreat opening July 2021. This inaugural three-month activation marks the seasonal launch of a three-year collaboration between both hospitality brands. Catering to group adventures of any kind - ranging from corporate retreats to weddings - Crystal Sky Camp is designed to provide guests with an immersive, mountaintop experience with all the comforts of a first-class resort.

"Crystal Mountain is excited to be partnering with Under Canvas to introduce Crystal Sky Camp," said Adam Sutner, Vice President of Business Development for Crystal Mountain. "The combination of the picturesque and expansive beauty of Crystal Mountain, with Under Canvas' expertise to connect guests with the outdoors feels like a winning experience for the adventure minded. This Is going to be a bold and unique adventure for a lucky few"...

Resting directly adjacent to Mount Rainier National Park at a soaring 6,000 ft, Crystal Sky Camp and its 20 safari-inspired tents are accessed via two exhilarating chairlift rides with picturesque views at every turn offering one of the most unique and adventurous arrival experiences. The mountaintop campsite can accommodate up to 50 guests and is designed for group buyout experiences. Safari-style canvas tents, exclusive to the Under Canvas brand, offer plush king-sized beds with luxurious linens, wood floors with rug accents, outdoor and indoor seating options and wood-burning stoves. Bathhouses with private stalls, including hot showers, flushing toilets and sinks are located just steps from each tent. While the great outdoors, friends and family are the best entertainment, all tents do have high speed WIFI to ensure efficiencies for corporate meetings and remote working needs.

Crystal Sky Camp offers the comforts and conveniences of an all-inclusive resort, in a non-typical setting. Guests will enjoy amenities such as:

  • Daily housekeeping and turndown service

  • Access to an expansive main lobby tent
  • Daily meals including breakfast, trail-ready lunch and dinner, as well as beverages
  • Transportation to and from base area
  • A variety of indoor and outdoor camp activities such as giant Jenga, and classic board games
  • Nightly campfires and s'mores
  • Stargazing in the crystal-clear skies above with the camp's very own high-powered telescope

In addition to these daily amenities, guests will also have exclusive use of Crystal Mountain's modern Campbell Basin Lodge; with all of the comforts this implies such as a full-service bar, inclusive meals prepared in its world class kitchen and 10,000 sq. ft. that can be configured to suit the group's needs. Underpinning all of this is each group's dedicated Camp Concierge and support staff.

For those groups looking to elevate their experience to even further heights, upgrades are available. While on site guests can book a wide range of adventurous activities for any skill level, from a two-hour fly-fishing session on a private alpine lake to horseback riding or a guided trek of the Cascades. For the thrill-seekers in the mix, full-day Sky Adventures can be booked pre-arrival. More details on adventure activities can be found here.

While an impressive breakfast, lunch and dinner menu is included in each group's base package, culinary upgrades are available with customizable menus offering distinctive regional flavors and ingredients, developed by the talented and expertly trained culinary team. Groups seeking the likes of mountain-foraged ingredients and Pacific Northwest seafood can arrange this upgrade pre-arrival.

"We are thrilled to be partnering with Crystal Mountain to bring to life this exclusive, alpine adventure retreat," said David DiFalco, Chief Operating Officer at Under Canvas. "In a time where so many are looking to reconnect - be it corporate groups, weddings or reunions - Crystal Sky Camp offers the ideal destination for a memorable outdoor escape."

With nature being the best architect and family, friends, and colleagues being the most enriching entertainment, Crystal Sky Camp is exclusively designed to bring groups together in the best possible way. Group retreats, weddings, and social gatherings of all types will experience a fully curated and customized experience with their buy-out of the on-mountain site. From meetings and creative team breakouts in the great outdoors to a dramatic alpine weddings scape fully equipped with bridal suite options to the ultimate family reunion, Crystal Sky Camp boasts the ideal setting for any group or wedding adventure.

The inaugural season for Crystal Sky Camp runs July 1 - September 31, 2021. For more information and to book a group reservation, please visit

Sales & Marketing: Playing the Long Game

During an economic downturn, it is tempting to slash marketing budgets to make up for lost revenue. But smart hoteliers play the long game, knowing that companies who stay engaged with their customers will be the first to benefit from a rebound. Therefore, now is the time to renew and revamp sales and marketing strategies in order to be ready for what lies ahead. For example, this is a perfect time to refresh website content, social media and SEO.  The same for hotel blogs where content can be updated to give customers inspirational ideas as they begin to travel and meet again. Multimedia assets should also be revised with new photo/video shoots that provide accurate information about how setups, room configurations, and onsite offerings have changed to accommodate safer meetings and social distancing. The June Hotel Business Review will focus on the sales and marketing strategies that some hotels are adopting in anticipation of a recovery in 2021.
