Mates and Rehne Vanek, along with the rest of the staff, bid you a warm welcome to Silver Skis Chalet. This is our home and we love sharing it with our guests. Crystal Mountain is a magical place. We invite you to experience it yourself. Each season is unique. Feel like royalty swimming in our heated pool while snowflakes fall upon your head, gaze at the stars, enjoy a glass of wine, connect with your loved ones while preparing dinner or playing a board game, build a snowman, take a hike, have a picnic… the possibilities are endless! We have tried to anticipate your needs, and we are always happy to do our best to accommodate your wishes. We live onsite and are always available should you need us.
Rehne Copeland-Vanek is from Louisiana and knows what true hospitality entails. She worked on cruise ships for 12 years and has a passion for people and travel.
“I have spent my entire life traveling the world… but the moment I visited Crystal Mountain, I knew this place was special! I am truly blessed to call Silver Skis my home and I welcome you to experience the magic yourself.” – Rehne
