I came to Crested Butte with a Veterinary ski association. I've spent years skiing Colorado and this was one of the best experiences. Everyone is very pleasant and eager to help. We had new snow almost everyday. The terrain is very challenging. The town is updated classic old Colorado mining town. The restaurants vary from funky to fine. The Lodge at Mountaineer Square was unbelievably convenient. The two bedroom suite was plush, roomy and pricey, but well worth it.
