They have 24 feet of snow, an 84" base and virtually no lift lines; why? because they are hard to get to and pretty hard core skiing; even the ones with the silly looking fashionable gear can ski. this is an out of the way outpost of the western city ski resort but a unique combination of a big mountain,...

Very close to the slopes in the basement of the Treasury building.My wife did 3 days of lessons in a sit ski.Her instructor Richard was wonderful as were the volunteers. Check in was easy.The staff was wonderful.The only problem is the resort could do a better job of snow removal.There is a slight incline right near the building.It could be... More

Amazing resort a long way from anything. Hadn't been since my youth and my memories did not fail me. Even on the busiest weekend of the year the snow was far superior to anything near the front range. Lots of places to eat, all for less than your average mega area.. Our biggest issue, and I hate to highlight it... More

Hello Tamra, Thank you for your detailed review. I am sorry to hear that your son was delayed on the chairlifts, not once, but twice during your stay. Our Mountain Ops Team has been working around the clock to help address any issues that may have caused the delays. In regards to the lift ticket voucher, I will bring this... More

Crested Butte is the best snow ski mountain in Colorado. I have been going there since 1979 and it has been just perfect. Normally we spend there New Year's Eve and stay for a whole week. Highly recommended. Very exclusive and never crowded. Do not hesitate to go there.

We were fortunate to travel to Crested Butte after a very generous snow fall. It made our skiing experience a very positive one. I decided to take a lesson on our first day, and had a very experienced instructor (Michelle) who was a wealth of knowledge and an incredible instructor. The bus system from town to the resort worked out... More

We had been skiing with another couple for 3 weeks in Vail,Beaver Creek and Telluride and decided to try out Crested Butte for 10 days at the end. Crested Butte is much smaller than the others and much harder to get to, but the reward is that you have the place to yourself.A lift line is a rarity. The mountain... More

Hi ianh65, Thank you for your review. That sounds like a fun trip! Located at the end of the road in the wintertime, Crested Butte definitely strives to make up for it's slightly more remote location by providing the epitome of a ski town/destination. I am happy to hear that you had excellent snow, convenient lodging and found downtown Crested... More

This was my first trip to CB to ski and I absolutely loved the resort. Great steeps, alot of nice groomers to play on the corduroy, and a good mixture of bumps thrown in.

We visited this time to the mountain resort to just take in Alpine ski energy. We stayed at the resort last time in town, they have a free shuttle to take up and down from the town or vice a versa. Love the shopping and elevation spa on mountain if your not into the sports thing. Great different view of... More

This is always a great place to ski but it's been even better this year with the unvelievable amounts of snow. It snowed 4 ft in the five days we were on the mountain. The atmosphere and the people are great. Certainly one of the best ski towns in Colorado.
