“Great ski resort & town!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013 via mobile

Great ski resort! The snow / conditions were amazing. The bus transportation was a great way to go in town and not have to drive. Everyone from the staff at the resort to the locals were extremely nice and friendly.

“Great mountain for beginners & expert skiers.”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Very reasonably priced accomodations of various types from condos, to hotels, to houses for rent.
Food on the mountain very reasonable, you could have lunch for under $ 15.00 unlike many other resorts.
Great little downtown area with art galleries galore, a wide variety of dining establishments for all types of budgets.
Super convenient free bus transportation system from mountain resort to downtown.

“This town is what vacations are about.”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

The town of Crested Butte is a great trip even if you don't plan a thing. Sit on a bench in town and enjoy your coffee. Take a blanket and sprawl out with a picnic in one of the beautiful parks. Views are free, you never have to get in your car once you arrive and the vibe in town is laid back and friendly. This is a great place for a family to not be in a hurry and throw rocks in a river or watch beavers build dams.

“Crested Butte Mountain Resort-only 4 high speed lifts”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

CBMR is a nice family ski area with only 4 high speed detachable quad lifts to service the ski area.
It is almost like a museum of old lifts bought to show what the history of skiing was like in the "old days." Many of these ancient double chair lifts never (or seldom) operate, but they're there to see. The Teocalli lift is of particular historic vaue I assume, because it simply sits idle.
CBMR also has an incredibly large amount of double black, extreme skiing for the ultra advanced who want to avoid the Gold Link and Painter Boy lifts. Unfortuately, extreme skiers have to access many of the double blacks by an ancient "T" bar lift...have fun.
If you have a choice between CBMR and Telluride, go to the latter resort.
One other absolute inconvenience with CBMR is flying to Gunnison Airport; especially if it is on United Express operated by Republic Airlines. Count on being late or cancelled with United Express.
