“Summertime fun on the Mountain”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Ski resorts have come up with all sorts of family friendly attractions for summer travelers, and CB is no exception. The lifts are all running for mountain bikers and hikers who want to head down the mountain, and there are all sorts of bounce houses and zip lines for the rest of the kids. CB is known for its exceptional mountain biking, and the resort has a wide variety of varying levels of skill, and lets not forget its also known as the wildflower capital of Colorado, so be sure to bring your camera to take lots of pictures of the flora and fauna, as well as the spectacular views from the top of the mountain.

“Best Kept Secret”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

This is such a great ski resort. There is so much variety and it never seems to be crowded. I am a little hesitant to say what a great place it is as I hope it will never be as popular as the crowded Front Range resorts. Every time we ski here we are so glad we did.

“Excellent Family Spring Break!!”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

We found excellent lodging at the Plaza in Crested Butte. Our large two bedroom condo was just a three minute walk to the lifts! We enjoyed the service, the hot tub and especially appreciated the covered parking!

“Cosmic Cruisers Dog Sledding”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Very fun experience for kids and adults. Dave the owner was extremely nice and kind to the kids. The kids LOVED being able to mush (run the dog sled). The 1 hour course we rode was beautiful and pleasant, not rough dog sledding at all. The dogs were amazing! A highlight of our trip!

“great slopes,great citizens”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

great ski slopes with very polite staff,skiers and boarders.Stayed in town and drove to the slopes,drive was straight shot,only 10 minutes approx.The resort will even hold your skis and poles over night for only $5,which was very convenient.Elk street is tiny , but with adequate food choices and no parking problem during spring break.Front tire Got stuck in Ice, AAA and Onstar quoted 1 to 2 hours response time .Contacted local police and they excused them selves and referred us to local towing C&B who quoted $250 to pull us out.Several locals stopped to help and a nice young man volunteered to yank us out with his truck and tow belt,thank you Roman!
