This was our first time to Crested Butte and we hope it won't be our last. The Grand Lodge was the perfect choice for easy access to the mountain and to the town of Crested Butte-free town shuttle which runs every 15 minutes. The hotel buffet breakfast is a great way to start the day and the cookies in the afternoon were a lovely treat-a special thank you to Nick who always seemed to be there with cookies fresh from the oven when we returned from a day of skiing or strenuous shopping! Other comments about the hotel-great outdoor pool/hot tub, very friendly and attentive staff, our standard king room was a comfortable size with a large under the counter refrigerator, jacuzzi tub, an old TV -we didn't care but some might mind not having a flat screen. Now to the skiing... I have been to many ski areas in the west and Crested Butte is now my favorite! The mountain has something for everyone, yet is very compact and easy to navigate. My friend and I spent most of our time on the gentle, perfectly groomed greens and blues (a special thank you to our ski instructor Mark from New England who helped get us to those blue runs) while our spouses headed to more difficult terrain, but we were able to meet up for lunch on the mountain (Ule's Cabin/ice bar or Paradise) then again for apres ski options at the base area (Avalanche, Butte 66 and 9380-the last 2 have great outdoor options for those perfect blue sky days). Don't miss out on the town-great restaurants, shops and the friendliest people! Dining recommendations: West End (great steak and seafood options), Brick Oven (good pizza, great taps), Eldos Brewery (3 house taps and great burgers), Marchitelli's-excellent italian food (try the chicken or veal parmesan with eggplant or the mix and match pasta options). For breakfast in town don't miss IZZY's, but if you order the pancake be sure there are at least 3 of you sharing-I'm not kidding! Their breakfast sandwiches, wraps and pastries are freshly made and wonderful. While in town don't miss HJ's-handmade hats, Cleavage Candy (cool jewelry) and of course Rocky Mountain Candy Company. Enjoy!
