Crested Butte

  Crested Butte gets blanketed by greater than average snow each snow season. Crested Butte is a mid-size ski hill having a roughly average drop from top to bottom when you compare it to other ski areas in the region. The 16 good ski lifts here will get you up the slope effectively. With the skiing land being 1,167 acres you will never be without terrain. The height difference of 2,775 feet is plenty for a great top to bottom run. All in all there are 121 slopes
    to select from; it's a delightful range. Crested Butte has lots of different ski slopes and many different ski lifts. This ski resort has a much lower than average ratio of demanding ski runs and a much higher than average proportion
of intermediate or beginner ski slopes. Crested Butte is a magnificent place for the whole family with scores of easy ski slopes. The beautiful snow here gets very deep, 25 feet every year, and that is one of the greatest marks of this ski area. Crested Butte has a magnificent pick of ski slopes to match all abilities; it won’t leave anyone bored. The mountaintops of Colorado in the winter are a pleasant site for skiing and snowboarding. No need to hunt hard  
for accommodations, but you'd better reserve prior to departure as these accommodations fill up quick. Whether you're skiing or snowboarding, this is a vicinity with plenty of spots for that. The winter scenery of the Colorado peaks and the good feeling of cruising down the ski slopes have loads of snow people coming here. Getting a bit of great exercise and just hanging out with your skiing pals will make you feel great.
