Hi motorman1256, Thank you for your review. Crested Butte Mountain Resort's elevation and aspects are certainly two factors that help us maintain great snow throughout the season, but it can be tough to acclimate from sea level with short notice. Some personal suggestions if you...More

Everyone was so down about the amount of snow in Colorado this year. Somehow CB managed to provide plenty of groomed runs this year. I ran into zero ice, and it snowed 6 inches the last 2 days. Love CB.More

The skiing was ok. Mother Nature has not been good to Crested Butte this year. The runs are groomed, many of them, the bumps are big and hard, with some rocks and trees. If you love me groomers, it is great!More
