It is a little harder to get to than many of the other Colorado resorts but is well worth the journey. The historic town is one of the best-preserved Victorian mining towns in Colorado, and the ski area is uncrowded with some stunning scenery. Crested Butte is ideal for those interested in great skiing in the day and relaxation in the evenings.

Don't be fooled by the size of the resort - “The Butte” is famous for it’s challenging in-bounds black terrain and some great off-piste areas. Extreme Limits is an aptly named area of chutes, trees and drops guaranteed to give you some heart-stopping challenges. However, more than 80% of the runs are classed as beginner or intermediate so there is plenty to keep those less inclined to throw themselves off cliffs entertained. In addition, the uncrowded slopes mean that families with children learning to ski are very well catered for.

"An historic town and some of the steepest terrain in the US makes Crested Butte a great option for a ski pilgrimage – for those adventurous types combining Crested Butte with Telluride could well be the dream ski holiday."
