Take Your Family to Ski Crested Butte

crested butte CO review

My favorite family ski destination--Crested Butte--is gearing up for another great season of family fun. This destination resort opens on November 27th. Are you ready?

Here's why we loved the resort:

For the 2013-2014 season, the kick off theme is "A Blizzard of Oz." And get this, on opening day there is free skiing for all! “With Ski Free being such a tradition here in Crested Butte and the excitement that it brings to the mountain on opening day, we wanted to offer the promotion again this year,” says Scott Clarkson, vice president of marketing and sales for the resort. “It is a great opportunity for guests and community members to get a few runs in early season, at no charge, making it an awesome day for all!”
