Being from the UK we have been doing the grand tour of all the Colorado resorts over the last few years.. having been to Copper, Winter Park and others.. Crested Butte blew us away. Is it worth the 10 hour flight from the UK, the 4 hours transfer.. hell yea...Is the awesome snow worth the effort, are the friendly local worth a visit, without a doubt the best resort I have EVER been to. Our tour operator screwed up our booking, putting 6 of us in a four bedded apartment, once we reported the problem, the resort staff couldn't do enough to help out, the customer services manager even helped us move our bags to another room!!! You would not get service like that anywhere else!!
We are a large group of boarders, aged from mid 30s to mid 50s from the UK, and were made so welcome.. it's worth the journey.. GO.
