There are some pretty important things that make for a successful group ski trip, such as skiable acres and annual snowfall, but everyone knows that the town where your resort is located can be the icing on the cake that takes your trip from really good to fantastic.
The folks at Powder Magazine understand this and decided to let their readers vote for their favorite village in their 2014 Ski Town Throwdown. Sixteen teams in four regions were pitted against one another in a basketball-style bracket and the readers voices were heard. In a nail-biting final round in which Eagle Crest Ski Area in Alaska was pitted against Crested Butte, Colorado, the Colorado town which dubs itself “the last great Colorado Ski Town” came out on top.
When you dig in its pretty easy to understand why they have such a loyal fanbase. With the Santa Ski Crawl, restaurants to satisfy any appetite, the January Songwriters Festival, and a slew of other activities to try, it’s pretty easy to see why there are so many loyal Crested Butte fans out there.
And when you add in the 1500+ skiable acres, 2775 foot vertical drop, and 300 inches of annual snowfall, Crested Butte becomes pretty darn attractive.
Ski Daddy was just in Crested Butte this week and reports that the conditions are awesome. He will be happy to set your group up with a ski trip with top notch accommodations and the chance to experience all Crested Butte has to offer for yourself.
