      February 3-10, 2024

      Experience the Funky Flair and BE WILD

      The Crested Butte Ski Resort is well known for their variety of ski and snowboard terrain, abounding friendliness, and the laid-back culture. 39% of Crested Butte Mountain caters to beginners and also intermediates!

      Comments from Bob Mackey, Trip Leader: "On a recent a trip to Denver, I decided to mosey down to Crested Butte to check out the lodging/resort area and the town. It was well-worth the effort. The Elevation Hotel and Spa is a wonderful facility with numerous social areas, a large work-out area and spa, indoor and outdoor hot tubs and nicely appointed large hotel rooms. DO NOT let the resorts advertisement of extreme skiing scare you off. There are plenty of Blue and Green Runs to make anyone “dog tired” by the end of the day."

      Don't miss this opportunity with Bob "Snow Dog" Mackey!
