Top Tips:

In the coldest winter months of January and February you'll be grateful for a resort with South facing ski areas, which offer some welcome light and warmth in the depths of a mountain winter.

In the warmest spring months of April and May, you'll find the best (ie not slushy) riding is to be had on the cooler and shady North facing trails.

Crested Butte rating for snow quality is 4 stars out of 5 overall
