Announcing our Caption Crested Butte grand prize winner
First off, we’d like to thank so many of you for captioning Crested Butte and entering to win a ski trip to “Colorado’s last great ski town.” Jamie M. of Oklahoma was drawn as the winner of a five-night, six-day ski vacation that she can redeem this season or next!
As many of you already know, a Crested Butte ski vacation is like no other, which is why it attracts a certain type of traveler – someone who’s looking for a unique, beautiful experience in an authentic ski town. Crested Butte may lack the convenience of Colorado’s I-70 resorts, but it makes up for it with its spunky individualism. The aesthetics of this place – the rugged Mt. Crested Butte that towers over the ski area; the quaint Victorian town; and the spectacular surrounding mountains – are enough reasons to make the journey. But the smaller details – like the charm of Elk Avenue, the fantastic dining and nightlife, and the unique ski terrain – make a Crested Butte ski vacation truly one-of-a-kind.
We wish we could send everyone to experience this incredible destination, so we’ve put together a few of our best Crested Butte deals to help you get there this season or next. Get your 4th night/4th day free this March and April, or plan ahead and save 30% on lodging during the 2014/2015 ski season when you book by August 15, 2014.
