Quote: Crested Butte is one of the true Old West ski towns left in Colorado, and who knows how much longer this will be true! This is a resort that EVERYONE should at least experience once... and I know you'll go back.

Check for music at Eldo's and the Princess Wine Bar. One night I was there, they had reggae, and the other night, there was bluegrass. Bar-hop the main strip--there are lots of great local folks who'll make sure you have a good time. Don't forget to buy them a beer!

The food and service were excellent. This is not a bar-scene kind of restaurant. They appeared to have a more relaxed dining option downstairs and a more formal option upstairs. Steak, rare tuna, and vodka drinks were what was found around our table. It's a great place to go when you need a good dinner.

Crested Butte is one of my favorite resorts in Colorado. The snow this season has been amazing, and with the Old West feel and the total hippie vibe, it makes you want to get in touch with your eclectic roots! I highly recommend giving this mountain a try.
