For 40 years skiers have enjoyed the mountain that's known as "the cult capital of winter sports." And while it may be "remote," as one reader beefs, Crested Butte's isolation is the key to its Alps-like beauty.
Crested Butte had a tough season last year-and it shows in the survey results, where the off-the-beaten-path Colorado resort plummeted from No. 11 to No. 30. A variety of factors came into play, namely lack of sufficient snow.
Skiers and boarders are in for a banner weekend at Sunshine Village as the popular Banff Ski Resort is digging out from an intense snowstorm that has left 22 cms of fresh snow in the past 24 hours and over 44 cms in the past 3 days.
