It started out with a 3 hour drive to Crested Butte with kids asking are we there yet on Mar. 5, 2010. I was happy when I was able to say yes we are. The snow gods must have known we were coming because it was snowing when we arrived which made for some great skiing. I love skiing Crested Butte not only for the great mountain it is but because theirs no lift lines not even on Saturday and Sunday. They have a kids terrain park which my two kids loved being able to do some jumps and tricks on their skis. The runs that were groomed were my favorite of course and Crested Butte does a beautiful job of grooming. Most people think Crested Butte is for experts only but they have many runs that are beginner and intermediate and yes they have plenty of expert runs.
We stayed at The Lodge At Mountaineer Square which is slopeside and has condos with a nice pool and hot tub. It's a great place for families because youc an cook complete meals with it's full kiitchen. It's nice and new and sits right at the Village. We enjoyed our stay very much. We looked at The Grand Lodge which is a good value and is a short 100 yard walk to slopes. We also looked at the Elevation Hotel which I highly recommend especially for couples or for families who are not interested in cooking in. (It is a vacation-take mom out to eat). Downstairs at the Elevation at the restaurant 9380 I would recommend the crab macaroni and cheese. It's to die for.
Saturday evening we put the kids in kids night out and they got to enjoy time without mom and dad while tubing and having some great fun. We took this time to do a sleigh ride dinner to Uley's Cabin for a fantastic gourmet dinner. I highly suggest letting me arrange this for you. It's a wonderful experience.
Crested Butte is a fun, family friendly and very affordable ski resort. Contact me and I can help with your Crested Butte Ski Vacation.
We went to Beaver Creek the weekend of Feb. 26, 2010 for some family skiing and tubing fun. We stayed at Bear Paw which is ski in/out. Bear Paw was very convenient and would recommend for families looking for easy access and wanting to get away from it all.
The skiing was great! They have something for everyone and it was not crowded. I personally loved the blue groomed runs. My 9 year old daughter loved the black double diamond runs. My 5 year old son was happy skiing in the trees and my husband along side him. Like I said-something for everyone.
We went to Beaver Creek Village and went tubing. The kids loved it and yes Mom even tried it out. I must say I really enjoyed tubing. It was like being a kid all over again especially with my daughter yelling spin her fast to the gentleman sending us down the run.
Beaver Creek Village has some great shopping, ice rink, tubing, restaurants and I really like the firepits they had by the ice rink. You can sit by the fire and have something to drink while watching the kids ice skate.
Beaver Creek is a great destination for families. I would love to help you with your next Beaver Creek

Valle Nevado is on schedule for the 2010 ski season!
(dates are June 11 to September 24, 2010)
(dates are June 11 to September 24, 2010)
In our close-knit ski industry community, there has been obvious concern about the impacts of the massive Chile earthquake on the resort community. Fortunately, there is good news - most resorts have been minimally affected.
In Valle Nevado, damage is reported to be only cosmetic or incidental ~ things like broken windows and lamps.
Tourism is a key component of Chile's recovery and we know our partners and friends at all the Chile ski resorts are working hard to make the necessary repairs before the start of the South American ski season. We're hard at work, too, to bring you a great Chile ski experience.
