Hello from Snowy Crested Butte,
Conde Nast Magazine’s Reader’s Choice Survey for the Best Places to Ski and Stay in North America 2009 resulted in a great ranking for Crested Butte. Readers ranked Crested Butte 12th overall. This is great news and evidence of the impact of our resort owners and their ability to run a resort.
Ski resorts were rated on a five-point scale: excellent, very good, good, fair, or poor on the criteria of Terrain & Conditions, Lifts & Lines, Après-Ski/Activities, Local Dining, and Local Ambience; ski hotels were rated excellent, very good, good, fair, or poor on the criteria of Rooms, Service, Dining/Food, Location, Overall Design, and Activities/Facilities. Criterion scores, which represent the percentage of respondents rating a ski resort or hotel excellent or very good, were averaged to determine the overall score. Only ski resorts and hotels that received a required minimum number of responses were eligible for inclusion in these rankings.
