Things to do in Colorado
Ski Crested Butte
These uncrowded, powdery Rockies' slopes come minus the icy patches more common to Eastern resorts, making them a resounding hit with tumble-prone kids and adults alike. Tubing, movie, and pizza-dinner evenings keep the young ones entertained, while this historic-mining-town-cum-ski-resort - completely devoid of traffic lights and chain stores - serves to charm the skis right off of adults. Access is via a 5-hour drive southwest of Denver, or just 45 minutes from the Gunnison-Crested Butte Regional Airport (GUC).
