Lift tickets and lessons
If you're only going for a few days it's worth thinking about getting tickets which allow you to take one day off. You may be able to buy lift tickets online at a discount, at least 1 week prior to your visit.
Alpine skiing rentals
We tend to go to Peak Sports, which is located right on the mountain, just by the lifts. There's also a fun new outfit called Black Tie Skis, who deliver straight to the house! This appeals to my lazy side, but we haven't tried it yet. If you do, please let us know!
Anything else from snow shoes, mountain bikes and bask country skis go to the Alpineer. If they don't have it they'll know who does!
Our favorites include but are not limited to:
Secret Stash - pizza
Lo-Bar - Sushi and cocktails - you may feel you're back in the city!
Princess Wine Bar - Pre/post-dinner drinks
Dogwood - Great Cocktails, great space!
Marchitelli's Gourmet Noodle - Consistently good since they revamped a few years ago.
Izzys Deli - for breakfast (970) 349-5630
McGill's - for breakfast (970) 349-5240
Camp4 Coffee - for that caffeine hit
For up to the minute local weather try the Crested Butte Avalanche Centre.
