“Tops! I see why this is rated #1. Every time I return to the Grand Lodge I feel very welcomed. From the greeting by the bellman, to the prompt front desk service, to clean, comfortable large rooms, it is the best of the mountain. I love the Grand Lodge is so closed to the ski lift, biking trails, restaurants and shops. The mountain express bus is great for a quick trip down the mountain to the town of CB. Try the restaurant for breakfast, and evening adult beverages by the fire. I rate the Grand Lodge 5 stars!”

Feeling The Rocky Mountain High at 11,000 ft. 

Today we blazed trails up and around Irwin, near Crested Butte, at sunset. Hours later, still feeing truly “high” from the beauty and peacefulness of the mountains.  Another reason to love Colorado!
