My favorite snow town is definitely Crested Butte. If you can work out the financials of course because I'm sure it is crazy expensive to live there! I have been to almost all of the ski areas and resort towns in Colorado. I love Crested Butte for a number of different reasons. First and foremost it is absolutely beautiful. It has a great remote feel to it even though you will be able to find everything you need there or in Gunnison. (In the summer time I believe you can actually get over the mountain pass and get to Telluride which is on the other side of the mountain from Crested Butte-but you may want to research that in more depth). I love the way the dogs run around everywhere and the people in general just seem so happy and friendly. I also really appreciate that the the people in the hospitality industry and the locals in general are very kind and seem genuine. I have never been treated like an annoyance. I also love Breckenridge, Dillon, Summit County but I hate the way I am treated by servers in restaurants, the locals, retail workers, etc. Many of my friends have noticed it as well. Just plain RUDE. As if us tourists or the people from Denver are coming up there and raining on their special mountain life parade. It drives me crazy because most of them would not have a job or be living there if it wasn't for tourists!! I guess that is a rant for another post though. Vail is even worse in that regard in my opinion.

Another really great place to check out is Glenwood Springs. There seem to be a lot of families and people who have "real life" type jobs living there. It is beautiful in it's own right and the gateway to several other gorgeous locations--Aspen, closer to Telluride if you can't live there, etc.

Winter01, I think you mean Aspen, not Telluride.
For winter fun see: Elk Mountains Grand Traverse | An extraordinary 40-mile backcountry ski race between the towns of Crested Butte and Aspen, CO
