In college I made my first trek to Colorado with some girlfriends. A quick road trip. From Illinois.  In a beat up old Fiat car… four of us and all our luggage.  I’m surprised the thing made it up into the mountains. But it did.

We drove to visit a friend of one of the girls who was going to school near Crested Butte.  I still remember driving there.  I was in awe.  It was quite overwhelming.  I never in my life had seen such tremendous beauty.  The “kids” who lived there who were with us kept laughing at me.  I was sad for them because they didn’t appreciate all the amazing beauty.  I still get choked up about it.  And I promised myself that some day I would go back.  20 years later and I still haven’t been back. Until now…hopefully.

When the folks from USA Family guides told us about this promotion I didn’t hesitate.  Yes, I have a chance to win a trip back there (so do you if you’re a blogger). So read on about their fabulous lodging and tremendous end of season ski deals.  But I’ll tell you know, as beautiful as those pictures below look, they are not even CLOSE to how gorgeous this area is.  Heaven on earth… seriously.

Thanks for looking!
