Christmas vacation

I am in the early stages of planning a ski trip for Christmas 2011. We will be skiing before and after Christmas. I have narrowed my choices down to Steamboat and Crested Butte primarily because I feel crowds will be less at these resorts. My 3 kids are beginners and it has been 15 years since my last ski vacation. Also my husband is recovering from ACL/MCL surgery so will not want to be too aggressive. My other question is if we choose Crested Butte would you suggest staying in town or on the Mountain? Any advise would be great!

I dont know about these two resorts but can tell you from experience that if staying in town is 25 min. or more away from the Lifts, I would stay on the Mountain. its always nice to be no more than a mile from the lifts. I like to get there early and take advantage of NO lines.

There are plenty of lodging options in Crested Butte. Slope side or ski-in/ski-out lodging near the base area will give you easy access the lifts and activity area. Condominiums farther from the base provide free shuttle to the main base area.
