We are looking for a ski resort that has enough greens for beginner skiers to keep them comfortable and having fun while they build confidence. Is Crested Butte a good resort for tween beginners? Thank you for any advice

There is plenty of green, you will love Crested Butte. It was my first place to ski almost 28 years ago, no experience, no lessons, this is a great place to learn and develope your skill.
