Breckenridge, Crested Butte or Steamboat

I'm planning a ski trip for 4 couples without kids. All intermediate skiers looking for a nice place with some nightlife. What would you recommend between Breck, Crested Butte or Steamboat? Thanks

breck is easiest to get to from denver and gives you easy access to copper, a basin, keystone, vail and beaver creek. there is great shopping in dillon/frisco. tons of restaurants and bars.
steamboat is a ski/working ranch town which gives it a unique flavor. there are hot springs on the edge of town for soaking. again plenty of restaurants and bars. people take their fun very seriously in that town!
the butttes will take you hours to get to and is a small extremely isolated, beautiful town. hard mountain!
every ski area has some nightlife - of your 3 breck probably has the most.
without kids i think steamboat would be an outstanding choice for you.

If you can fly into Hayden, my vote would be for Steamboat - cute town, ton of intermediate skiing. If flying into Denver, then go to Breck.

Crested Butte is phenomenal, but it will take forever to drive there and there is limited intermediate skiing.
