Crested Butte is one of my favorite mountain towns for so many reasons. It’s not commercialized like other ski towns. The surrounding mountains are stunning with wildflowers in the summer and aspens with fall colors. There are so many hiking, jeeping, and ATVing during the...More

Hi Dave A, Thank you for writing your review. Crested Butte is known as "Colorado's Last Great Ski Town" and I believe that your acknowledgement of our lack of commercialization is the core reason behind this reputation. In fact, downtown Crested Butte is one of...More

Hi Ron90R, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. One of my favorite aspects of Crested Butte is that the crowds over holiday weekends can be smaller than other resorts, which helps maintain snow conditions and keeps you skiing rather than waiting...More

We absolutely love skiing here. The mountain has something for everyone, from long, easy greens to some extreme terrain for those more adventuous types. The town is the best ski town around, great for relaxing after a day on the slopes.More
