Crested Butte offers lots of outdoor activities. Downhill bike park at resort and hundreds of miles of cross country trails. Lots of hiking, fishing and sight seeing also.

Good ski area could use some TLC by the new ownership - lets hope that Vail Associates does not try to make this ski area another Vail.
