The Town Of Crested Butte
We fell in love with Crested Butte the first time we came to do some back country skiing in 2000. Since then the town hasn't stopped growing on us. Every year, we discover new restaurants, new slopes, new hikes and, best of all, new friends in what has to be one of the most welcoming communities we know. Whether you come here to ski, to hike, to bike or just to relax, there is always something going on here. The day is yours for the taking!

Any time of year the mountains are beautiful and challenging. Just a 10 minute ride on the free shuttle bus that stops almost outside the door, the main mountain resort never stops improving. Activities on the mountain are boundless and open to all skill levels.
Excursion & Activities
There's so much to do here during Spring, Summer, Fall or Winter. Here are a few trips we've made in the past that might tempt you:
- Hike to Blue Lake and camp overnight (2 days)
- Drive to Santa Fe and Taos (4/5 days)
- Hike/Bike to Aspen (2 days)
Spring & Summer
- Wildflower Festival
- 4th of July Parade
Take a guided hike with our friends at Colorado Backcountry.
With Fall come the amazing colors. One of our favorite trips is to rent a car and drive over Kebler Pass (you can bike it if you are feeling really fit). This collection of aspens is said to represent the worlds largest living organism.
