Skiing and Snowboarding
Crested Butte Mountain Resort has a natural character that is both distinctive and exhilarating for any ability level. From the abundant wide open green and blue groomed trails to more advanced long cruisers and the famous extreme limits of the North Face and Headwall, Crested Butte has it all.
We offer 15 chairlifts with the ability to carry 20,020 people per hour, covering 1,547 acres. Crested Butte's peak stands at 12,162 feet and our highest chairlift reaches a vertical of 11,875 feet. With 121 trails, we offer 26% beginner, 57% intermediate, 14% advanced and 3% expert terrain.
“Out of the 1,547 acres of terrain, there are numerous bowls, chutes, glades and cliffs, but half of Crested Butte’s terrain suits beginners and intermediates. This variety creates a snow sports enthusiast’s playground for all ages.” –Krista Crabtree, OntheSnow.com
