Summer Chairlift Rides

Crested Butte Summer Chairlift Rides

There’s nothing like the view from the top of Mt. Crested Butte. On a bluebird day, you can gaze down on the town of Crested Butte, look out toward the old town site of Gothic (a mining camp turned research area) or take in the entire Gunnison Valley. Plus, with a ride on the Silver Queen or Red Lady Express, you can do it all without the work of hiking! From the top of the Silver Queen, options include hiking to the peak, having a picnic or simply riding the chairlift back down. The Red Lady Express carries mountain bikers and their bikes to the many trails, single track and back roads of Crested Butte Mountain.
