About Crested Butte
There are few places that can still be called a real Colorado ski town, and Crested Butte is one of them. When you walk around town, you’ll feel it in the unparalleled mountain views and the meticulously preserved false-front buildings reminiscent of its mining days. There are no traffic lights, no chain stores, and no high-rise buildings. Yet you’ll quickly see there’s no shortage of entertainment or dining options.
Crested Butte is known for more time on the slopes and less time in lift lines. The 1,547 acres of skiable terrain offers something for every skiing ability. With over half the mountain geared to intermediate and beginner skiers and a centrally located base area; it is a great place for families and groups with all ability levels. For the more adventurous skiers and snowboarders Crested Butte is a dream with some of the best lift-served extreme terrain in the nation.
