Military Appreciation Month

Military Appreciation Month

Thank You For Your Service

Here at Crested Butte Mountain Resort we appreciate all that the military does to for our country, our families and our freedom.  To give back in a small way, we have developed the Crested Butte Military Month summer celebration in August and early September to show our appreciation. 

We’d like to invite all active, disabled and retired military and their dependents to experience Crested Butte at a significantly discounted rate during that month.  Come hike, bike or simply hang out with the family in this special place we call home. 

Discounts are available on lodging, Adventure Park tickets and sessions with our Adaptive Sports Center if needed. 

Join us and experience all that Crested Butte has to offer.
