Hello, and welcome to another wonderful Wednesday at Crested Butte Mountain Resort, where mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the mid 30’s are anxiously awaiting your arrival. Work on your goggle tan while sitting on any of the 15 lifts that are open, leading you to 1051 skiable acres. 111 trails are open, 55 of which are coated with Colorado’s best corduroy, giving you more options than you’ll know what to do with; so if you need a recommendation, give Upper Ruby Chief a whirl, it’s the groomer’s choice of the day!
Ever wonder how Crested Butte makes Colorado’s most divine corduroy? Well the secret’s out and you can be part of it! Learn to move snow like a pro under the instruction of one of Crested Butte’s finest groomers and experience the thrill of operating a snowcat! Call 970.349.4554 to book your appointment today!
Yes, Crested Butte Mountain is one incredible place to ski and snowboard, but did you know they also have an Adventure Park, where you can go tubing, play mini golf at the Flying Gopher Mini Golf Course, go rock climbing and jump on the bungee trampolines? And you can do this every day from 1:00 pm-5:00 pm! Crested Butte Mountain Resort sure knows how to put the fun in vacation!
There is nothing better than taking a break in the sunshine with a delicious cocktail in hand; and at the new Umbrella Bar at Ten Peaks, this break could last all afternoon! Indulge in hot soups, sausages, sandwiches, cold beer, and more all with a Bavarian theme. There’s no better time to bring out the inner German in you!
Want to stay in the heart of Crested Butte, rather than on the mountain? Now it’s easier than ever, as we now manage The Inn at Crested Butte, an 18 - room boutique hotel in downtown CB. Stay in town, ride the bus up to the mountain and use the complimentary ski valet, so you don't have to fret about your skis. Crested Butte Mountain Resort is here to make your stay the most pleasant and memorable it can be!
Come enjoy this hump day on the slopes of Crested Butte Mountain Resort!
