Summer in Crested Butte is like no other, recognized by the Colorado state legislature as the Wildflower Capital of Colorado and surrounded by 1.7 million acres of National Forest, you will be in awe of the nature-dominated beauty. With the dramatic scenery of Paradise Divide, the vast fields painted in yellows, purples, reds and blues, the adventure to be found on the mountain and the charm of downtown Crested Butte, you have found paradise and we welcome you to enjoy it with us. Looking for a place to inspire your passion for adventure? Crested Butte is the outdoor playground you’ve been looking for at any age. Hiking, mountain biking, fishing, rafting, ziplining, jeep tours, mountaineering, horseback riding or simply star-gazing are all part of the daily life in the heart of the Rocky Mountains. You’ll love the warmth of the summer sun and the cool crisp mountain evenings. Crested Butte is a great mountain getaway to escape the heat. With average summer temperatures in the mid- 70's, it is no wonder the saying goes “we came for winter, but stayed for summer.”
