This Week in the Butte

Crested Butte This Week in the Butte

This time of year, rain showers continue to freshen the air, wildflowers and aspens. Mountain bike trails return to their tacky delightful state and streams babble just a little bit louder. Monsoon season in Crested Butte can mean morning sunshine and afternoon thunder storms. Be sure to start your adventure early and pack a rain jacket just in case.
