While other area communities are valley dwellers looking up to the mountains, Mt. Crested Butte sits serenely above town of Crested Butte and takes advantage of unobstructed mountain views and vistas in the Wildflower Capital of Colorado.
Skiers and snowboarders will enjoy Crested Butte Mountain Resort’s thousand plus acres of terrain from beginner groomers to extreme steeps. Currently, there are fourteen chairs lifts that service 2,700 vertical feet, state of the art terrain park and improved half pipe perfect for all levels and abilities.
Mt. Crested Butte also delivers in beauty and fun during the summer and fall months. The Silver Queen chair lift operates daily to transport mountain bikers, hikers, and sightseers to the top of the mountain.
Crested Butte Mountain Resort serves as hosts to various music and biking events throughout the season. On Friday nights, mountain bikers could take in a Pinnacle bike race to test their skills against other area riders. This annual biking race series was created by the resort in 1998 to introduce a friendly, but competitive mountain bike racing to the community. On Wednesday nights, there is a free concert on the outdoor lawn. This is a great event for the whole family. Throughout the summer there are various music festivals sponsored by the Crested Butte Music festival and the famed Fall Festival of Beers and Chili Cook Off contest over Labor Day weekend.
Mt. Crested Butte is big, open and uncrowded. Named the Last Great Colorado Ski Town, it is a true winter and summer paradise.
