CRESTED BUTTE

 

Crested Butte

This resort is a real beaut! Crested Butte is sometimes labelled as the last real Colorado ski town, and we can see why – with a historic Victorian town, friendly locals and bucket loads of charm this mountain town is the perfect winter destination. While there are a few bars and restaurants spread throughout the village this isn't a party town, making it great for families or groups wanting to hit the slopes early in the morning.

The mountain has a natural character that is both distinctive and exhilarating for any ability level. From the abundant wide open green and blue groomed trails to more advanced long cruisers and the famous extreme limits of the North Face and Headwall, the mountain has it all.

Known for:

  • Family friendly
  • Village charm
