Crested Butte

Overview

A charming and traditional Colorado town a little off the beaten track but well worth the effort. Huge recent investment means that the mountain has a modern and efficient lift system. Some fantastic skiing for experts with some really challenging and extreme terrain, however beginners and intermediates have some excellent skiing to go at. The quiet pistes and laid back attitude of the locals makes Crested Butte an extremely appealing destination.
