Crested Butte, Colorado
Crested Butte has grown from a booming mining town in the 1880's to one of the most respected ski mountains in the country, without losing that genuine mountain hospitality. Experts will find numerous steeps, chutes, and cliffs to explore off the Extreme Limits and The Headwall, and can experience steep 'n deep, backcountry-style terrain off the North Face lift. Intermediates and beginners will thrill to the abundant cruisers under Paradise and Keystone lifts. The village and town are dotted with excellent restaurants and night spots, quaint specialty shops, and art galleries to round out the skiing experience. If you're looking for the authentic mountain town experience, you'll find it at Crested Butte!
Guests will enjoy several million dollars' worth of improvements throughout the resort this year (from base area facelifts to expanded snowmaking to lift upgrades), with ever more dramatic transformations to follow. Innovative architectural teams are polishing plans to essentially re-create the central ski village from the ground up.
