Mt. Crested Butte
Skiers and snowboarders revel in the 1,125 acres of terrain at Crested Butte Mountain Resort, featuring 121 trails ranging from easy-going beginner runs to the Butte’s legendary extremes. Terrain parks, a superpipe, snowshoe loop, tubing hills, the indoor Kids Zone and a variety of base-area shops offer fun for all ages. Enjoy an evening cocktail at Ice Bar at Uley's Cabin — a bar made of ice — before dining on gourmet fare. Then ski or snowshoeing back to the base area.
Mt. Crested Butte also delivers in beauty and outdoor fun during the summer and fall months. Two chairlifts operate to transport mountain bikers, hikers and sightseers. The ski area also hosts a series of mountain-bike events. Go up the road a bit for some of the area’s premier hiking, biking and horsebackriding trails. Grab a little R&R at the playground, picnic pavilion, tennis courts and Mountain Garden nestled in a lush valley right by Town Hall. You may even be lucky enough to see a wedding underway in the garden!
