Nestled high in the Colorado Rockies, Crested Butte is a refreshing change.  You can feel the vitality of this great Colorado ski town as you wander through the quaint, Victorian, national historic district with its choices for fine dining, bars, shopping and nightlife.

Crested Butte

The ski area has spent over $200 million dollars on new lifts, additional terrain, and new state-of the art snowmaking and grooming equipment.  With 121 trails, 15 lifts, Colorado’s Best Corduroy, the famous, experts-only “Extreme Limits” terrain, unparalleled ski and snowboard instruction, extraordinary restaurants, lively après ski bars, cross-country skiing, snowshoe tours, and sleigh ride dinners, there are plenty of choices for everyone at Crested Butte Mountain Resort.

Crested Butte allows you to enjoy a step back into the old west, thru its historic downtown and wonderful selection of fine restaurants.  While on Mt Crested Butte you can experience destination skiing at its best, compete with sleigh ride dining, and of course the famous” Ice Bar” at Uley’s Cabin.
