As if anyone actually needs an excuse to visit Crested Butte. No matter what time of year, Crested Butte is a wonderful place to visit. I know, most people come for the amazing skiing but here are 5 Excuses to Visit Crested Butte Before Ski Season. For one, Fall in Crested Butte is “off-season” – a time in between the hustle and bustle of summer and the busy ski season. A time where town is a little quieter than usual. The “Leaf Peepers” have hit the road as just a few golden leaves cling to the aspen branches. A time where locals are getting in a few last mountain bike rides and start getting out their ski gear for tuning. Some even hitting the backcountry for fresh fall snow. If you’re looking for a relaxed atmosphere, some backcountry adventure and amazing scenery, you’ve got to visit Crested Butte before ski season. There’s still plenty to do here in the off-season. Catch Warren Miller Entertainment’s 68th full-length feature film, Line of Descent, just one of the Crested Butte Film Festival’s many great films presented this year. And of course, Halloween. Not that the locals need an excuse to don a costume… But who doesn’t love seeing all the kiddos dressed up in the Crested Butte Halloween Parade? So if you’re looking for a reason to visit, check out these 5 Excuses to Visit Crested Butte Before Ski Season.
