Looking for festive things to do this month? December in Colorado brings about plenty of holiday cheer, snow festivals, and unique ways to enjoy the mountains. Crested Butte is no exception! Known as “Colorado’s last great ski town,” Crested Butte is a top destination for winter adventurers. From world class skiing and snowboarding to backcountry hut trips, there is something for everyone. Looking to stick closer to town? Historic Elk Avenue is one of Colorado’s largest Historic Districts. Take a stroll up the hopefully soon to be snowy Elk Avenue and take in the festively decorated buildings and beautiful victorian storefronts.

Whether you live here or are just visiting, be sure to check out our December Events calendar for a list of festive activities throughout the Gunnison Valley. Gather the family and celebrate the beginning of the holiday season with Light Up The Nights Friday, December 10th. When on the mountain, be sure to check out the Rock on Ice December 16-22 in Mountaineer Square. Artists will be carving up blocks of ice, creating festive masterpieces for the holiday season. In addition to many great holiday festivities, don’t forget that Crested Butte Mountain Resort offers some of the best skiing in the state!
