Town of Crested Butte

The historic community of Crested Butte has made a name for itself as a creative, free-spirited enclave for the adventurous nestled within the Rocky Mountains. Dazzling expanses of wilderness stir the senses in every season, from the glimmering white slopes and Nordic ski routes of winter to the colorful wildflower meadows and mountain bike trails of spring.

Once a tiny coal mining and ranching settlement in the shadow of Crested Butte Mountain, Crested Butte transformed monumentally in the 1960s as the area in Gunnison County developed into a preeminent ski destination. With less than 2,000 residents today, Crested Butte remains a small but mighty tourism hotspot visited by outdoor enthusiasts from all over the globe.

Expressive and eclectic to the core, Crested Butte is a ski town that thrives on individualism and excitement. The community differs from many of the standard ski resorts directly on the I-70 Corridor in both its busyness and the difficulty of its terrain, with visitors enjoying smaller crowds, extreme ski routes and double-black terrain, and a collection of quaint local businesses within a historic downtown.
