Few mountains have earned as much loyalty of it skiers and snowboarders as Crested Butte Resort does. Those who learn the treasures that Mount Crested Butte offers never stray far away from this treasure trove of a ski mountain.
Located in the Elk mountains, Mount Crested Butte looms over the old coal and mining town named after the mountain. Once the mines started closing after World War 2, the mountain transitioned from coal production to adventure production. The first lift on Mount Crested Butte started operating in 1960. After a rocky start, the Ski Resort gained popularity during the late 60s and 70s, and grew to become the resort we know today. While the mountain area grew and became more of a resort destination with new, large hotels and amenities, the historic art of town has stayed well preserved.
Now the resort has 15 lifts and over 1500 acres of skiable terrain. Whether you want to plan out a long day of speedy groomers, or conquer the steeps in Headwall and the Teocalli bowls, knowing the terrain keeps your planning on track.
