Crested Butte is Colorado’s “Last Great Ski Town.” Offering an extraordinary combination of big mountain skiing in a stunning location and a hip & trendy comfortable community with historic mining camp ambiance, coupled with all the amenities of a state-of–the-art luxury resort, Crested Butte remains as unspoiled as it is spectacular. Among avid skiers, Mt. Crested Butte which is located a free 3 mile shuttle ride from the Town of Crested Butte, is known as a skier’s mountain – the place where anyone can find the right challenge, ranging from the resort’s innovative beginners’ program, to inviting intermediate trails and non-threatening glades, and not to forget the double-black diamond Extreme Limits, the finest adventure skiing in the Rocky Mountains. Voted best steeps, best snow, and best groomed ski resort in Colorado, the ski area is the go-to place for all serious skiers. The old quaint, Victorian historic district has a good range of fine dining, brew pubs, shopping and nightlife – or simply stay at the mountain for après ski at one of the many great patios at the base area.

Bustling with action, but laid back in attitude, you can feel the vitality as you wander through the quaint, Victorian historic district with its choices for fine dining, brew pubs, shopping and nightlife.
The town boasts one of Colorado's largest National Historic Districts, with charm impossible to convey in words. Although "sophisticated" and "charming" are words synonymous with Crested Butte, this doesn't mean the town hasn't kept a bit of its irreverence.
