About Crested Butte Mountain
Crested Butte Mountain Resort is a different kind of place. As ski towns go, there's nowhere else like it, anywhere.
It's not only the solitary beauty that sets the mountain apart, but also its very nature that speaks to the heart of the skier in you.
Rising abruptly from a gentle river valley, Crested Butte is a towering peak that stands isolated and majestic. At its feet, life abounds with elk, bighorn sheep, black bear and rainbow trout.
Surrounded by National Forest land, there are spectacular panoramic views of the Elk Mountains, Ruby Range, West Elks and the Maroon Bells/Snowmass Wilderness.
Ideally located to catch great ski conditions, Crested Butte stands at the snowy crossroads where Colorado's best winter weather patterns hit head-on. Huge storms drop down from Canada and sweep up from Arizona and New Mexico.
What makes this all even more irresistible, is that the average daily winter temperature is 30 F and sunny.
