Crested Butte The Last Great Colorado Ski Town
Often referred to as the “last great Colorado ski town,” Crested Butte got its start in the 1800s as a mining town. Located off the beaten path, Crested Butte is admired for its unique laid-back lifestyle and small-town charm. You won’t find traffic jams, stoplights, or even a parking meter. You will discover a true mountain paradise with a vibrant community of passionate people that love the outdoors and the lifestyle this town offers.
Surrounded by national forests on three sides you can’t beat its amazing scenery and easy access to year-round recreation.
Ski world-class terrain, mountain bike or hike endless trails, admire wildflowers, watch Opera at the world-renown Center for the Arts, fly-fish our mountain rivers or just stroll through the Historic District, Crested Butte has something for everyone.
If you’re looking for a quaint community lifestyle, downtown Crested Butte is the place for you. The town is popular year-round, but especially in the summer months. Limited land in town combined with historically preserved buildings makes townhome prices among the highest.
