Once you’re on the mountain enjoying your ski vacation, our Slope-Side Guarantee means there’s no standing in line if you need to switch your equipment. We are a phone call away to meet you on the slopes or you may visit our base area location in the Axtel Building to switch our your equipment. When you are finished with your gear we even pick it all up.
Crested Butte Mountain Resort, on Mount Crested Butte, has a well-deserved reputation for combining wonderful, diverse skiing opportunities with a lively, small-town atmosphere. It manages to keep a genuine Rocky Mountain vibe quite different from the resorts further north. CB draws people that want to just get away from it all, ski all day and then celebrate life into the night.
Crested Butte is known for its extreme terrain, but the resort features 121 runs-about 50% of them are considered intermediate level. Terrain park enthusiasts will appreciate the interplay between the Gold Link and Cascade terrain parks.
Crested Butte has expanded steadily since opening in 1960 and the terrain now covers 1,100 acres with 2,500 feet of vertical.
