The Mountain
Crested Butte Mountain Resort has expansive and diverse terrain across more than 1,500 skiable acres and offers terrain suitable for any ability type. With wide open beginner and intermediate runs, great terrain parks and some of Colorado's best in-bounds extreme terrain, the mountain has something for everyone.

The Town

An historic coal mining turned ski town; Crested Butte is a place that lives and breathes outdoor adventure where the only limits are your own. An authentic destination, where crowds don't exist  and genuine adventure awaits.

Crested Butte, located in the heart of Colorado's Rocky Mountains, is the place to inspire your passion for adventure. With vibrant Victorian store-fronts and expressive local characters, Crested Butte remains true to its heritage and radiates an unparalleled welcoming and inviting spirit that will take you back to a simpler life and time.



We will be staying at the Plaza Condos. Groups and families love the Plaza for its convenient location just 100 yards from the ski area's main lift, the Silver Queen. In one short walk, guests can hit the slopes or take in the action at the base area of Crested Butte Mountain Resort. The Plaza is also unique for its condominium setting with hotel style services. Spacious two- and three- bedroom suites include everything you need to be independent, while on-site check-in, a restaurant and bar, daily housekeeping services, covered parking and two hot tubs provide all the benefits of a hotel.
