Crested Butte Mountain Resort
Crested Butte lives and breathes outdoor adventure, where the only limits are your own. An authentic resort destination, where crowds just don't exist, zany, festive community events are a priority and genuine family adventure awaits. With wide-open beginner and intermediate runs, terrain parks and some of Colorado's best in-bounds extreme terrain, Crested Butte Mountain Resort has something for everyone in the winter. The slopes are prepped for an excellent winter, with improved tree skiing areas (the resort gladed 10 acres of forest in 2013 and continued glading additional areas for the 2014-2015 ski season) and three new kids' trails. They also plan to install an extra magic carpet lift just for the tubing hill. The new magic carpet will provide guests easy, safe access to the tubing hill, even into the evening hours, making it excellent apres ski entertainment for the whole family.
New for the 2014-2015 Ski Season: Snow Bikes and improved Storage!
This year, guests will be able to try out snow bikes by renting one from the resort's rental fleet. A two hour lesson and a guided tour around the mountain is required to make sure participants know how to navigate the slopes safely, but then you're on your own to explore as you wish on this new way to slide on snow. The resort has added new slopeside racks to streamline ski storage for guests staying at the resort-managed hotels. There will even be some extra space for guests staying at other properties, available for a nominal fee.
