Mt. Crested Butte
The bustling resort village of MT. CRESTED BUTTE, COLORADO home to world-renowned Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR), is the launching point for incredible outdoor adventure, recreation and entertainment. The base area features premier lodging, meeting and event venues, dining, shopping and activities.
Crested Butte Mountain Resort
Over the past decade, Mt. Crested Butte has been transformed with more than $300 million invested in ski area improvements, new lodging properties and state-of-the-art conference center, hotel and ski lodge renovations and the introduction of zip lining, an Adventure Park, and the Evolution Bike Park. Plans for a new 500-seat performing arts center are currently underway.
More than just a ski resort
Located in the base area are The Trailhead Children’s Museum and the Adaptive Sports Center, one of the country’s finest programs for people with physical and mental disabilities to access mountain experiences. Ski shops that transform into bike shops in the summer, and a tasty selection of restaurants serving breakfast, lunch, après ski, and dinner, provide a wealth of options. A locally-owned coffee house and several nightspots provide prime places to gather while a sleigh ride dinner to Uley’s Cabin and full moon snowshoe tours offer one-of-a-kind evenings.
The perfect place for "I do"
With surrounding mountain ranges and landscapes laden with spring wildflowers and golden fall foliage, Mt. Crested Butte’s Mountain Wedding Garden is a breathtaking spot for weddings and events.
