Crested Butte Mountain Resort is one of those well rounded ski areas tucked into the soaring Rockies with terrain that serves all levels of skiers and snowboarders. The gentle rolling hills are ideal for learning to perfect those turns and the double-black diamond runs will test even the most experienced skier's mettle.
Guests may expect a premier mountain resort such as Crested Butte to be crowded and full of skiers but because it's surrounded by a small rustic town, visitors are limited. This provides an opportunity to ski world-renowned trails without the fighting crowds and waiting in lift lines.
SKI magazine called Crested Butte Mountain Resort as one of the top 20 ski towns. With 16 lifts and 121 trails, you can spend days enjoying the trails. There are also three different terrain parks. The Canaan Terrain Park has many jumps and combinations of rails and features for intermediate riders. The Keystone Rail Park has many types of rails for beginners and experts. Lastly, there is a Kid’s Park that contains smaller hits, tabletops, and a mini halfpipe for the children.
People are always looking for the best powder and snow conditions to have the best skinning experience. Crested Butte has on average 300 inches per year which provides multiple days with fresh powder.
