Crested Butte Ski
Best For: Families hoping to raise the next freeskiing world champion
Like its Colorado siblings Aspen and Telluride, Crested Butte is a
remote, high-elevation former mining town of historic buildings
surrounded by spectacular scenery. Crested Butte, though, has a
different, more counterculture character than its glossy
counterparts—it’s funkier, saltier, more altimeter watch than Rolex.
There are restaurants in back-alley log cabins and buildings sided with
old license plates, and the free shuttle buses to the ski area are
wildly painted by local artists. There are currently no chain stores,
and with a population of only 1,487, shopping options may be limited.
But that’s the point. You don’t come here to shop or be seen, you come

most eclectic, adventurous playgrounds in the Rockies.
Crested Butte Mountain Resort is three miles up the road, and the base
village, part of the town of Mt. Crested Butte, offers conveniently
located hotels and condo blocks. There are plenty of dedicated beginner
and kid-friendly terrain on the lower mountain, as well as a reasonable
collection of blue groomers mid-mountain, but it’s the expert skiing and
hiking terrain on the North Face, Teocalli Bowl, and around the peak of
Crested Butte mountain itself that give the mountain its cult-like
following. Crested Butte pioneered adventure skiing, or running lifts
specifically for access to ungroomed, advanced terrain, and the steep,
cliff- and couloir-riddled, in-bounds terrain it serves up is as hairy
as any in the country. There’s a reason countless extreme skiing and
snowboarding competitions have been held here. The ski school also
offers powder and steep skiing instruction for intermediates looking to
