Crested Butte, Colorado

February 4-11, 2023

Need Male to room with the same.


Crested Butte is solitarily and dramatically beautiful, towering above the western Victorian town that lies peacefully a mile from the resort base. The town has a nickname of the Wildflower Capital of Colorado and a motto of "A National Historic District" boasting the largest concentration of Victorian building in all of Colorado. Crested Butte "the last great ski town" is uncrowded with a local population is only about 1,490 people. Crested Butte offers excellent advanced skiing, and the town offers an atmosphere that is intimate and unpretentious; so although all-in-all it may be smaller than most resorts, what it offers in a quality ski vacation more than makes up for any perceived lack in quantity.

Thanks to a diverse range of runs, Crested Butte is appropriate for first-time skiers but satisfies even the most die-hard athletes. Located 28 miles north of Gunnison (GUC) Crested Butte Ski Resort is positioned strategically to catch snow from Canada, Arizona and New Mexico storms. It’s nearly 1,450 skiable acres offer excellent snow late into the ski season. The awesome runs coupled with Mt. Crested Butte's spectacular panoramic views offers skiers and snowboards a unique vacation opportunity.

The Town of Crested Butte is "Genuine Colorado." Many Colorado ski resorts market a relaxed feeling, but with Crested Butte it is nothing but genuine and down-to-earth. Crested Butte is full of history dating back to the 1860's when silver and coal mining attracted upwards of 360 people. As mining faded cattle ranching moved the economic engine of the area. Today ranching and the "last great Colorado ski town" are one in the same. Vacationers come back year after year to enjoy both the on the slope and off the slope attractions of Crested Butte. A complimentary 10 minute mountain shuttle connects the ski resort with the Historic town of Crested Butte, approximately 2 miles away, which offers restaurants, nightlife, and shopping. There plenty to enjoy on the one main street (Elk Ave. to be precise). Be sure to find The Secret Stash for some pizza and then work your way down checking out the local flavor but don’t expect the tourist vibe here; they don’t even have traffic lights!
