Not to mention that Crested Butte is the place to be. Whether it be in winter for apres ski. After hitting world class terrain, knee deep in powder all day, walk back from the lifts, join your family in the new large hot tub for five to seven people overlooking the base area, while you fire up the gas grill on the patio. Okay. You prefer the warmer months of Spring and Summer. Bring your mountain bike and a pack of friends to ride or hike any one of the scenic trails directly from the front door.
During the summer months, Crested Butte the 'Wildflower Capital' is host to the Wildflower Festival in July as well as many athletic races ranging from Fat Tire Bike Week in June to the 1/3 Marathon from Gothic to downtown Crested Butte every 4th of July. Additionally, the Gunnison Valley is home to some of the best fly fishing around.
Or Fall. If you prefer the more laid back approach to experiencing the mountains, late September into early October is peak time to watch the Aspens glow. Year round, you will find a good balance between adventure and peace of mind in this quirky but enchanting mountain town.
We are a family of five that used to live in Boulder, Colorado. I have been vacationing with my family in Crested Butte since I was 8 years old. I grew up skiing on Mt. Crested Butte and I remember when there were only 3 lifts up the mountain to include a gondola that went to the ever elusive base of the butte. I now come back with my family every summer to hike and bike and enjoy my beloved C.B.
We love Crested Butte because of the laid back feel of the place and its people. Its like the wild, wild west of ski resorts. No fur shops. No Cartier. No chains whatsoever. Its easy to get around this small town by bike or free public transportation. Great hikes abound. And its the best place to mountain bike in the entire state of Colorado!
I love how spacious it is. It is peaceful and quiet. There are spectacular views. And I always feel like I have truly gotten away.
