If you enjoy waiting in endless lift lines, sitting in traffic for a few hours, and views of bright red tail lights on I-70, better head elsewhere. If not, you're going to love our mountain. Crested Butte receives an average of 300 inches of snow per year, mostly in the form of champagne powder. There is terrain for every skill level to enjoy along with unparalleled inbound extreme terrain for the advanced skiers.
