Just like the town, Crested Butte Mountain Resort is a unique and welcoming ski paradise that you are bound to fall in love with, just like we did. Crested Butte receives an average of 234 inches of snow a year, giving the slopes blankets of new powder all the time. People with every skill level are sure to enjoy our mountain as we have terrain for all abilities along with unparalleled extreme terrain for the advanced skiers.
Few Crowds, Fewer Lines
Unless you're visiting on a holiday, don't worry about lift lines, and even then you won't find yourself waiting more than a few minuets. With 15 lifts capable of handling 20,310 people per hour, lift lines are always quick and easy. Most days the mountain sees less than 2,000 people, giving you and your group exceptional time and space to explore the 1,500+ acres of terrain. The mountain has 162 trails surrounded by the Elk Mountains in every direction, the longest being 2.6 miles from the Peak to Treasury. You'll have to make a small hike from the Silver Queen lift to reach the peak at 12,200 feet.

Test your abilities at one of Crested Butte's terrain parks. Skill level is of no concern due to the varying levels of difficulty each park has. Work on our basics at the Ten Peaks Progression Park located right next to the Umbrella Bar off of Painter Boy Lift. If you're ready for the advanced sections, head over to the Lower Twister Terrain park on, you guessed it, Lower Twister.
On Mountain Dining
What's better than lunch with a view? Not much in our opinion. Our ski in and ski out restaurants are open and full service. Masks are required inside the building except while eating or drinking. Grab a drink, snack, or meal and enjoy the view of skiers and mountains all around.
