Fresh & Local

Discover new flavors from local farms to countries around the world. Enjoy craft brewed beer, award winning locally distilled rum, coffee beans freshly roasted in town, and organic juice smoothies of every variety. Apres-ski options range from burgers & beer to cocktails & small plates. All of these culinary creations are available within walking, biking, or a quick shuttle ride’s distance (most are on/off of Elk Avenue).

 Almost every restaurant and bar is independently owned and operated. And there’s no dress code anywhere in town so feel free to show up in your ski gear, pajamas, or tuxedo. Questions on the best Crested Butte restaurants or what to eat? Contact us or tweet at us @_TravelCB.
