Notes of Interest

A great activity for the kids is sledding at the Big Mine Park located next to the Crested Butte Nordic Center. Kids and adults can enjoy this timeless and fun activity of hiking up the hill and sledding down. The park is open from sunrise to sunset.

  Our high altitude area receives 300 average annual inches of snow creating excellent conditions for any winter activity.

  Crested Butte Ski Resort’s world class slopes cater to every skill level from first timers and families to expert skiers enjoying some of the best extremes in the country.

  The Nordic Center offers up 55km of maintained nordic track and over 100km of groomed ski trails.

  If you’re looking for traffic and crowds, better look elsewhere! Find only pristine wilderness views with you, your friends, or your family enjoying the wide open spaces.
