Pyramid Sled Hill
Crested Butte's newest sled hill is the most popular destination with plenty of parking. This short but wide hill offers plenty of space to spread out and some of the best views in the valley. Park in the right of way along Pyramid Ave, between Highway 135 and 8th St. CLICK HERE for directions.
Crested Butte Community School
Looking for something a bit steeper? Any of the hills behind the Crested Butte Community School and the Crested Butte Mountain Bike Park are fair game for sledding! These runs are steeper and longer and ungroomed. The fresh powder is well worth the hike. Park behind the school at the Town Ranch Trailhead. CLICK HERE for directions.
