Tucked away in the high mountains of Central Colorado, Crested Butte is one of North America’s great low key mountain resorts. It’s known for its expansive and diverse terrain, gorgeous scenery, and friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

The lowdown: More than 1,500 skiable acres, 300 inches of snowfall per year, and a vertical drop of over 3,000 ft. There’s a ton of options for advanced skiers and freeriders, from short, playful chutes to great fall line skiing, and some of the steepest lines in Colorado.
