Crested Butte Ski Area

Crested Butte is a great Colorado Ski Town, as different from those other overcrowded interstate highway resorts as you can get.

Crested Butte may be harder to get to than those other resorts but worth the trouble because once here, a visitor really has a sense of "having gotten away from it all."

The town boasts one of Colorado's largest National Historic Districts, with charm impossible to convey in words. Although "sophisticated" and "charming" are words synonymous with Crested Butte, this doesn't mean the town hasn't kept a bit of its irreverence.

A Snowdeck Park ("mini-terrain park") for kids will be added to the base of Keystone Lift with new Salomon Snowdecks available for rental until 8:00 p.m. The Snowdeck Park is open to all skiers and riders and will feature 2 railslides, a box jump, quarter pipe, lights and music.
