Crested Butte Area
Crested Butte is an iconic Colorado mountain town. With its Downtown being located approximately 3 miles from the Resort, Downtown offers its own unique flare. With colorful characters and even more colorful views of Mt. Crested Butte, the vistas in and around town are spectacular. There is a free shuttle service to and from Mt. Crested Butte making travel between the two towns easy. And there is no reason to drive. Mt. Crested Butte is home to the famed 401- a gnarly and super technical mountain bike ride. Winter or Summer, Crested Butte has something for everyone. One of the first decisions visitors to the Crested Butte area need to make - is to choose between the area up near the ski area, or in town. Our community is actually comprised of two separate municipalities - the historic town of Crested Butte, and the town that was formed around the base of the ski area - the town of Mount Crested Butte!
