Crested Butte is home to an amazing ski resort, and the backcountry offers extraordinary skiing options. Crested Butte Mountain Resort treats you to 1,547 acres of ski-able terrain. The resort has long been known for its expert terrain and also provides ample beginner and intermediate runs. The area receives an average of 300 inches of snow a year, and the backcountry receives considerably more.
You can learn more about the resort and purchase your lift tickets at SkiCB.com.
The U.S. Forest Service’s winter recreation map points out where you can begin your backcountry ski adventure. You can find it here.
Great skis can take your skiing experience and skill level to the level. I highly recommend you take a look at Romp Skis. Their skis are custom made right here in Crested Butte.
