There is something about Crested Butte that stands out among the other mountain towns of Colorado. I can't quite pinpoint the blissful feeling that has me in awe every time I visit.Could it be the famous Crested Butte peak that juts out from the ski area looking like the hallmark of the town? Is it the dreamy 360 degree views from breathtaking ranch land that is surrounded by grandeur mountains? Or, is it the charming town that welcomes you with delight. These are a few of the many things about Crested Butte that have me dreaming about visiting over and over again.

I have visited a lot of ski towns and I must say, Crested Butte has my heart. When I visit, I find myself in a blissful presence of beauty all around. Every view is stunning. It is a magical place I encourage to put on your bucket vacation list.
If visiting this winter, be sure to check out the website for the latest information on Covid-19 safety protocols and reservations. The mountain (and town) are putting safety for locals and tourists at top priority. Please be mindful of wearing facemasks at the resort along to any establishments. Socially distance when you can – skiing provides the opportunity to social distance and not be directly taking turns next to someone. It also allows for bonus warmth protection from a facemask/buff system to help keep your face warm. Put on goggles, helmet and a ski outfit and you’re safely covered head to toe.
