Fat Bike Tour
Fat bikes have become more popular in the winters in Crested Butte as a unique way to get around and see the outskirts of town. We are well on our way to becoming a Fat Biking Mecca, in fact.

You can rent one of these bikes from several locations including, The Alpineer, Big Al’s Bicycle Heaven, or Crested Butte Sports.
Winter Horseback Adventure
A chance to get close to wildlife in the mountains and try something you may not have
before, join the lovely staff of Fantasy Ranch for a one hour horseback ride. On these rides there are often animal sightings including elk, deer, big horn sheep, and even bald eagles! Enjoy a chance to warm up in the middle with a stop for hot cocoa by the fireplace. A rugged experience bringing you closer to nature.
