Crested Butte- Steep and Deep

Crested Butte Mountain is home to some of the best, most challenging inbounds steeps in the lower 48. A day on the mountain can often turn into a bit of an adventure.

In January of 2017, the mountain was hit by a massive storm that dropped 112 inches of snow in the first 16 days of the year. While we can’t promise that much pow, January is traditionally a pretty good time of year to get a powder day and catch a terrain opening or two.

The town of Crested Butte typically ranks near the top of Ski Magazine’s rankings for character. Crested Butte was a coal town before becoming a ski town. That legacy means we’re a little rougher around the edges than some of Colorado’s other ski towns which started as silver mining meccas.

 

Local Businesses Offering Deals

Members of the Crested Butte/Mt. Crested Butte Chamber of Commerce and the Gunnison Chamber of Commerce are also joining the partnership to offer great discounts for Military Members during the month of January. Each participating business will post a “Welcome Military” sign in their front windows.
