Right outside our door and one block away are some of Colorado's best nordic ski trails and great walks, hikes and bike rides out Peanut Lake Rd. to the Lower Loop trail system.

The shack has an entry area with storage for coats, shoes and skis and has an open floor plan between the kitchen and sunken living room and dining area.

High end bamboo floors, granite and glass tile and large windows are featured throughout the house. The bedrooms are cozy and efficient with closets and storage for your belongings.

The open kitchen has modern cabinets, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and is fully equipped with everything you need to cook up that killer Apres ski meal.

                              CB's Shotgun Shack is located on the upper west side in the Town of Crested Butte, quiet but with great access to trails and to main street. Ski one of the nordic trails out the door, take a nice walk out peanut lake rd or take the quick shuttle up to the mountain for some fresh turns and then come back to town for Apres ski and dinner. Great Location! We love to ski the mountain and then shuttle back into town for a happy hour beer at Kochevars or the Eldo, Grab a killer burger at the Last Steep, mac & cheese at the West End or drunken noodles at Ryce, finish it off with a custom hand distilled rum hot toddy at Montanya.

                              Year Purchased: 2009

                              About: Hi! we’re Paul and Monica and we have been living, skiing, and working in Crested Butte for several years when we bought the shotgun shack and with some sweat equity and a vision this trailer and shed turned into a modern cozy house. Monica went to Western State College in Gunnison 20 years ago and as soon as her skis cut the fresh pow on the steeps of Mt Crested Butte she was in love. After some years working in Denver, she and Paul connected and discovered their joint love for skiing the steep and deep and adventure and since then have skied, boated, and hiked together across the American West. We have also worked and traveled to Antarctica, South East Asia, New Zealand, South Pacific, Mexico and Central America. We eventually found our way home to Crested Butte. We are temporarily on the East Coast working and decided to share our shotgun shack and magical ski town with good folks like you. We hope you’ll enjoy our place and Crested Butte as much as we do.

                              Why Crested Butte:
                              CB is Home. We’ve been around the world and there’s no place like Crested Butte it’s beautiful, funky and is truly the last great ski town left in Colorado. We hope you’ll make the Shotgun Shack and Crested Butte your home away from home too.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              Sweeping views from our living room, funky local fabulousness, killer location for adventure, quiet and in town fun. Enjoy our Shotgun Shack.
