We are located at the world class ski area of Crested Butte Mountain Resort and bordered by the Gunnison National Forest. Must-do winter activities include skiing, snowmobiling, snow cat skiing, ice skating, hockey, sledding and 26 kilometers of groomed cross country skiing, all surrounding the gourmet restaurants, fun funky bars and quaint shops of the fun ski town of Crested Butte. There is no end to the activities of the summer, including gold medal fly fishing, hiking, mountain biking, horseback, 4-wheeling, dirt biking, fun and festive activities for all and more and more and more. If you come in the winter you can count on making plans to return. If you come in the summer, you will be making plans to move here. 85% of the county is public lands. Being in Crested Butte is like being in one gigantic park.
