VRBO Bear stayed here:
The Alpenglow Chalet was the perfect place for the bear and her family to spend a week exploring the mountains. Our favorite thing about the house was the proximity to some of the most beautiful hiking trails we’ve been on. Crested Butte definitely lives up to its reputation as Colorado’s wildflower capital of Colorado. We loved Cary and Regina’s suggestions for hikes and made good use of the many hiking guides they keep in the house.
Returning to the fully stocked kitchen, outdoor fireplaces and hot tub after hiking was just what we needed after long days on the trails. We continued to enjoy beautiful views of the mountains from the comfort of the home, as the place is surrounded by them. There is nothing like watching the sun set over the mountains from the front deck! I would highly recommend this house to friends and family and would love to return someday.

Crested Butte is the last great Colorado ski town--it's an actual historic mining town founded in the 1860s, not a manufactured resort. The town is quaint, the locals are friendly, and the activities too numerous to list them all. Designated as the Wildflower Capital of Colorado, it has a laid-back attitude and you feel welcome to stay & linger, not rushed out for the next visitor. One of the things we love is how safe we feel with our kids there: they can take the bus right outside the house to going skiing, mountain biking, or to town to get ice cream and we know they'll be okay.
Hiking and mountain biking in the area simply can't be beat and the road to the trailheads goes right by the house. You can even take a bus to the trailhead from the stop across the street. We highly recommend the wildflower hikes and the West Maroon Pass trails where you can hike up to look over the mountains at Aspen. We have hiking trail guidebooks at the house for you to use.
Likewise, the ski area is only 1/5 mile down the road and the bus stop across the street will take you there. We're only one stop away from the ski area so it's like the convenience of ski-in/out without the cost! The skiing at Crested Butte is really phenomenal, it has runs for people of all ability levels and amazing extreme terrain if you're up for it. It still feels like the small, cozy ski resort we remember from our youth but it has expanded greatly. And the slopes get the afternoon sun which is really nice--you don't get the shadows and ice that most resorts do.
Crested Butte is also a place where artisans come to practice their craft, whether it's in traditional art or in food and drink. And for dining there are so many great restaurants! We recommend The Secret Stash (pizza), Pitas in Paradise, Ginger Cafe (asian), Le Bosquet (french), Sherpa Cafe (indian/nepalese), Ryce (asian), and Lobar's (sushi). There are several places that serve excellent artisan drinks and cocktails--our favorites are the Dogwood Cocktail Cabin (you have to try the Beetnik and Poco Loco drinks and the tostada appetizers are out-of-this-world) and Montanya Distillers which makes their own rum and has a wonderful concoction in the Maharaja plus non-alcoholic drinks for the kids.
If you want a memorable vacation in the heart of the Rocky Mountains then Crested Butte is the place to visit and we'd love to have you stay at the Alpenglow Chalet!
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We are long-time residents of Colorado Springs. Cary used to ski Crested Butte when he was in high school. We honeymooned in Crested Butte and fell in love with the quaint town, the friendly laid-back atmosphere, and the incredible outdoor activities.
Why the Owner Chose Mount Crested Butte, CO, USA:
We wanted a large mountain home to share with our family and friends. This is our future retirement home. We want our three children to have enough space to bring their future families/our future grandchildren and have everything fun to do right outside the door! This Crested Butte house also has a unique history with the original owner building it to showcase the ski area to visitors from Europe and hosted numerous foreign exchange students and ski teams. The home has a European flavor to it and a family friendly vibe.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The views are amazing: from every window you see mountains and wilderness. Even though the house is quite large, every room feels cozy. Having family rooms on 2 floors allows us to have the kids and their friends on one level and the adults on the other. There's plenty of space for everyone! With the year-round free shuttle bus across the street and the recreation path right outside the front door, we can leave our cars at the house and easily get everywhere we want to go. When we bought the chalet our children were 13, 14 and 16 and we loved that they had the freedom to take the bus to go skiing, to the summer activity center, or to bike/hike and we felt safe.
