CRESTED BUTTE IS CALLING AND I CAN’T WAIT TO GO BACK THERE!


Did you know this former coal mining town is now called "the last great Colorado ski town"?  Inquiring minds want to know why… 

 

Simple!

If it can be done on the snow, it can be done here.  (Even the Santa’s flock to Crested Butte to ski).  The ski resort and surrounding areas offer not only Alpine skiing, snowboarding and cross-country skiing but also has a treasure chest of fun for winter adventurers.  Backcountry skiing in the surrounding mountains is some of the best in Colorado.  Not skiing every day or don’t ski?  No worries, there is snowshoeing, ice skating, snowmobiling, horseback riding and even a sleigh ride with dinner.   TSC is working with SkiGroup to offer an optional activity during one of the days. 


FACTS: 


Crested Butte’s mountain is an awe-inspiring 12,170 feet above sea level.   At the ski area’s base, the elevation is at 9,115 feet.   Crested Butte boasts of 16 lifts serving the 1,547 acres of skiable terrain.  Offering 121 different runs, it has something for everyone.  23% beginner (Green Runs), 57% Intermediate (Blue Runs) and 20% Advanced/Expert runs.  The longest run at 2.6 miles is Peak to Treasury.  Wanting to try a little extreme skiing?  Crested Butte has attracted the US Extreme Skiing Championships and the X Games due to having a large amount of extreme skiing terrain.

Average snowfall per year for the 2 terrain parks is an impressive 300 inches with snowmaking over 282 acres.


Lodging Information:


Love, Love, LOVE the Plaza for its convenient location!  Only 100 yards from the Silver Queen Life (the resort’s main lift).   TSC has reserved spacious 2 and 3 bedroom suites for our trip.  Amenities include:  onsite restaurant and bar, covered parking, daily housekeeping, 2 hot tubs, sauna, Internet Access, elevator, each unit has a Washer & Dryer, balcony, fireplace and a full kitchen.


Restaurant / Downtown Information:


Take the free bus downtown to explore the many shops located within the town many of them on the iconic Elk Avenue.  With the Victorian Storefronts and painted fun colors, there is a small-town quirky feel.  Visit the Wildflower or Elevation Spas to work those kinks out.  Stop at the Eldo Bar (A sunny place for Shady People) or the Princess Wine bar for adult beverages.


Boasting of more gourmet restaurants than other towns their size, Crested Butte’s restaurant diversity will tempt the palate of even the most picky (and frugal) of eaters.  Want homemade comfort food?  Check!  Burritos?  Check!  Steak?  Without a doubt!  Even a traditional French restaurant.
