There are few places remaining that can be
called a true Colorado ski town. Crested Butte
is considered a holdout, retaining its small town
charm and the adventurous soul that it has
always had. Whether you are visiting for the first
time or returning, you immediately feel a
difference that sets Crested Butte apart from
other mountain locations. With no traffic lights
or chain stores and people who openly
celebrate life every day, the genuine nature of
the community and the pristine surroundings
immediately capture you. As one local put it,
"This is a great place to find yourself...or to just
get lost for a while."
The past is as important as the future here and new
acquaintances seem to naturally develop into lifelong
friendships. For those new to Crested Butte before, you
might be surprised to find that there are actually two towns.
The historic mining town of Crested Butte dating back to
1880 and the town of Mt. Crested Butte which encompasses
the modern ski resort base area. The two towns are
connected by a colorful free shuttle service. As unique and
quirky as Crested Butte itself, the transportation system is
described as fun and reliable with its distinctive hand painted
buses and friendly drivers operating all day and night.
