Things to do in and around Crested Butte.

From singletrack to nordic track, big trout to big air, Crested Butte has activities for all four seasons. The abundant opportunities for recreation in our area are among the reasons so many people love to come visit our town.

In the winter, anything that you can do on snow, you can do here.
