Contrary to popular belief, Crested Butte is comprised of primarily beginner and intermediate terrain on its 1,547 acres serviced by 15 lifts. Of the 121 trails, 27% are dedicated to “Beginners”, 57% is rated “Intermediate”, and 16% is “Advanced”. Boasting an average of 25+ feet of snow a year and a vertical drop of 3,062 feet from its absolute peak, Mt. Crested Butte is a stage set for snow-filled,exhausting,and ultimately rewarding days of fun. Interspersed throughout the mountain are long and challenging intermediate trails that are wide open and meticulously groomed. An entire area for beginners is located mid-mountain with easy access to and from the base village making the experience comfortable for those just learning. Black Diamond tree and bump runs intermingle with the blues and greens allowing for skiers and snowboarders of varying abilities to explore terrain that suits their skills and then meet up at the lift to take the ride up the mountain together. Atop the mountain, skiers right and skiers left are where the experts in the group will find utter bliss with some of the most challenging double black diamond open bowls, chutes, and glades to be found anywhere. Legendary areas like The Headwall, Banana, Teocalli Bowl, and The North Face will leave the legs burning, the face with a painted on grin, and the soul fulfilled.
