Direct Link To This Post Topic: Crested Butte
    Posted: Jul/30/2009 at 8:46am
A friend of mine owns a rental property out in Crested Butte right on the mountain. I've never been there, don't know much about it, and she's not a boarder - her comment was simply "come and visit, I see snowboarders all the time!"

I live in MN and each year a few friends and myself all look to head out west on a few separate occasions to get some quality riding in. Just wanted to know if anyone out there knows anything about Crested Butte from a boarders perspective. Is it worth looking into, or is it too far down the list out of the staple mountains to check out?

Thanks in advance!

When that place is on it's on.  If I had to pick one resort to ride at in Colorado, Crested Butte would probably be that resort.

The town is great too.  Slopeside lodging?  I'd say do it.

Yeah - her and her husband own a lodge smack in the middle of the action. Getting pretty stoked about giving this place a shot

I'm planning on heading there too this upcoming season since my season pass hooks me up with 5 free lift tickets to CB.  I've been dying to get out West to ride some bigger mountain.  A 2.6 mile run is mind boggling to me since I'm constantly riding these skimpier trails on the Eastcoast.  After looking around, I've read nothing but good things about the mountain and the town, so it sounds like you've lucked out on that lodging.
