With a majority of popular ski resorts now under the Ikon or Epic Pass, it’s no wonder why Vail Resorts decided to add Crested Butte!
Located in southwest Colorado’s Grand Mesa Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forests, this town is a gem amongst the resorts offered on Epic Pass. You still get the small town feel while getting the big time highs of a legitimate ski or snowboard experience. If you are driving from Denver, we recommend traveling on US Hwy 285 then US-50 W to Gunnison. Then follow CO-135 N to Crested Butte. This route varies between 4-5 hours depending on traffic.
A normal Spring/Fall in Crested Butte consists of wildflowers of the Maroon Bells, beautiful Aspen trees, fresh river waters, and gorgeous mountain views. During the winter, those gorgeous mountain views become a snow paradise for the avid winter sportsman. See you on the slopes Epic Pass holders!
