Colorado’s history has been punctuated by many notable events and happenings but none has been as fun-filled as the advent of skiing. Skiing arrived in Crested Butte 50 years ago this season and the resort is planning to make the most of this milestone. CBMR’s yearlong celebration of skiing and riding history in the Gunnison Valley includes the resurrection of time-honored events (many involving costumes – it IS Crested Butte, after all), community activities and the opportunity to honor prominent figures from Crested Butte’s past.
Nestled in the heart of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, Crested Butte is committed to preserving the pristine landscape and mountain lifestyle. With vibrant Victorian store-fronts and expressive local characters, the small historic town remains true to its heritage and radiates an unparalleled welcoming and inviting spirit that celebrates a simpler life and time. Thanks to a widely diverse landscape, whether beginner or burgeoning national champion, outdoor enthusiasts of all levels will find a new challenge with each visit. From world-class mountain biking, to legendary skiing and snowboarding, to a secluded fly-fishing experience, Crested Butte is one of Colorado’s best-kept secrets. This season, Crested Butte celebrates 50 years of skiing and riding with a year-long celebration, Crested Butte-style. www.skicb.com
