There's a "go-for-it, wahoo..." attitude that prevails among friendly, loose skiers who favor its terrain. There's plenty of space for all abilities, but hot skiers and riders will want to know there is more lift accessed extreme terrain in Crested Butte than any other resort in Colorado.
Gunnison/Crested Butte Airport is served with direct non-stop flights from Denver International Airport (DEN), Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) and George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston (IAH).
