Crested Butte is best known for its diverse extreme terrain with the upper parts of the mountain containing steep and rocky chutes, tree glades, bowls and cliff drops.  Some of North Americas most advanced inbounds terrain is located at Crested Butte and the resort is home to various freeskiing championships.

The resort is a great place to get those untouched powder lines because of the lack of crowds and short lift lines. Crested Butte has adequate terrain for beginners and a dedicated first-timers area. As for the intermediates, skiers and riders should explore some of the blue runs off the East River Lift. The expert terrain requires significant snow cover and is great when base amounts are deep.
