The Town of Crested Butte, fondly referred to as the Gateway to the Elk Mountains, sits at an elevation of 8,885 feet and is located 28 miles north of the City of Gunnison. It was originally home to the Ute Indians before being incorporated in 1880.
Today, Crested Butte is one of the few places that can be called a real Colorado ski town. There are no traffic lights, chain stores, nor high-rise buildings. Nor is there a shortage of entertainment or dining options. Crested Butte is home to some of the Western Slope’s best restaurants, coffee shops, bars, and shopping - all run by friendly and welcoming members of the community.
People settle in Crested Butte because they love the combination of its welcoming small town atmosphere and world-class outdoor recreation. It’s also home to cultural attractions typically found in larger cities, including the Center for the Arts and signature events like the Crested Butte Arts Festival and Music Festival.
