Colorado's Last Great Ski Town, Crested Butte is known for its funky charm and immense beauty. Located in the Elk Mountains at an elevation of 8,909 feet, the town of Crested Butte began in the 1870s as a supply point for prospectors. Named after the distinctive peak nearby, Crested Butte soon became a hub for coal mining, and later transitioned into a ski town. Lately, it has become a year-round outdoor recreational hub for skiers, mountain bikers, hikers, fishermen and women, hunters, and boaters alike. In the early 1960s, Dick Eflin and Fred Rice bought a ranch three miles northeast of Crested Butte and converted it into a ski area, complete with one of the first gondolas in the state. It is now home to the town of Mt. Crested Butte and Crested Butte Mountain Resort. The ski area boasts 15 lifts accessing 121 trails including world-class extreme runs on the North Face and Headwall. The town of Crested Butte holds on to its mining past with original clapboard homes and businesses in an array of bright colors dotting Elk Avenue and throughout the entire town. Historic charm throughout the town and a top-10 rated public school continue to draw new homeowners throughout the valley.
