The Best Things to Do in Crested Butte, Colorado

The Best Things to Do in Crested Butte, Colorado

The laid-back town in the Rocky Mountains is having a moment.

It's just 24 miles from Aspen as the crow flies, but Crested Butte feels a world away. You won’t see any furs or fake tans, for one thing—and that’s how the locals like it. With a distinctly small-town feel, Crested Butte’s historic downtown looks like it was stolen out of a snow globe, but it’s also home to world-class skiing and mountain biking, and some memorable restaurants and watering holes. In other words: all the beauty and nightlife, none of the pretense. You might want to hurry, as the secret is starting to get out.
