Crested Butte Events

Come summertime, Crested Butte locals and visitors alike trade in their fat skis for fat tires. Crested Butte Mountain Resort tops out at an elevation of 12,170 feet, making the lift ride up as rewarding as the bike ride down. Whether bombing the lift accessible Evolution Bike Park or pedaling high on the scenic 401 Trail just outside of town, CB’s got something for everyone after the snow melts.

The adventure doesn’t end just because the trail does—some of the state’s most popular fly-fishing opportunities reside within minutes of downtown along the Gunnison, Taylor and East Rivers. Whitewater rafting, hiking, golfing, horseback riding, camping and a number of festivals are just a few of the many summer activities that make Crested Butte one of Colorado’s best year-round playgrounds. Crested Butte is served by the Gunnison-Crested Butte Regional Airport, located 30 minutes away in nearby Gunnison, Colorado.
