EXPERIENCE OVERVIEW

Nestled in the West Elk Range of the Rocky Mountains, Crested Butte is one of the last true Colorado mountain towns. There are no traffic lights, chain stores, or high-rise buildings here, but there’s plenty of small-town charm—along with a cool, laid-back vibe—to go around. 

After landing in nearby Gunnison, you’ll enjoy a short, scenic drive through the East River Valley, taking in stunning views along the way, to arrive at your home-away-from-home during this trip—the Elevation Hotel & Spa. Located at the base of Mount Crested Butte, this luxury resort is just minutes from nearby lifts as well as the lovely downtown area. Here you’ll spend three restful nights in one of Elevation’s spacious rooms, with a granite kitchenette, private balcony, and all the comforts of home. 

In the summer months, pack some snacks, sunscreen, and water and head up for a hike along one of the mountain’s many winding trails. Depending on your ability level, you can start with a stroll on Woods Walk, try the moderate Cliff Creek Trail, or go for the more challenging Green Lake Trail. 

In spring and summer, the rolling hills and meadows are blanketed with wildflowers of every color—making it clear why Crested Butte is considered the Wildflower Capital of Colorado. In autumn, you’ll find yourself surrounded by the deep reds, oranges, and yellows of the region’s gorgeous fall foliage, with color typically peaking in mid-September.  

Be sure to take a moment to stop and breathe in the clear mountain air and take in the postcard-worthy views, no matter what time of year you’re visiting.

While most of your vacation will be spent exploring the great outdoors, don’t forget to make time to check out the many amenities offered at the Elevation Hotel. You’ll have a $100 gift card to use at their popular 9380 Tavern Restaurant & Bar, where you can enjoy cozy indoor and outdoor seating, slope-side fire pits, an all-day menu, and magnificent mountain views. 

You’ll also have access to their fitness center with sauna and steam room, an indoor heated pool, and both indoor and outdoor hot tubs—all perfect for recovering after a day hiking trails. 

We've included bicycle rentals on one of your days to let you explore the area your way.  You can cruise the paths around town or venture down one of Crested Butte's popular mountain biking trails.  

During your down time, stroll over and check out the town, and particularly the lovely Elk Avenue, which has preserved its heritage with colorful, Victorian-style store fronts reminiscent of the mining days. Both pedestrian-friendly and home to an assortment of boutiques, coffee shops, and restaurants, it’s a great place to sightsee, pick up souvenirs, or grab a nice lunch.
