Crested Butte, Colorado: Small Resort Town in the Rockies with Authentic Old West Charm
Crested Butte is situated at 9,000 feet in southwest Colorado's Rocky Mountains, and is surrounded by some lovely scenery. Crested Butte's downtown area nods to its Old West roots. Victorian storefronts and art galleries line downtown Elk Avenue, and there’s a famous rum distillery that welcomes visitors year-round. For a glimpse into the town's history, head to the Crested Butte Mountain Heritage Museum, which has an elaborate diorama that elucidates life here in the mining days of the 1920s.
Though most famous for skiing, Crested Butte is also hailed as one of the most dynamic cities in the country for mountain biking. Some even claim the sport actually began here. A must-do for bikers is Pearl Pass—the birthplace of the "fat-tire" craze—which stretches for nearly 40 miles through rugged alpine terrain.
