Captivating Beauty of the Elk Mountains — from Concierge Auctions

Hassford Gulch

The captivating beauty of the Elk Mountains fills the Gunnison Valley skyline. Here you find Hassford Gulch nestled in a picturesque hillside outside Crested Butte, Colorado. One of the last great Colorado ski towns, Crested Butte is the perfect destination for nature lovers and sports enthusiasts alike in search of luxury in a welcoming, peaceful community. Crested Butte is home to both winter and summer activities. In summer, Crested Butte is known as the “Wildflower Capital of Colorado,” and draws photographers, golfers, mountain bikers, parasailors, and fishermen. The natural vegetation fills the historic Victorian town with bright ​ ​bursts of color during the spring and summer months, while the national forest transforms the outdoors​ ​into a playground for rock climbing, four-wheeling, white water rafting, and world-class fly fishing. In the winter, one may enjoy snowmobiling and snowshoeing in the great outdoors, along with Alpine and Nordic skiing, and ice sports between the two localities of Crested Butte Mountain Resort and the Crested Butte Nordic Center.
