Over 400,000 AOPA-member pilots across the US learned about Buckhorn Ranch and Crested Butte recently. AOPA-member Andy Young visited our little mountain town and took the photo of Buckhorn Ranch and our wildflower-laden airport. AOPA runs a monthly photo contest in their magazine and on their web site.
Buckhorn Ranch is 5 minutes from downtown Crested Butte. The subdivision features a 4400 foot private air strip with fly in-fly out homesites adjacent to the runway. Learn More

Andy Young’s AOPA March Photo of the Month
Located atop an estimated 8,980-foot airport elevation near Crested Butte in Colorado, this private-use airport’s lovely parking spot caught the eye of AOPA member Andy Young. He is the lucky winner of the March AOPA Pilot 2007 General Aviation Photography Contest, which runs through September 4, 2007. Young’s photo, as every monthly winner’s photograph, will also be entered for final voting consideration and eligible for the grand prize of $1,000. Winning photographs and selected finalists will be published in the December 2007 issue of AOPA Pilot.
