Happy Holidays from Crested Butte

Crested Butte Real Estate for Sale

The snow finally hit the Colorado Rockies this past weekend. Crested Butte got over a foot of the white gold and our local winter season is now in full gear. The skiing on the mountain is great. Paradise Bowl is open top to bottom, so there is plenty of vertical for early season leg burner runs. The Crested Butte Nordic Center just groomed the Bench trail system in town so its really easy to go XC skiing and the Big Mine Ice Rink is good to go for ice skating.

Crested Butte Mountain Resort is offering all kinds of vacation deals including a Christmas visit special that includes four nights at the full-service Grand Lodge, three days of lift tickets for two adults and two children (17 and under) and Adventure Park tickets all for $999.
