The summer is in full swing in Crested Butte. Many special events and activities are on the calendar for the 4th of July and the weather has been incredible.

Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) has been busy with improvements. The ski company announced recently they will be renovating the Treasury Building to add more seating and new restrooms. The popular Trailheads Children’s Museum has moved across the walkway to the Outpost Building. 

On the ski hill, CBMR is glading different areas to open up some new ski lines and most importantly, the Paradise Warming Hut sewer is being fixed. If you have ever waited in the lift line at Paradise you know what this means! Hooray!

CBMR has also added three new mountain bike trails, a bike skills park and they now offer lessons! Just like skier visits, the resort’s goal this summer is to increase it’s “rider days” from 3500 to 5000 bikers!

On the ever important airline front, it was recently announced that United Airlines will continue operating daily jet service to Gunnison (from Denver) 2-3 times a day. American Airlines will offer twice daily jet service from Dallas for the upcoming winter ski season and Continental Airlines is expected to offer daily jet service to Gunnison from Houston in mid-December. And, the big rumor flying around town? There will be a direct flight from San Francisco to Gunnison this winter! The official announcement will be made soon.

And, since this is a real estate newsletter,  here is some interesting news.

The Tipple House, located high up on the ski slope in the Prospect neighborhood, is under contract. The home is listed by CBMR for almost $4.5 million. This pending sale represents renewed action in the “above $3 million” segment of the marketplace. The last sale of a Crested Butte luxury home priced above $3 million occurred in June of 2007.

Year-to-date we’ve realized 62 residential sales (homes and condos) and $28 million in volume. There are an additional 21 homes and condos under contract set to close soon. ($14 million worth of real estate).
