Mt Crested Butte
The town of Mt. Crested Butte is located 2 miles from Crested Butte and is the home of Crested Butte Mountain Resort which is the ski area. The base area boasts a number of shops and restaurants as well as a year-round zipline course, mini golf course and kids adventure park with a climbing wall, bungy trampoline and new outdoor music playground. The shuttle from the town of Crested Butte stops right in the center of the base area and there are several “condo loop” buses that access areas beyond the center.
As you might expect, there are a number of condominiums in Mt. Crested Butte in complexes both large (over 50 units) and small (as few as 4 units). The ski area was started in the 1960’s and many of the complexes were built in the 1970’s and early 1980’s. These vary in how much they have been updated since they were built – both the buildings overall and the individual condos. There are also many newer complexes with modern layouts, finishes and amenities. When considering a condominium purchase in Mt. Crested Butte you will want to look at proximity to the slopes, amenities available in the complex and the association dues which can range from $150 per month to over $1,000 per month.
Mt. Crested Butte also has single family homes which dot the mountain beyond the base area. There is a large variety here as well from small 1970’s homes with 1,500 square feet up to brand new 6,000 square foot homes. Homes that are on the bus route are limited, but the homeowner’s trail allows for skiing access to many areas even if they aren’t exactly ski-in, ski-out. The newest area of Mt. Crested Butte is Prospect which opened up a ski-in, ski-out area of 1 acre homesites as well as the Wildhorse at Prospect managed community.
