Crested Butte is a town in western Colorado, with long winters that help the town maintain its nickname as “Colorado’s Last Great Ski Town.” The town, however, is full of things to do all year round, from hiking in the aspen and alpine forests to fishing, whitewater rafting, and kayaking in the area’s bodies of water. Go trekking through Gunnison National Forest or boating on Blue Mesa, Colorado’s biggest lake, which makes up part of the Curecanti National Recreation Area. You can even go for a horseback ride in the Rocky Mountains, said to be one of the best ways to see the breathtaking mountainous terrain of Colorado. For the avid skiers and winter sports enthusiasts, head to Crested Butte Mountain Resort once temperatures drop to get a taste of what this skiing town is all about. You’ll have over 1,000 acres of prime skiing real estate on which to enjoy to the maximum before heading home and telling all of your friends what a fantastic experience you had while luxury camping near Crested Butte.
