The Ultimate Freedom

Skiing & Snowboarding

The Nordic Inn B&B is located 500 yards from the Crested Butte Mountain Resort and ski lifts. Hop on your skis or snowboard and check out the 1,547 skiable acres of terrain on Mount Crested Butte!

The frontside of the mountain, specifically, the trails off of the Red Lady Express, offer incredible, wide-open and relatively uncrowded beginner skiing. Intermediate skiers can enjoy quick laps off of Prospect and Gold Link Lift; while more advanced intermediates have tons of trail options off of Paradise and East River Express Lifts. Expert skiers can get their “extreme” on off the North Face Lift, Spellbound Bowl, Third Bowl and gate-accessed Teocali Bowl.


The upper parts of the mountain are steep and rocky and offer a diversity of terrain including bowls, chutes, glades, and mandatory cliff jumps. This is some of the gnarliest terrain to be found at a North American ski resort. It’s for good reason that Crested Butte hosts various extreme freeskiing championships!

You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy a ski pass!

Thank you to for this awesome video

Crested Butte Mountain Resort has expansive and diverse terrain across more than 1,547 skiable acres and offers terrain suitable for any ability type.


The Crested Butte Mountain Resort boats 15 chairlifts with the ability to carry 20,020 people per hour. Crested Butte's peak stands at 12,162 feet and our highest chairlift reaches a vertical of 11,875 feet.


With wide open beginner and intermediate runs, great terrain parks and some of Colorado's best in-bounds extreme terrain, the mountain has something for everyone. However, Crested Butte is well known for the extreme ski and snowboard terrain and was the first ski area in the country to open extreme terrain for inbound skiing.

We have asked our local skiing and snowboarding fanatics, Travel Crested Butte, for their favorite runs by skill level, and they certainly did not disappoint!
