Downhill Skiing and Snowboarding
Crested Butte Mountain Resort is about a 45-minute drive from the ranch. The ski resort has 16 lifts that give skiers access to 121 runs, including the 2.6 mile Peak-to-Treasury run. It is especially known for freestyle and expert skiing, with the largest number of lift-accessed expert runs in North America.
Most of the terrain is intermediate but there is plenty of off-piste skiing and a terrain park for the freestylers.The mountain gets 300 inches of snow a year and just in case, the resort has snowmaking equipment. Besides the restaurants on the mountain, you can visit Uley’s Cabin Ice Bar on your way down… or take a sleigh ride there one evening.
Monarch Mountain ski resort is an hour east of the ranch and provides uncrowded skiing and endless views.
