Nestled deep in the Colorado Rocky Mountains, this special town has an eclectic and vibrant personality that is unique from any other ski destination. Crested Butte, taking its name from the twisted peak that towers above town, began as a booming silver mining town in the late 1800’s. When the mines began to close, the town began to shrink until the ski industry took hold in the 1960’s. Now, brightly colored historic buildings line Elk Avenue, the hub of dining, shopping and socializing in downtown Crested Butte. World class restaurants, locally roasted coffee, art galleries, locally distilled rum, retail shops, live music and more can be found on the charismatic half mile stretch. The skiing and winter recreation obviously draw visitors to town in the winter, but the summers in Crested Butte are just as magical. Many locals say “The winters brought me here and the summers keep me here”. During the winter and summer months, the town is full of life. The majority of visitors travel from Texas, Oklahoma and the Front Range of Colorado, but travelers from all over the world can be found in Crested Butte. Some come to visit and decide to stay forever!
Approximately 1,500 residents call Crested Butte home year round. They are inviting and extremely active, participating in an array of outdoor recreation. With seemingly endless access to skiing, mountain biking, snowmobiling, hiking, cross country skiing, rafting and fat biking, it’s no wonder why Crested Butte is known for being one of the healthiest and happiest places to live in Colorado. The town has also hosted some major sporting events including the Alley Loop, X-Games, Pro Cycling Challenge, Fat Bike Worlds, the Ultimate Snowmobiler, extreme skiing competitions and more. The town of Crested Butte is a highly desirable place to live in Gunnison county due to the proximity to shops and restaurants, and the K-12 community school, which was ranked the sixth best public school in the state of Colorado.
It was a pleasure to work with Nikki to realize our long-term goal of owning a home in Crested Butte. Being both intuitive and fact-based she quickly understood what we were looking for in a second home and the most of our search. Nikki is professional, client-focused, hard working...but above all is delightful person.
