There are so many sports and activities for visitors to Crested Butte that is may be impossible to list them all! Crested Butte is most well known as a ski resort town, but there are numerous other winter/snow sports and activities available during the winter months, and there are also several outdoor activities available during the summer months.
Besides skiing - which is available for skiers of all levels from beginner to expert - there are other popular winter sports for tourists such as snowshoeing, cross country skiing, snowboarding, dog sled riding, sleigh riding, sledding, snow tubing, and riding on a snowmobile.
Any of these activities can be enjoyed independently, or they can be done as part of a guided tour.

Some of the most popular include, camping, hiking, exploring, mountain biking, and rock climbing. Crested Butte is becoming known as a four-wheel drive, trail bike, and ATV destination.
