Crested Butte Mountain Resort, tucked off the beaten path in the Elk Mountains, is a moderately large ski area catering to advanced skiers.
Nearly half the resort is taken up by "Extreme Limits," a steep expert-only area of ungroomed powder.
The resort has more double-black diamond terrain than any other ski area in the state. The US Extreme Skiing and Snowboard Championships are held here annually.
