Happy Holidays!

The Holidays are a time for gatherings, baking delicious foods, and creating lasting memories! And we’re honored to share in the memory making with you!
Happy Holidays to you from all of us at Elk Mountain Lodge!

This year we’ve been blessed to have an abundance of snow and spirits are high. The ski area had a record opening with 6 lifts spinning on day one, and more new terrain is opening as the snow continues to favor our area!

Thanksgiving ski camp

This year abundant snowfall allowed the Crested Butte Nordic Center to host their annual Thanksgiving Ski Camp 100% in town!

Crested Butte, Winter wonderland!

Storm patterns have favored Crested Butte this year, and we have more Nordic trails and more Ski Area trails than usual.
