Winter is here in Crested Butte and we are thoroughly enjoying it! The streets of town are covered with snow and the Elk Mountain Lodge provides an inviting glow to Crested Butte’s visitors.
Even though it is mid-January, there are still a lot of events to keep you busy during your stay to Crested Butte.
