Crested Butte, Colorado – July 20-23, 2017
We have teamed up with Chasing Epic to offer you a 4-day, all-inclusive weekend of riding in Crested Butte, Colorado.
Crested Butte is truly a mecca of mountain biking, and, according to some, it’s where it all began. Dating back to the 1970’s, the town of Crested Butte has been at the forefront of the sport, and today it’s at the top of everyone’s bucket list. With hundreds of miles of trails, almost all accessible from town, there’s enough here to keep even the most avid mountain biker busy for weeks. Some of the more famous trails are the 401 Trail, Doctor Park, Teocalli Ridge, and Strand Hill.
Crested Butte has two things going for it that make it so unique: first is the town itself. One of the last true remaining “locals” towns in Colorado, Crested Butte exudes character and personality from the moment you pull up to the 4-way stop. There are no traffic lights and you’ll typically see more bikes in town than cars.
Secondly, Crested Butte sits at the intersection of several mountain valleys, which allows you to link trails together very easily. By doing this, you can do a simple 10-mile ride from downtown, or you can link together multiple trails to create an all-day 30 mile epic ride.
With Crested Butte Mountain Resort recently upping their investment in the lift-served trails on Mt. Crested Butte, this area truly has it all. By partnering with Colorado Backcountry guides, Chasing Epic is able to put together amazing itineraries that will have you licking your lips for more. But beware, the climbs in Crested Butte are for real!
