Crested Butte Terrain

Crested Butte Mountain Resort offers some of the steepest lift-served ski terrain in the USA. Extreme Limits is 550 acres of steep and deep, backcountry-style, expert-only skiing and riding. Author/extreme skier Lito Tejada-Flores calls Extreme Limits "the best adventure skiing in the Rockies." If you want challenge, this is the place to go. Beyond the extremes, most of the terrain is ideal for beginners to intermediates, so there is plenty of inspiring terrain for everyone.

Crested Butte is home of Colorado's first X Games, the Annual U.S. Extreme Freeskiing and Boarderfest Championships, the Elk Mountain Grand Traverse and colorful, entertaining events like the Al Johnson Uphill/Downhill Telemark Race.

The Gold Link Terrain Park and Superpipe is part of a complete freestyle park and pipe pod off the Painter Boy and Goldlink lifts. This translates to a literal playground for the park enthusiast, highlighted by the ability to progress from one park – and one feature size – to the next. The Cascade location also is ideal for larger park features, offering a consistent fall line for the jib park and half pipe.
