About Crested Butte Mountain Resort

Our friendly 1880’s Western and Victorian mountain towns are off the beaten path. We like that and so will you, if you are looking for something unpretentious, authentic and a stark contrast from the ordinary. You'll be happy you joined us in Crested Butte!

Crested Butte is best known for its historic town, the nightlife, fun, and excitement. When people think of Crested Butte words like: authentic, exciting, genuine, unpretentious, and fun come to mind over and over.  Bustling with action, but laid back in attitude, Crested Butte is the perfect place to disconnect and reconnect with friends and family. 

The Employee Experience


Meet Caroline! 
After visiting Crested Butte in college Caroline knew she had found a special place. From skiing with friends to taking in the ambiance of downtown, the trip was memorable and life-changing. While working in Colorado Springs, Caroline realized she had a passion for the hospitality industry and when it came to choosing a place to start her career, the fond memories of Crested Butte influenced her decision to make a move. Once here, she worked her way up to front office manager at the Lodge at Mountaineer Square. She loves that CBMR attracts individuals who want to do something different with their lives other than the status quo. “Priorities are different here” Caroline muses, “People don’t care about labels, what you drive, or what school you went to. Here, we care about what you hiked, what you skied and what adventures you’ve experienced.” Working here allows Caroline the freedom to participate in daily outdoor activities that most people have to travel hours to enjoy. She’s turned a dream vacation into a lifestyle of adventure.
