Crested Butte, Colorado

America's Last Great Ski Town with Dave "Mac" McGuire

We're at 8800 ft and heading to Colorado. Grab your skis, and let's dive into the world of skiing at Crested Butte, Colorado.

My guest today instructs and guides at Crested Butte and knows the mountain and the town. Dave McGuire, Mac as he's known, has been skiing, living and instructing at Crested Butte since he attended Western State College 22 miles down the hill; he knows the mountain and the area very well. 

Crested Butte started as a supply town for the coal and silver mines and the ranches in the Gunnison Valley in the late 1800s. The town is small, historic, and a bit eclectic and nestles in the heart of the Rocky Mountains just north of Gunnison Colorado. Amazing restaurants, watering holes and shops of all kinds make the town an attractive landing spot for visitors.

The ski area boasts an incredible variety of terrain suitable for every level of skier from beginners to seasoned experts. With over 1,500 acres of skiable terrain, Crested Butte offers a mix of groomed runs,glades, and challenging steeps, ensuring that everyone can find that perfect place to ski.    The mountain is renown among skiers of all levels but has a reputation for providing some of the most extreme skiing in North America.
