Crested Butte and the surrounding communities are know for their profound seasons, with landscapes that change dramatically season to season. If you want stunning images for your social media accounts, then you should definitely consider coming here.
In the summer we have the bluest of bluebird skies which is perfect for water activities such as rafting and fishing. Being at an elevation around 9,000 feet (2,708 m), the summer heat will not be as cruel, unlike places in lower elevations. This is also the time where you can witness wonderful wildflowers start to sprout. As you go deeper through summer, you will witness an assortment of the most colorful wildflowers in bloom. In fact there are about 100 different species of fragrant wildflowers that grow here. That is why Crested Butte is referred to as the “Wildflower Capital of Colorado”. This is one reason why there is an influx of tourists during the summer. Autumn on the other hand, provides a plethora of stunning colors. A scenic drive up Ohio Pass is perfect for leaf peeping and photo taking. During winter a white blanket of snow covers everything, creating perfect conditions for skiing and snowboarding.
Spring is considered to be one of the most diverse seasons, with temperatures ranging from 38 degrees to 57 degrees. It is still possible to do many winter activities and enjoy some early season hiking as well. You can get the best of both worlds!
