Getting to Crested Butte Resort

To get to Crested Butte, consider flying into Gunnison-Crested Butte Regional Airport (GUC), Montrose Regional Airport (MTJ), or Denver International Airport (DEN).

From Gunnison-Crested Butte Regional Airport (approx. 41 min.) Head north on 11th Street toward West Rio Grande Avenue; follow CO-135 N to 6th St. in Crested Butte (about 27 miles). Continue on 6th St., which will turn into Gothic Rd. Continue until Snowmass Rd. to reach the base of the resort.

Driving from Denver (approx. 4 to 4.5 hours) In the summer, the fastest path is to take Highway 285 south to Buena Vista. Straight ahead, you'll see Mt. Princeton. After that, head into town on route 24 and turn left at the stop sign to ascend Cottonwood Pass (route 306), which reaches a height of almost 12,000 feet. Turn left onto Route 742 and as you descend alongside the Taylor River you are surrounded by stunning rock and cliff formations. Another shortcut will take you onto Jacks Cabin Road, which turns to dirt for a few miles before meeting pavement once more. Turn right onto Highway 135. From here, it takes only ten minutes to travel up the valley.

During the winter, Cottonwood Pass is closed, and the route turns south from Buena Vista down to Poncha Springs. Turn right at the junction and hop on Highway 50 over the 11,000 ft Monarch Pass. Travel down the wide valleys to Gunnison, which is less than an hour's drive from the summit. In Gunnison, make a right at the stoplight onto Highway 135 and head north for another 30 minutes.
