Getting to Crested Butte
Once you are here, you won't want to leave
Located in a remote valley high in the Rocky Mountains, part of Crested Butte’s charm is that it feels very far away from the big cities of the Colorado front range.
However, this doesn’t mean it’s all that hard to get here. Though flights are less frequent in the summertime, there are still a number of daily arrivals and departures on United Express to and from Denver International Airport. Flights are also available through Montrose and Grand Junction.
If you are driving to Crested Butte from metro Denver, the trip takes about four hours. Add 30 minutes to 1 hour if you are coming from the Denver airport. The drive alone is stunning as you cruise next to 14,000 ft. mountain peaks and over beautiful mountain passes. Avoid the craziness of interstate driving and make a good ole fashioned road trip through the Rockies.
