Crested Butte Mountain Resort, on Mount Crested Butte, has a well-deserved reputation for combining wonderful, diverse skiing opportunities with a lively, small-town atmosphere. It manages to keep a genuine Rocky Mountain vibe quite different from the resorts further north. Crested Butte Mountain Resort has expanded steadily since opening in 1960 and the terrain now covers 1,100 acres with 2,500 feet of vertical.
Crested Butte is known for its extreme terrain, but the resort features 121 runs-about 50% of them are considered intermediate level. Terrain park enthusiasts will appreciate the interplay between the Gold Link and Cascade terrain parks.
We are proud to offer the very best in rental ski and snowboarding equipment.
Our goal is to provide you with the best fitting gear based upon your ability level, terrain preference, and current slope conditions. Should you wish to switch your rental equipment at any time during your stay, just remember that we are only a phone call away!

Want warm feet when you’re on the slopes? Then try our brand new ThermaCELL heated insoles. These insoles are 100% wireless and fit in any adult ski or snowboard boot that we carry. If you don’t love having warm feet after the first day, we will give you a full refund for the insoles.
Helmets have become a permanent feature on the slopes at all modern ski resorts. Our helmets are designed to provide both warmth and comfort. We recommend that everyone wears a helmet for safety.
For a small daily fee you can cover your equipment against all incidental damages incurred during normal use. Unfortunately, the damage waiver does not cover theft or negligent use of your equipment, like skiing onto the sidewalk or down the street.
You’ve come all this way, why park so far from the lifts? We offer an Axtel parking pass! Park just steps from the Silver Queen Lift and we managed Locker Room. If you were any closer to the lifts you’d literally be parking in the snow.

The optional damage waiver covers damage to equipment caused by normal wear and tear incurred while skiing. It does NOT cover damage due to NEGLIGENCE, THEFT, OR LOSS. If you are skiing on our premium/performance package we strongly recommend selecting the damage waiver. Examples of negligence: melting your boots in front of a heating element; skiing on areas not properly covered with snow; skiing out of bounds.
Don’t ever wait in line at the ski shop again! Our hassle-free delivery service will save you time, which means you’ll have more time on the slopes to enjoy with family and friends. We open earlier and stay open later than all others to ensure the best delivery time for our guests and to provide you with slope side assistance when needed. Fittings are generally done the night before your first day of skiing, this way you can wake up stress free and have everything you need to hit the slopes for first tracks. Our certified ski rental technicians will select and deliver your ski or snowboard equipment to your lodging property at your scheduled delivery time. Our ski technicians will custom fit you with the latest ski and board equipment based on your rental package, ability level, and the current snow conditions. Our delivery vans come fully stocked with lots of options and sizes so we can be sure all of your equipment fits properly. Returns are just as convenient and easy as delivery. When you are finished with your rentals, we come back to your lodging and retrieve the equipment with no need to intrude on your dining or travel plans.
Our technicians are only a phone call away if you ever need assistance with your equipment. Our ski technicians can meet you at the base area or at your place of lodging to make any necessary adjustments or replacements and get you back on the slopes quickly.

There is always a danger of injury when playing sports. However, if you ski on terrain that compliments your abilities and adhere to some basic safety measures (know the code campaign), skiing can be fun and rewarding. All of our ski equipment is tested to ensure release settings are operating within range.
Just like golf equipment, ski equipment has changed greatly over the years. New technology, materials, and concepts have made skiing easier and more fun than ever before. Traditional skis were straight. In order to make a turn, you would have to “load up” the ski and force it to bend. With shaped skis (wide in the tip, narrow in the waist, and wide in the tail), turning is much easier. Plus, there’s no need for really long skis anymore!
Rockered, or “early rise”, skis have a lifted shovel in the tip. This prevents the tip of the ski from diving or catching in the snow, allowing for smoother turns and proper flotation in the deepest snow.
Yes. We are pleased to offer our guests and locals a new option for ski and snowboard storage space in the Crested Butte Mountain Resort base area.
