Skiing is a blast on Mt. Crested Butte, since it is a small town of about 800 people, you don’t get the lift lines like in other big cities. It becomes your own mountain and you can make your own tracks in the fresh snow! If you want to take a break from skiing, you can go snowmobiling, take a Snowcat tour, go on a sleigh ride, or just sit by the fire and have some yummy hot chocolate!
The food is truly something else in this town. The chefs of “the Butte” take pride in serving their most delightful dishes!
For breakfast Izzy’s is your place, they have good breakfast burritos and a huge plate sized pancake that can serve 3-4 people, but get there early or after the rush, it is very small and service is pretty slow. If you just want a quick bite, their scones are amazing!
McGill’s does an awesome breakfast and lunch also, it has a vintage vibe as it is designed to be an old General Store, the food does not disappoint.
If you want to try something different for lunch, visit Pita’s in Paradise, the gyros are the best and enjoy a beer while you’re at it! It has a fun vibe and worth the visit.
Talk about the best pizza you’ve ever had, Secret Stash is the spot for a slice! Their town favorite is the Figalicious, with figs and prosciutto, it is like nothing you have ever tried before! Just know there is always a long wait so get a beer at the bar and make some conversation to pass the time. Don’t worry it is well worth it!
For dinner, Django’s is a great place on the mountain, the small plates dinner menu allows you to get a taste of all of the great flavors from their southern Europe inspired dishes. They also have an extensive wine list to compliment your meal.
Another great place to eat for dinner is Soupcon, a romantic small French inspired bistro using local ingredients like Elk loin! This is a quaint, tiny place and reservations are a must.
These are just a few restaurants and things to do in “the Butte”! TWJ highly recommends Crested Butte for a delightful vacation to all of our private jet clients.
