Crested Butte, Colorado isn’t just one more ski town. This year it was "Powder Magazine’s" number one choice as the best ski town in the United States. If skiing isn’t the family’s only interest, no worries. It is also the Colorado wildflower capital which is celebrated in spring along with a daunting list of festivals, parades and activities that span almost every month of the year. Some of these include Torchlight, New Years, Winter Carnival, and Mardi Gras during the winter, and when spring wakes up, it’s time for Extreme Board Fest, Slushuck and Flaushink (go there to find out), just as a warm up to summer.
The beginning of summer starts out with the Crested Butte Bike Week and continues with the Crested Butte Music Festival, International Film Festival, 4th of July celebrations, the Wildflower Festival, of course, the Alpenglow Concert Series, Festival of the Arts and Ball Bash. But it doesn’t stop there. The fall season welcomes in the Fall Fest, Vinitok and the Paragon Peoples’ Fair. For those who like to do and not just observe, summers offer hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, whitewater rafting and kayaking, four wheeling, golf and fishing. Winter sports fans’ appetites are satiated with some of the best backcountry skiing in Colorado along with downhill skiing and snowboarding at Crested Butte Mountain Resort.
It only makes sense for the whole family with a wide range of interests to have a year-round home there for full time living or for experiencing a great vacation at any time of year. It’s even better when one of "America’s finest homes," as claimed by Frontgate Magazine, is going to be sold at a no-reserve auction on July 28th. At over 7,800 square feet, this stunning ski mansion on 2.2 acres with views over the valley, golf course and Elk Mountains has every creature comfort for daily living and entertaining. The five bedroom, eight bath home even has a three-floor luggage lift. The materials used in the finishes and fixtures have been sourced from all over the world, with attention to detail made obvious down to the smallest nook and cranny. Some of the exceptional features include circa 1925 leaded-glass windows featuring the life of Benjamin Franklin, authentic English pub bar, walnut from a grove in Pennsylvania, limestone walls from Kansas and teak doors with iron spikes and original painting from a colonial era Portuguese building in India.
