Crested Butte is nicknamed "Colorado's Last Great Ski Town" for a reason! This quaint and historic Colorado town sees less ski crowds than some of the resorts closer to Denver. Part of the appeal of Crested Butte is its location nestled in the Elk Mountain Range about 4 hours' drive southwest of Denver. Crested Butte Mountain Resort is just 3 miles from the historic downtown, giving visitors many options for renting gear, shopping, eating out and nightlife. The resort's 1,547 acres of skiable terrain reveals some of Colorado's steepest lines for snowboarding, while still giving beginner riders plenty of gentle terrain. TripOutside has vetted the absolute best shops to save you time and money on your Crested Butte snowboard rentals. Whether you want to pick your equipment up on the mountain slopeside, in town, or have it delivered straight to you - we've got you covered!
