Winter Adventure Park
Located at the heart of CBMR’s base area, the Adventure Park is the perfect place for kids to act like kids, and adults to act like kids. Featuring bungy trampolines and a climbing pinnacle, there is something for the whole family. Each activity is located within steps of the slopes and just beside the Butte 66 restaurant, so when the adults are resting their legs and grabbing a bite to eat, the kids can expel some additional energy under their parents’ watchful eye.
There isn’t much more of a wilderness experience than being pulled by a team of dogs through the snow filled Rocky Mountains. Both kids and adults can enjoy this unique experience. There are a couple of dog-sled tour operators in the area that offer half and full day adventures you won’t soon forget. Some tours start in nearby Slate River Valley or Washington Gulch.
Ice skating is one of those fun and festive winter time activities that you can really enjoy in Crested Butte. There are a few options in the area to get your fix with outdoor rinks. And if you’re an ice hockey fan, be sure to check out the town league for regularly scheduled games.
