About Crested Butte Ski-in Ski-out Homes
Oh, the luxury of saying “I’m going to make a couple more runs and then I’ll meet you guys at the house”, or “You go on ahead, I have a few things at the house I have to do and then I’ll meet you at the base area around 10:00 am”.
Everyone has different skiing motivations. A “Powder Day” can be such a game-changer. Not all skiers are the same. What I mean is that some like to sleep in. Then they’ll ask where the groomed runs are. Or some like to go out early and be on the first chair and get first tracks. It really just depends. Especially with a group.
You will have people staying in your Crested Butte home with different skiing abilities and motivations, as well as different schedules at times. This is where “Ski-in/out” and “skier access” gives you and your guests flexibility.
For buyers, I recommend triple checking the skiing access. Check what it’s really going to be like. A long walk? Short walk? Uphill? Is it a ski back to the house through the trees? Always get clarity on what it’s actually like. The closer the home or condo is to the slopes, the more the luxury of skier access and the expensive the real estate. Crested Butte offers quite a few ski-in ski-out and skier access homes.
Top Subdivisions in Mt. Crested Butte With Ski-in/Out and Skier Access
Timberland – This subdivision provides great skier access and sits at the top of Anthracite Drive with homes along the fence line and adjacent to the Homeowners Run. Most require only a short walk and all provide the ability to ski back to the house (at least close to it).
Prospect – This subdivision is typically a higher end area due to quality of the development, the larger homesites, and the commanding views up and down the East River Valley and the surrounding mountains. It was designed around skier access. The Prospect lift runs right through the development and offers many ski-ways under the road.
Elk Run – Most homes in this subdivision have easy access and a ski or level walk to access Homeowners Run. The subdivision here was actually developed before the Crested Butte Ski Area had put in the Gold Link Lift and Homeowners Run.
Gold Link – Adjacent to the Homeowners Run with access to the Gold Link lift, there are a few homes in the Gold Link Subdivision that are literally on the fence line within steps of the groomed runs, and many within a very short walking distance. Short term rental restrictions (2 weeks per month).
The Summit – Located on the front of the Crested Butte Mountain with main access to and from the Silver Queen lift. You can also ski down to the West Wall and Peachtree Lifts. Depending on where your home sits in this development will affect the effort required to walk to put your skis on and ski down to the lifts. Conditions may make it hard for some beginner skiers skiing back to their home.

Condos And Townhomes With Skier Access
Many Mt. Crested Butte condos and townhomes at the base area offer excellent skier access as well. Some even offer ski-in ski-out! The West Wall Lodge offers a namesake lift that services these condos. Some condos and townhomes with ski-in/out include Columbine, Axtel, Crested Mountain, Silver Ridge, Gateway, Emmons and paradise. The Lodge at Mountaineer Square and the Grand Lodge are just steps away!
If you’re the person who doesn’t want the ski-in/out home, but you enjoy skiing, there’s options for you too! There are many lockers and club memberships at the base area. You can keep your gear and skis here, which is great! I like to recommend The Slopeside Club. This makes for an ease of skier access, as well as the convenience free Mountain Express bus service between Mt. Crested Butte and town.
