September 2018 Calendar of Events

September in Crested Butte

With the cooler temps, changing colors and the slower pace of town, September is easily one of the best months to be in Crested Butte.  Kebler pass, pictured below, is a fall highlight and a fabulous place to take in the fall colors.

It’s that time of year to get your ski pass, yet which pass do you get?  With the Vail sale not quite official, I think the safest bet is the CBMR Peak Pass.  You have until October 9th before prices rise.  Real Estate continues to be strong, with over $50m in sales currently under contract, we are on track to beat 2017 3rd quarter sales.  To see the latest inventory and/or market reports, please visit  For those wanting to get out on the trails before the snow flies, Travel Crested Butte has a great Hiking Guide.

I hope to see you on the trails.
