2. Use the free shuttle. A free shuttle operates between the town of Crested Butte and Mt. Crested Butte, where the ski area is located. The shuttle picks up mere yards away from the hostel front door every 15 minutes so you're never waiting in the cold for too long.
4. Need a ski run suggestion? Take International. This black diamond run combines steep terrain, spectacular views, and all around FUN. Wait for a powder day to ski it tips down. Want a ridiculous challenge? Head down Rambo, the steepest ski run in North America-- but beware: if you fall on this run, you won't recover your footing until the bottom of the hill.
So come to Crested Butte and experience an epic vacation at an unbelievable price. Staying at the Hostel gives you a central hub to pick up the mountain shuttle , explore the town of Crested Butte, and trade travel tips with fellow guests. But seriously, take my advice about the Shurley.
