Intermediate ski/ride level required. The Crested Butte area offers a wide variety of technical approaches. If you’re just getting into ski mountaineering or are seeking legendary lines, Irwin Guides will set you up for success.
What to Bring
We suggest bringing a backpack – rental available, layers, water, snacks, ski or snowboard boots, skis or split board, skins, poles, and avalanche safety gear – available for rent.
Crested Butte has multiple 3,000 foot ski descents, some with almost 50 degree slope angles.
Late March to early June provides the best conditions for ski mountaineering.
