Ski Lifts in Crested Butte

Crested Butte Ski Lifts & Passes

The Crested Butte lift system has a capacity of 18,160 skiers per hour, with three high-speed quads, three triple chair lifts, three doubles, three surface lifts, and two magic carpets for children. Lifts run from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

The resort is known for its lack of lift lines but not for waiting. During peak holiday times chairs are filled by an efficient loading system, with “singles” lines allowing people skiing alone to slot into spare spaces. The North Face lift, leading to the Extreme Limits, is the one exception to the no-waiting rule, particularly on powder days.
