The Official Safety Website of Crested Butte Mountain Resort

Welcome to, home of Crested Butte Mountain Resort’s safety program. We hope you will consider visiting us in Crested Butte soon where you will enjoy the amazing experiences that our mountain, resort, and valley have to offer.

We strive to minimize the inherent risks of enjoying mountain adventures by running all our operations with a focus on safety.  Safety is one of our seven values and is the only value that is prioritized above all the others.  At Crested Butte Mountain Resort our motto is “Safety First” because we truly are committed to safe slopes. 

Skiing and snowboarding has long been a sport for the adventurous outdoor enthusiast, while also being tied to strong family roots.  Those of us who work at Crested Butte Mountain Resort see the mountain as our “Playground at the end of the Valley”.  As someone who grew up in the ski business, I am an avid backcountry skier and freestyle snowboarder who now has a young family.  I love the solitude and thrill of our sports, but I love skiing “Bambino Trees” – a kid-specific trail - with my 5 year old even more.  Being a husband and father I feel a great responsibility to be safe, but more importantly to keep my family safe.  I use myself as an example of how, as employees, our safety culture is entwined with our personal lives.  All of us at Crested Butte Mountain Resort take safety seriously.

Your safety and your family’s safety are at the forefront of our minds, and with that, we hope you come to Crested Butte and enjoy all that we have to offer.  Our promise to you is to inspire your passion for adventure, whether that be skiing the steeps, tubing with your child, or seeing beautiful snowcapped mountains for the first time. 

Thank you and we hope you enjoy learning about our safety initiatives,
