About Crested Butte, Colorado

Crested Butte is nestled in one of Colorado’s most picturesque valleys. Dating back to 1880, the historic mining town is known for majestic mountain views that leave both local and visitors in awe and events that range from the wildly popular Crested Butte Arts Festival and July Fourth celebration in summer and the fun and funky Flauschink (flushing out of winter to welcome spring) and Al Johnson Uphill/Downhill Telemark Ski Race in winter.

The town also is known for its colorful downtown district that was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in the early 1970s and is filled with one-of-a-kind, locally owned shops and restaurants. There also is a huge range of cultural and athletic pastimes that keep schedules as busy or relaxed as you like.

Only three miles up the road (or by a paved recreation path), is the village of Mt. Crested Butte, home to Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) ski area that is a year-round playground and was recently purchased by Vail Resorts. Founded in the early 1960s, CBMR is one of North America’s true skiing gems and leaves a lasting impression that is hard for any level of skier to shake. In the summer and fall, the resorts transforms into a prime place for mountain biking, outdoor concerts and festivals, and patio lounging for a meal, Colorado microbrew or cup of locally roasted coffee.

A sublime valley for living, relaxing and ranching

Commercial airlines and private planes fly into the Gunnison-Crested Butte Regional Airport in Gunnison, located at the south end of the valley and only a 30-minute drive from Crested Butte along beautiful stretches of ranch land with miles of hay meadows and grazing cattle.

Ranching has long been part of the Gunnison-Crested Butte Valley’s rich history, with most settlers homesteading to serve the growing population and mining industry. In fact, the annual Gunnison Cattlemen’s Days celebration dates back to 1901 and is the granddaddy of Colorado rodeos, held in July between spring calving and summer haying.

On the easy drive from Gunnison to Crested Butte, pass through Almont where the Taylor and East rivers merge to form the Gunnison River and a small handful of resorts and outfitters for fishing, rafting and kayaking are located.

Iconic piece of paradise

From Almont, cruising along County Highway 742 or getting to the end of Jack’s Cabin Cutoff from the U.S. Highway 135 route from Crested Butte is an iconic property that has long been admired by anyone ambling by. Known today as Wilder on the Taylor, these 2,100+ acres of paradise, positioned along a stunning two-mile stretch of the Taylor River, dates back to 1893 when three young men established homesteads.

Since then, a small collection of owners and managers have ensured thoughtful stewardship of this working hay and cattle ranch, where diverse wildlife like elk and deer meander through and eagles soaring overhead.

Wilder on the Taylor continues rich legacy

In 2007, part-time residents who had fallen in love with the area nearly three decades prior purchased the ranch. They envisioned a recreational and preservation-oriented ranch community that preserved, protected and perpetuated the traditions of western Colorado and also served as an angling paradise. The result? Wilder on the Taylor features homestead lots that are a minimum of 35 acres each and gives owners access to miles of private fishing water and trails, master guides for fly fishing, trail rides and cattle roundups on horseback, concierge services, and a base camp for dining, relaxing and socializing.

The laidback lifestyle has attracted people from around the country seeking a premiere mountain escape that can be enjoyed by their families and guests and has a prime location not far from Crested Butte. Find out about Crested Butte land for sale at Wilder on the Taylor and create a legacy that will be enjoyed by all ages and for future generations.
