we here to overshare
our local love

While we can’t be everywhere at once we do make an effort to experience all the trails, cafes, shops and other local establishments we include in each Mini-tinie Adventure. This isn’t just because we love exploring. Our real motivation is to provide you with “been there, done that, loved it” recommendations that are sure to make your adventure even more fun.


One of Colorado's
Best Kept Secrets

There are essentially two towns in the Crested Butte area — the town of Crested Butte and Mount Crested Butte. You’ll find the town of Crested Butte to have that quaint mountain town feel while Mount Crested Butte is more of a resort destination. Both play an important role in getting you outside, so we include aspects of each.

A Basecamp to Adventure

Crested Butte’s location at the back of the Gunnison Valley makes it the perfect place to set up basecamp for your adventures. From your campsite you’ll be able to access a variety of trails all around you. Cottonwood Pass and Kebler Pass offer steep climbs and sweeping views while the valley itself is great for more mellow trails surrounded by mountains.

Expansive Mountain Views

From every street corner in Crested Butte and nearly every trail intersection you’ll be able to look up to stunning mountain views. In part because Crested Butte really is that beautiful, but also because the Mini-tinie Adventure itinerary will point you in the direction of trails with incredibly scenic views.
