When the lifts shut down in America’s mountain towns, out come the flip-flops, microbrews, and inner tubes. For a real recharge this summer, spend time at our favorite high-altitude hotels, restaurants, and outfitters.
Crested Butte, Colorado
The Ruby of Crested Butte
The Ruby of Crested Butte B&B provides free, bright red townie bikes (and an après-ride hot tub), plus the owners are outdoors people who know the area trails.
The Wooden Nickel
Make that the “World Famous” Wooden Nickel — Crested Butte’s oldest meatery (its bar came in by train and horse-drawn wagon circa 1895) has a cool vibe and serves up hearty slabs of beef and elk.
Crested Butte Sports
Besides renting full-suspension and hardtail Cannondales, Crested Butte Sports serves up informed beta on the nearly endless list of hot local mountain bike rides.
