It's confirmed today that Vail Resorts is purchasing Crested Butte ski area. Some of the highlights are below:


  • Vail Resorts to Buy Crested Butte Ski Area for $82M

  • Vail to Pay off Lease Amounts of $155M

  • Includes all of Triple Peaks, LLC (parent company for Crested Butte, Okemo & Mt. Sunapee) 

  • Also Stevens Pass in Washington state will be acquired by Vail 

  • Vail to Invest $35M in all 4 Resorts over the Next 2 Years 

  • Expect Closing to Happen Sometime this Summer


What this means for Crested Butte Real Estate? 

  • Prices will most likely increase…

  • Property sales will most likely increase…

  • Property values will definitely increase…

             …because today, Crested Butte real estate is still considered a value….


Most importantly, the historic character of Crested Butte along with the small town feeling should still remain the same. Our biggest asset is the fact that 85% of our county is national forest, BLM or Wilderness lands preserving our area for future development.
