The lift pass prices posted below are valid for the 2019-2020 ski season. These prices are based on 1-day lift tickets purchased at the ticket window during EARLY season. You can also see the prices for 4-day ski passes further down the page.

It should also be noted that there is a 4% mountain “admission tax” in Crested Butte. Crested Butte is the only mountain resort in Colorado that charges this tax. We know. It’s not cool, but we deal with it because CB is so very awesome.

Advice on Buying Ski Passes

As with most things, buying early will deliver you the best savings. Many families opt to buy their ski passes once they get to the mountain not because they don’t understand buying early, but because after they have paid in advance for lodging for the week–which can be a couple thousand dollars–and possibly paying for plane tickets, buying ski passes early can seem daunting. While you have to get those plane tickets early to get the deals and book lodging ahead because they fill up so fast, the ski pass deals dry up completely once you get to the mountains. If you pay the window rate for your ski pass, this is the highest amount you can ever pay.

Crested Butte Half Day Lift Ticket

These are only available on the day of skiing, only available through the CB ticket window, and only available for the afternoon.
Adults = $110
Children = $65
Seniors = $80
These are usually not a great financial deal–as you can see–but if you get to the hill late, you are kind of stuck paying this price. Our advice is to never wait around to buy these. If you get to the slopes at 1130, don’t wait until 1230 just to save $26. Because you are costing yourself an hour of amazing CB skiing.
