Elk Mountain Lodge
ELK MOUNTAIN LODGE offers cozy accommodations right in the heart of Crested Butte. Both Elk Avenue and the Lower Loop are just a short walk away, making the Elk Mountain Lodge a great home-base for whatever you have in store, including The Grin & Bear It. Stay there, jog your warm-up to the Nordic Center, and then start tracking!
Built in 1919 as a miner’s hotel, the lodge has a touch of the past with modern conveniences. The Elk Mountain Lodge defines the true character of Crested Butte. The authentic feel and elegant finish of the common lobby, bar, and sun room leave our guests feeling relaxed and spread out.
The ELEVATION HOTEL & SPA is right at the base area in Mt. Crested Butte, just steps away from the MTB finish line. This luxury property offers a full range of pampering amenities that you may need after riding 40 miles from Aspen, including slope-side dining, a full-service spa, heated indoor pool, and three hot tubs. Plus, they’ve offered a 15% discount to our CB Nordic Participants! Book with this link to take advantage of the discount.
The CRISTIANA GUESTHAUS stands on its own as a cute, friendly bed & breakfast lodge in Crested Butte, but it also has an equally cute, friendly sister-lodge over in Aspen, The Mountain Chalet. If you’re doing the Summer GT with us Labor Day weekend, consider booking your lodging on both sides of the hills with this amazing family. Their kids participate in our Junior Team, they volunteer to help with our events, AND they are a Business Sponsor.
Owners Hannah and Francisco Carballo will welcome you with the same warmth that she learned from her grandparents, who founded The Mountain Chalet. “What I remember most is the family always putting community, guests and employees before themselves. I think that has been embedded in me from the beginning by my grandparents who started The Mountain Chalet in 1954 and from my parents who have always lived selfless lives. We hope to teach our children about hard work and serving others while living here in Crested Butte.”
