Residents aren't really called Crested Beauties-well, not by each other. Crested Butte and Mt. Crested Butte sit three miles apart in a mountain valley. Summer hunting grounds for Utes until the arrival of gold and silver miners in the 1880s, Crested Butte incorporated when the Denver & Rio Grande Railroad chugged up from Gunnison. The town provided mining communities with supplies and lumber. Discovering coal was less exciting than finding the shiny stuff, but coal kept the town alive after gold and silver played out. The last coal mine closed in 1952, and the town staggered until skiing was developed in the 1960s. Mt. Crested Butte grew at the base of the ski runs. Since the great outdoors are open year-round, skiing isn't the only game in town. While some may argue about which town rules mountain biking, it's undisputed that Crested Butte is the birthplace of the sport in Colorado.
