Description:

Those looking for an epic winter adventure will love the challenge of the 25-mile Aspen to Crested Butte ski traverse. This hut-based adventure can take anywhere between 1-3 days and ends in the town of Crested Butte, where you'll need to either leave a vehicle or take a shuttle back to Aspen. Established but ungroomed trails go over a 12,075 ft. pass that cuts through the Elk Range and ends in the town of Crested Butte. Huts must be reserved in advance (contact the Ashcroft Ski Touring Center (970) 925 1971 for more info) and include Tagert and Friends Huts.
