Crested Butte Mountain Guides will help you take your game to the next level, from skiing spring corn lines to riding steep, technical lines on big mountains. Their "Ski the 14'ers" camps offer 3 and 4-day trip itineraries that allow for multiple summit attempt days to accomplish one or two different 14ers, so you can start ticking off these summits on your own Colorado 14'ers Quest list.

Or you can ski big lines in Crested Butte's expansive backyard, banking 3,000 vertical down 50' faces -no small task either. Mountains like Gothic and Whetstone, both over 12,000 feet, are ripe for the taking come Spring.
"Longer days, predictable and stable avalanche conditions, and warmer weather make these ideal trips for people looking to end their season with a crown jewel," says CBMG owner and guide Jayson Simons-Jones. "From gentle intermediate runs, to steep and technical extreme descents, our AMGA Trained & Certified Ski Mountaineering Guides can take you there."
