Your home away from home in "the last great ski town."

Who recently checked in

Property Overview

Scarp Ridge Lodge is a home away from home, dropped precisely in the center of what’s been dubbed “the last great ski town.” Perhaps best known for its unrivaled skiing, Scarp Ridge Lodge’s guide team whisks guests away in a private snowcat, which embarks straight from the front doorstep each morning. The historic building preserves its Wild West facade, while the interior has been reimagined to enchant guests with a cozy Rocky Mountain style. Reclaimed iron and distressed wood beams are strewn throughout, while unexpected artistic flares capture the old mining town’s storied legends.

Agent Tips

  • Cat skiing is certainly at the top of the list for wintertime. This epic backcountry ski experience includes a private snowcat that picks guests up at the front door, delivering them to 1,000+ acres of exclusive terrain in neighboring Irwin.
  • Crested Butte, also famed for its single track, wildflowers, and trout, plunges summer visitors into the heart of the Elk Mountains for guided mountain biking, hiking, and fly fishing.

Rooms & Suites

Scarp Ridge Lodge offers five king bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, each named after the peak it faces. Refined touches of alpine influence and earth-toned furnishings splashed with pattern give each room a uniquely inviting feel. Sure to outdo every kid’s wildest dreams, the bunk room includes seven beds, modeled after the board game Chutes and Ladders. An oxygen-enriched air system can be flipped on with a switch, eliminating the impact of Crested Butte’s 8,885-foot elevation.

Pool & Gym

Scarp Ridge Lodge features an indoor saltwater pool, paired with an open shower, steam room, and hot tub. The upstairs gym includes an elliptical, Pilates reformer, Peloton, and strength training equipment.

The Spa

A steam room and sauna are coupled with a saltwater pool and indoor hot tub. A treatment area where Ashiatsu massages and other personalized offerings are given is available or guests can be treated to an in-room massage of their choice.


Crested Butte boasts a variety of impeccable in-town dining and entertainment options, including Sunflower for an unmatched seasonal menu, and Public House for their electric music venue. Scarp Ridge Lodge has a way of enticing guests to stay in, though, especially with their in-house chef who can prepare inventive dishes that replenish even the most active guests.
  • The Bar
    A homey yet spirited bar with five stools and an innovative bartender invites guests to gather for après in the comfort of their own space. The signature drink is the “Alpenglow,” a crowd-pleasing mixture of vodka, grapefruit, Aperol, and lemon.
    Scarp Ridge Lodge, while ready to welcome any mountain-inclined visitors, lends itself to families especially. Kids can’t get enough of the outrageously fun bunk room and kid-friendly media room featuring video game consoles and a slew of popular chapter books.
  • Location
    Scarp Ridge Lodge abides in the colorful downtown of charming Crested Butte. Guests are immersed in the true mountain lifestyle, complete with quirky sayings, hardcore skiing antics, and funky style, all while enjoying arguably the most striking views of the Rockies.
