Ski.com Epic Dream Job Stop 12 – Crested Butte, Colo.

Jackson Lebsack and Tommy Joyce get in-the-know for all that CB has to offer.

Crested Butte often refers to itself as “the last great Colorado ski town,” and for good reason. This Colorado ski town oozes history, funky individualism and laidback mountain lifestyle. The best way to understand Crested Butte is to stroll along colorful Elk Avenue—the beating heart of the town’s U.S. National Historic Landmark. Elk Avenue is comprised of Victorian-era mining homes turned shops, restaurants and saloons. In fact, many of the historic drinking establishments are still in operation.

Last week, Ski.com’s Epic Dream Job hire, Jackson Lebsack and content creator and Epic Dream Job “buddy”, Tommy Joyce (@tjtriage) completed the Elk Mountain leg of the journey. During their time in Crested Butte, the duo experienced the unique things that make this amazing town really standout.
