The Evolution Bike Park is located within the ski area boundary on Crested Butte Mountain Resort.

Best Known For
The town boasts one of Colorado's largest National Historic Districts, with charm impossible to convey in words. In 1990, the Colorado Legislature designated Crested Butte as the official “Wildflower Capital of Colorado”. In addition the area was one of the birthplaces of mountain biking, along with Marin County, California where old Schwinn bikes were being transformed into bikes with wider tires for more rugged terrain and the pot holes that lined Elk Avenue.

With vibrant Victorian storefronts and expressive local characters, the small historic town remains true to its heritage and radiates an unparalleled welcoming and inviting spirit that celebrates a simpler life and time.

From world-class mountain biking, to legendary skiing and snowboarding, to a secluded fly-fishing experience, Crested Butte is one of Colorado’s best-kept secrets.
