Crested Butte Neighborhood Spotlight: Trapper’s Crossing
The Trapper’s subdivisions accommodate a wide range of personal preferences for mountain living with ~35 acre parcels. On the North side of Kebler Pass, known as “Trappers at Crested Butte”, the lower lots are within walking distance to town and the lower loop system of trails. Meanwhile, the upper lots are secluded in pine and aspen forests under Mt. Emmons, high above town with incredible views of the surrounding mountains. “Trappers Crossing South” is on what is known as “the bench”. This area is slightly south of town, within walking distance but not connected to the town of Crested Butte. Nordic ski trails even wind around through this area. Finally, higher up on the south side of Kebler pass on Gibson Ridge and the flanks of Whetstone Mountain, is “Trapper’s Crossing at Wildcat”. These lots take you under startling views of Whetstone mountain, with far away views of Elk Mountain fourteeners such as Castle Peak and the Maroon Bells.
While it can be confusing differentiating the different Trapper’s subdivisions, the important thing is that all of these areas are well worth considering as a perfect location for a Crested Butte luxury home.
