About Us


The Crested Butte/ Mt. Crested Butte Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Centers provide communication, event, and advocacy services for our members, our community, and our visitors.

The Crested Butte/Mt. Crested Butte Chamber of Commerce started as a business association to promote the Crested Butte area nearly 30 years ago.

We aim to be the voice of businesses in the community, advocating for the needs of businesses, large and small.


The Chamber is the only organization in Crested Butte dedicated to fostering a climate for business.


Looking to grow your business? Let us go to work for you to help you be successful.


Mingle with other members, learn some new skills, and see what the Chamber is all about.

Strategic Plan

The Chamber Board and staff created a strategic plan to guide the future of the Chamber and Visitor Centers. The plan includes a new mission and four strategic areas of focus as well as a number of goals which we will be working towards over the coming years.

View Plan

Visitor Centers

We partner with Gunnison County to operate two Visitor Centers, one in Crested Butte and one in Mt Crested Butte.

Speak with an Information Specialist seven days a week from 9am-5pm in the winter and summer seasons except Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Year’s Day. Call 970.349.6438 or email to learn more about the area.

Hours vary in the spring and fall. Be sure to stop by after you arrive in town for a local’s perspective on the best places to eat, stay, and play in town.
