In summer as well as in winter adventures of the finest are served here
Located in the charming Colorado town of Crested Butte, surrounded by 12,000 foot peaks, Scarp Ridge Lodge is a true home away from home.
The seven-bedroom lodge (including a bunk room for kids) is as intimate as it is inviting, with cosy dens and wood-fire warmed lounges, a cinema and a playroom. A personal chef keeps guests well fed and a team of expert guides create customized outdoor activities.
In winter it’s all about the snow: a high-tech snow-cat carries guests into the Elk Mountains each day where the powder is legendary and the terrain fantastically varied: think Alpine bowls, narrow chutes, tree skiing and jumps.
In summer, when the slopes are carpeted in wildflowers, ski runs are transformed into epic mountain bike trails and the rivers, packed with salmon and trout, become a playground for fly-fishermen, river rafters and kayakers.
Back at the lodge, a 12-person hot tub, heated salt water pool, hammam and sauna soothe weary muscles in preparation for a new day of adventures.
