About Crested Butte

Crested Butte is a small resort town located at about 9000 feet, near the continental divide. It is known for its scenic beauty, skiing in the winter and hiking, mountain biking, and other outdoor activities in the summer.


We hold the event in town, and free buses run up to the ski mountain every 15 minutes.

This site is probably the most well-maintained reference to hotels and restaurants in downtown Crested Butte (where we hold the event – note that you should try to stay downtown and not on the mountain, so you can just walk everywhere). This site only lists hotel-style lodging; there are numerous AirB&B’s and VRBO-style spaces available.

High-speed Internet is available in the conference location and at several locations within easy walking distance of the conference location. Many lodgings provide Internet access but you should ask to make sure.

Restaurants: This is a reasonably accurate list. There are also a few restaurants on the mountain.

Often people stay the day after the conference or for the weekend; informal gatherings have been known to happen.
