Colorado Backcountry

120 Teocalli Road
Crested Butte, CO 81224


Colorado Backcountry is Crested Butte's only locally owned hiking, biking and skiing guide service.  We love these mountains, and we want to share them with you - responsibly, respectfully, privately.

"Experiences In Nature!" - We travel softly, minimizing our impact, maximizing your connection to the mountains and the wildlife!

"Adventures in Motion!" - Specializing in custom trips, we scale the day's objectives to you.  We offer a spectrum of activities from relaxing and scenic family outings, high-value skills clinics, adventurous day trips, and multi-day mountain traverses.

Owned by Ben and Janae Pritchett since 2006, we bring over 35 years of combined experience exploring the mountains around Crested Butte.
