So many winter destinations in Colorado are also incredible summer destinations. It's getting to be the time of year when we get to trade in our skis for hiking boots and head out for the trailheads.

If you have skied in Crested Butte before but have not had a chance to go back during the summer months, you should think about heading back. Take your friends for a weekend and check out the Alpenglow music series, hiking, mountain biking, archery, and the breweries. To do all that you'll need the perfect Airbnb. We found one.
