Mother's Day in Crested Butte

No matter how you choose to celebrate your mom this Mother’s Day, we hope you have a lovely celebration!

If you need a little inspiration read on for our Top 3 Ways to Celebrate Mother’s Day in Crested Butte!

  1. Brunch - Low key or elegant, all moms appreciate a meal made for them on Mother’s Day. We love all the restaurant options in Crested Butte, but know it can be a challenge to get in to your favorite spot without a wait. Be sure to make reservations where accepted, or travel ahead of mom and get your party on the waitlist.

  2. Take a hike! - Getting outside and enjoying nature together as a family is a great way to spend the day. While many of the trails aren’t quiet ready, many roads like Brush Creek and Cement Creek are dry and allow for early season wildflower views of pasqueflowers and glacier lilies.

  3. Presents! - Every mom loves a little surprise, whether it’s a new bracelet, custom Crested Butte jewelry, the just-right jeans, or cozy pjs, you can’t go wrong shopping at Milky Way.

    Any gift that makes mom feel appreciated and makes her life easier is the right gift!

    Mention this post and that your gift is for mom and receive 10% off through Sunday May 12th!*

    *some items excluded.
