Alongside Colorado’s Western Slope, in the heart of the colorful and authentic mountain town, Crested Butte, you will find Eleven Experience’s Scarp Ridge Lodge. The charming property boasts elevated amenities and unbeatable, year-round adventure right out the front door. Whether you are searching for your intimate, mountain event venue or dreaming up your next home-away-from-home, look no further. Scarp Ridge Lodge is worth falling in love with again and again.
Upon your arrival to Crested Butte (“Colorado’s last great ski town”) you will be greeted by historic buildings, panoramic mountain views and smiling locals. Just two blocks from the town’s buzzing main street, Elk Avenue, lies Scarp Ridge Lodge. A former Croatian saloon dolled up in Western, modern style, you and your guests will feel transported to Europe and back to the Rocky Mountains. Put down your bags, clink glasses and let Eleven Experience show you to your room.
Scarp Ridge Lodge is made up of six guest rooms – each a character of its own. With an elegant aesthetic, rustic decor and cozy beds, you will adore your home base during your visit. Don’t hesitate to bring the kids along on this adventure. Believe us, they will thank you later when they discover that their sleepovers will be held in The Lodge’s, seven-bed bunkroom, inspired by the board game, Chutes and Ladders! Better yet, the hotel has dog friendly rooms available. Whether just the two of you, a small group or the whole family, take the time to catch up on some much needed R&R. Cozy on up but don’t forget you have an entire mountain lodge to explore!
Once you settle in, allow yourself to roam and discover all that Scarp Ridge Lodge and their amazing staff have to offer during your stay. An indoor saltwater pool, a rooftop hot tub, a media room, a gym, and an open kitchen – there is truly something for everyone. We recommend catching Aprés at Scarp Ridge Lodge in the afternoons. Hors-d’oeuvres and your favorite signature cocktails or local brews included with your stay! Aprés is the perfect excuse to unwind after a big day outdoors. Socialize with your crew and gear up for a night on the town. Grab one of Scarp Ridge Lodge’s townie bikes and take a sunset ride before deciding on your next stop. For dinner, we highly suggest the local French staple, Soupcon, for an intimate and romantic outing, The Last Steep for a comforting burger and, of course, Montanya, the local rum distillery with an eclectic menu and atmosphere to match. After dinner, cruise on back, soak in the hot-tub and get some shut-eye.
Rise and shine, darlings! Let the morning sun and the smell of freshly brewed coffee guide you downstairs where a chef prepared, made-to-order breakfast awaits you. Eleven Experience’s culinary team prepares and serves authentic dishes crafted with only the finest of ingredients from local purveyors. Whether you prefer a lighter fare or a hardy meal, Scarp Ridge Lodge knows exactly what you need to fuel up and get outside.
Eleven Experience’s guided adventures are the outdoor lover’s dream come true. From casting lines in Colorado’s pristine waters to world-class biking and skiing, we can ensure that your experience will be unforgettable. In the warmer months, cruise Gunnison Valley’s famous wildflower fields and beckoning aspen groves with two wheels. Known as the mecca of mountain biking, Crested Butte and the surrounding area is filled with endless cross-country terrain and single track, high mountain trails for any skill level. In the depths of winter, skip the local resort for a day or two and do what the locals do – opt for a ski trip that will change your life. Scarp Ridge Lodge and their incredible, down-to-earth staff offer cat skiing for you and your guests in Irwin, just 13 miles from Crested Butte along the West Elk range. With cold temperatures and a high elevation, the area acts as a meteorological anomaly and is know to receive twice as much snowfall as Crested Butte’s local resort! Take a luxurious ride, right from Scarp Ridge Lodge, up to your private on-mountain chalet where you will soon enough glide down some of North America’s greatest powder bowls and peaks. Of course, apres cocktails and delicious bites await you for celebration and recovery! Share your wishes and your Eleven Experience guide will take you there!
Finally, just when Scarp Ridge Lodge couldn’t get much sweeter, the Lodge is available for your private event or intimate wedding. Pinch us! Be inspired by 360 mountain views, a vibrant, local community and dream worthy lodging for your “I do!” We recommend buying out the Lodge, turning your wedding day into a wedding week and inviting your closest family and friends to celebrate your love and explore Colorado. Scarp Ridge Lodge can accommodate up to 75 people – just perfect for the intimate, destination wedding you’ve envisioned. There are four distinct areas on property to host your event: the darling Sopris House courtyard adorned with market lights and cobblestone pathways, the Lodge’s main lobby, the cozy yet spacious great room and bar as well as the dining area.
