9. Crested Butte, CO

Home to some of the most epic freeride terrain in Colorado, Crested Butte is the Rocky Mountain’s hidden gem. The front side featuressteep and fast rollers, and a slew of glades. If you’re looking to get really sendy, roll up the High Lift and drop in on Teocalli Bowl’s Alaska style chutes and headwall. It’s not all about shredding the gnar though- there are three levels of parks to get tricky in, plus a 17-foot pipe. -T.L
