ABOUT THE PROPERTY
Eleven Experience’s flagship property delivers a rare combination of an authentic mountain town setting alongside some of the world’s most exclusive skiing. Located in the heart of Crested Butte, dubbed Colorado’s last great ski town for its historic charm and soulful spirit, Scarp Ridge Lodge feels like a European ski chalet with Rocky Mountain style. The former Croatian saloon still has its Wild West facade, but the interiors have been transformed with reclaimed iron from the old mills in town and generous amenities, like an indoor saltwater pool and oxygen-enriched air system. Each morning a custom-designed snowcat will be waiting at the front door to whisk guests to 1,000+ acres of exclusive ski terrain in nearby Irwin. The area receives an average of 450 inches of snow per year and its cold-smoke powder is legendary. Our guides know where to find the deepest powder runs and wide open alpine bowls. Two on-mountain cabins, outfitted with fireplaces, dining areas and seating spaces provide guests with a comfy place to warm up, recharge, and kick off après. Back at the lodge, a steamy rooftop hot tub is the perfect setting to relive the day’s highlights.

Each of the six guest rooms is slightly different, with a mix of elegant and rustic touches, including earth-toned furnishings, jute rugs, and exposed wood beams. The seven-bed bunkroom, modeled after the board game Chutes and Ladders, is every kid’s dream. If you’re visiting from sea level, an oxygen-enriched air system can be activated by the flip of a switch to help fight the effect of high altitude, ensuring a good night’s sleep.
Red Lady is the master suite. West-facing windows look out to the iconic Mt. Emmons, fondly known as Red Lady. Vaulted ceilings make this room feel extra spacious. A wrought-iron ladder leads up to a loft area and the en suite bathroom is adjacent to the king bed.
Butte, our junior master king suite, is tucked on the southeastern side of the Lodge and shares a south-facing roof deck with our Whetstone room. Stellar views replace a TV. Soak in the late afternoon sun on the deck or gaze out at Mt. Crested Butte’s rocky peak from your bed.
Decorated in blue tweeds and Moroccan rugs, Whetstone is our most private king room at Scarp Ridge Lodge and a favorite of young families. A sitting room with a TV has the type of sofa that inspires an impromptu nap, and also doubles as a pull out bed. This room features additional closet space. The bedroom and bath are around the corner from the sitting room.
Beckwith is south facing and gets plenty of natural light. A king bed allows for views of Gibson’s Ridge and Colorado’s bluebird sky. There’s a lot of space, with two chairs beneath the windows and warm red and brown tones throughout the room.
Marcellina is bright in both décor and natural light, with large, west-facing windows and a king bed. An adjoining private sitting area has a pull out couch, bookshelves, a TV, closet, and minibar. Guests can enjoy views of Red Lady from the steam shower or bathtub.
The bunkroom is a kid’s fantasy come true. Staff will label each bed with a special chalkboard sign so that the kids can stake their claim. Built to resemble the game Chutes and Ladders, the two and three-story bunk beds and loft are filled with toys. The bunkroom includes an adjoining bathroom with a smaller tub for kids.
