Elk Run is one of the most prestigious and highly sought-after communities in Mount Crested Butte. The home sites are known for being larger, secluded, and with mature groves of aspen trees providing privacy and tranquility. The views from this subdivision include Scarps Ridge, Snodgrass, Smith Hill, and Meridian Lake. Homeowners also have direct access to the ski runs at Crested Butte Mountain Resort via the Homeowners Trail and the Gold Link chairlift.
