Over fifteen years guiding in Crested Butte

Colorado Backcountry is Crested Butte's only locally owned hiking, biking and skiing guide service.

We love these mountains, and we want to share them with you - responsibly, respectfully, privately.

Owned by Ben and Janae Pritchett since 2006, Colorado Backcountry’s team of thoughtfully-selected and exceptional guides bring over 40 years of combined experience exploring the mountains around Crested Butte.

After over a decade of teaching mountain bike skills camps all over the western U.S., Ben and Janae decided in 2015 to join forces with some of mountain biking’s best instructors to launch the Backcountry Bike Academy, a mountain biking school in Crested Butte dedicated to delivering the ultimate mountain bike skills clinics in the industry.
