High Country


Hidden high in the Rocky Mountains, fringe mining-town Crested Butte, CO, has always been defined by its people. Its timeless nostalgic American story tells how this lawless frontier used to provide an escape hide-out and paradise for the wandering souls who stumbled upon it, disguised as ski bums and hippies. With stewardship over greed, this progressive group would create a world of their own, protecting it for years to come in the face of economic pressures, balancing between growth and conservation.
As a challenge faced by small towns across America today, the story of one town hopes to inspire “community” amongst others: if you don’t take care of a place, you risk losing it forever.
