Located 13 miles west of the historic town of Crested Butte, Colorado, the exclusive Irwin catskiing area is a snow-catching paradise that awaits guests of Eleven’s flagship properties.
Often likened to a meteorological catcher’s mitt, this 1,000-acre area holds storms that at times dump twice the amount of snow than the town of Crested Butte receives. Eleven guests who ski Irwin begin their day with a chef-prepared breakfast, a meal carefully conceptualized to keep them fueled throughout their day of skiing powder. They are then transported in the custom Tucker vehicle through pine forests up to the base area, where they set up for the day in our on-mountain outposts, the Cat Barn and the Movie Cabin. After booting up, climbing snowcats bring them to the top of Scarp Ridge, topping out at over 12,000 feet. A day of powder skiing with their 10 best friends awaits, interrupted only by gourmet lunch and après-ski treats.
With a variety of terrain, from fresh corduroy to steep and deep west-facing chutes through the trees, Irwin has riding for everyone.
