Send ‘em Somewhere: Crested Butte, CO

At troopto, we’re big believers in the gift of an experience. Experiences give us stories to tell. Experiences, in aggregate, make us who we are. We share our experiences to connect and tell our most interesting stories to impress friends, family and even strangers.

How can you gift someone an experience? Giving someone a troopto eGift card and suggesting them to redeem it with American Airlines, Orbitz, Celebrity Cruises or another great travel brand is a great way to do so. With this gift you add a message, “take a trip to ___________, you won’t regret it”. While you may not be covering the bulk of the overall cost, your contribution to the travel experience will be meaningful. Make sure your gift recipient shares some of the memories they make on their journey through stories and photos (selfies required).

Crested Butte is a small mountian town located in mid-western Colorado. There are tons of activites to do here in the summer including hiking, mountain biking, zip lining, fly fishing, horse back riding…you get the picture. Of course, there is skiing and snowboarding in the winter. Any trip here is certianly an experience.

Above is a view from Scarp Ridge. Trips to the mountains are a great way to connect with nature and really find yourself (cell connection is usually poor so unplugging from work is easy). A hike in this area is sure to be a memorable experience!

The photo above is from the Fourth of July Parade in the town of Crested Butte. An amazing experience and fun way to celebrate America’s independence.

In the Crested Butte area, wildlife abounds. Big horn sheep, elk, bears and plenty of trout in the rivers (there’s world class fly fishing in the area). Next time you are looking to purchase a gift, make it memorable and send ‘em somewhere! Stay tuned for our next post and visit us at
