Snow Reporter Comments

Beautiful, sunny skies and amazing snow conditions exist on the slopes of Crested Butte Mountain Resort today, February 6, 2016.  Grab the sunscreen as you head out to enjoy carving some turns on the 1,051 powder filled acres of terrain that are now available for your riding pleasure.  There is fun for all skill levels as 100% of the beginner, intermediate as well as advance terrain is now available and for all the dare devils in the crew, 91% of our extreme territory is now ready to be ripped up.  Don’t miss a chance to give the legs a break while connecting some of the smoothest groomed turns on the hill by checking out Lower Ruby Chief, our groomer’s top pick run today! 

Join us for après ski at the Butte 66, located at the base of the Red Lady Lift, for live music, food and drinks!  This is where you’ll want to be every other Friday afternoon this winter to enjoy live music in an intimate setting featuring local talent! Today starting at 3:30pm Just How will be spinning his tunes until 5:30pm.

Feel like you ski pretty well, but wish you could ski even better?  Sign up for the weekly Adult Saturday Clinic, taught by our awesome ski instructors.  Join  in for one day, or sign up for every Saturday. The current focus is on Terrain Skiing – Groomed, Bumps, Crud, and Powder.  The goal for the middle weeks of the season is to focus on taking your stance as well as alignment foundation into a variety of the terrain you will find here at Crested Butte and start to adapt technical focuses towards specific terrain and snow selections. Price $55.00 and you can receive more information or book your clinic today by calling 970-349-2211.

So much fun to be had on this super sunny Saturday! Time to head out the door for another day in paradise. Hope to see you on the hill.
