Rumors CONFIRMED: (Please read through the end)
We will have a limited opening of the High Lift tomorrow! (unless Mother Nature throws a major curve ball) . High Lift is planned to open at 9 a.m. tomorrow. Here's the anticipated terrain:
Off the Queen – Forest & Peel all the way through the hockey rink
Off the High Lift –
Headwall (lower) & Paradise Cliffs (with rope closures throughout, please abide. There are reasons why Patrol puts ropes on this mountain. It’s one LARGE LARGE rock) Big Chute will be closed.
Teo Bowl will also be open.
Beacon policy will be in effect. Those who want first tracks need to wear their beacons, as they will be given priority.
Please note that coverage is THIN. Be cautious and be safe! (and tell your friends the same)
With all of that, also note that this ISN'T an indefinite opening. This terrain will close again once it has been skied off and entrances are no longer safe. This could be Sunday morning, could be Monday morning… we don’t know how it will all unfold. It is really awesome that the Crested Butte Ski Patrol has found a way to open some of the famed terrain here, even if it is only for a short time. So a smile and a thank you would go a long way.
- Thanks, have fun and be safe!
