Ring out the winter season at Crested Butte Mountain Resort this weekend with a different kind of closing day festivity. Joining forces with X-Games snowmobile event organizer, 357 Consulting, the resort will be hosing the first annual Roost the Butte snowmobile competition April 6-7.
Roost the Butte features four competitive disciplines for experienced snowmobilers, including snowcross, hillcross, hill drag and snow ovals. Competitors can enter all four disciplines, and a cash purse is up for grabs in most classes. Vendors will be on hand to give out free swag over both days, and an after party at Butte 66, featuring the Latin rock sounds of Los Mex Pistols, will keep the adrenaline going after the engines stop revving. If snowmobiling isn’t your think, then catch a glimpse of this event from the sidelines, as Roost the Butte is spectator-friendly.
Registration is $25 per person, per event and will be open from 8-10 p.m. at the Elevation Hotel and Spa, or the morning of. Discounted lodging is available for all registered competitors for $99 per room at the Elevation Hotel and Spa by calling Crested Butte Vacations at 888-280-5724.
