Ahhhh, the Weekend!

Hi All and Happy Friday!  Looks like it’s going to be another beautiful day in paradise, with a forecast for partly cloudy skies, a high of 75 and a slight chance for isolated thunderstorms this afternoon and evening.  We’re under clear skies this morning with temps climbing from our overnight lows in the upper thirties.


Today’s first shot is from yesterday morning, looking out at the chairs of the WestWall lift disappearing into the morning mist.  After the intense thunderstorm that went through on Wednesday evening, the valley was moist Thursday evening and saw low cloud cover until mid morning when the sun broke through and pushed the fog and mist away.


Today’s second shot is of a guest enjoying the thrill of the Crested Butte Mountain Resort Zip Line Tour.  The zip tour is just one of many fun activities that make up the resort’s Adventure Park.  Have the family do it together and make a memory that you all will grin about for years.

Kick the weekend off right, tonight, with another installment of Pedal and Groove at Butte 66.  See details for this and a bunch of activities and events coming up over the next several days at Crested Butte Mountain Resort.  Have a great weekend!
