Hi All and Happy Friday! Today’s shots are of the “gi-normous” pile of snow sitting on Elk Avenue, waiting to be shaped into the jump and landing for this year’s installment of Big Air on Elk. I bet that skid steer had to work all night to blow all the side walk snow banks into the middle of the street like it did. Heh-heh-heh.
If you haven’t taken in Big Air on Elk before, grab the family, head to Crested Butte tomorrow night and check it out! With snowmobiles pulling competitors into a big ol’ jump right on the main drag in CB, it’s thrills, spills and chills that have to be experienced first-hand to appreciate. Looks like it starts around 5pm and wraps up around 9pm, so swing into CB for dinner, then find a good vantage point around the venue and check out the little rubber people doing their twisty, flippy tricks!
We’re under cloudy skies with light snow this morning in valley . . . we have two inches of new snow on the Powder Cam and I kept getting into the ABS on the way in this morning, as roads are deceptively slippery out there. While we’re forecasted for another inch or two today, it looks like we’re in store for a very nice weekend, with sun and highs that bump up, into the forties for Sunday and Monday. It’s a great way to start off Crested Butte Mountain Resort’s spring break season—we’ll definitely be busier over the next couple of weeks with our spring break visitors coming out to enjoy the great skiing and excellent adventures in Crested butte. Have an oh-so-excellent weekend out there and we’ll see you next week!
