Tuesday’s shot is of Mt. Axtel Tuesday afternoon . . . the southwest Colorado has a significant amount of dust in the snowpack these days, easily visible in today’s shot.
Hartman Rocks is open! You know where most of the Gunnison Valley will be playing this weekend! And if we get tired of single track at some point, we can grab our boards and head back up to the resort . . .
In case you haven’t heard, yes, Crested Butte Mountain Resort is opening again this weekend! Here’s info on that and our season pass pricing for the upcoming season . . .
Get Ready to Make Some Turns Saturday & Sunday!
Never in the history of Crested Butte Mountain Resort has the ski area reopened the lifts for more skiing and riding once it has closed for the winter season. However, that will all change this weekend! Given the great season and existing snow that still remains on the mountain on Saturday, April 26 and Sunday, April 27, CBMR will open its operations on the Silver Queen lift to service intermediate and advanced skiing and riding.
The Silver Queen lift will be spinning and the terrain that services the front side of the mountain will be open. No beginner or extreme terrain will be open. The lift will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days. Tickets will be $20 for ages 13 and older, children ages 7 to 12 will be $10 and, as always, ages 6 and under will be free. 2013-2014 Crested Butte Mountain Resort season passes, Peak Pass and Peak Pass+, will be honored, however CB cards will not, given the discounted ticket price for the weekend. An outdoor bar and grill on the Butte 66 deck will be open for guests for lunch and après. For more information, click here.
In addition, we are offering a lodging rate of $87 per night, plus resort fees and taxes. Reservations can be made online at http://www.skicb.com/deals or by calling Crested Butte Vacations at 1.800.810.7669.
