Thursday’s shots are from this morning on the upper mountain. I threw skins on my skis this morning and made the hike up, trying to take advantage of the morning light before we bump our clocks ahead this weekend. While the daytime route at the resort is nice, doing the hike to the top of the Queen is way cool, with views that are second to none on the way down.
Today’s first shot is looking west and a little south, over Crested Butte with Mt. Axtel in the background.
Today’s second shot is looking to the northwest, over the base area to Gothic and the big peaks that make up the Paradise Divide.
Our third shot is looking to the northeast at Whiterock, Castle and Teocalli mountains. The building in the bottom of the shot is the Paradise Warming House.
As it’s the sixth of March, we’re down to one month left in the ski season at Crested Butte Mountain Resort! Yes, the resort turns off the lifts at the end of the day on April 6th, so if you’ve been thinking about getting to get to CB to ski our great snow this winter, it’s time to make your move. I made it out yesterday and found good snow and all the thrill I wanted on the Headwall, Cesspool and Forest . . . it’s a very good year to make the trip to CB to get into Colorado’s coolest steep skiing!
There’s snow in the forecast for tonight and tomorrow—more soft skiing for the weekend at Crested Butte! See you tomorrow.
