Local hockey tradition taking place Friday night

The Crested Butte high school alumni hockey game will take place on Friday, December 27 at 8 p.m. at the Big Mine Ice Arena. The game features the current high school team members and the aging alumni of former Titan and Wolfpack teams. The evening also serves as a fundraiser for the high school hockey program as fans are encouraged to buy a puck for $10 to partake in the Puck Toss. Closest to center ice gets 40-percent of the take with 60-percent going to support the hockey team.

NYE bus will be there to get you back safe

We all know that New Year’s Eve is a party night so the Mountain Express will be there to drive you around in circles from your hotel to the bars to your hotel. It will run every 15 minutes, with its last departure from the Old Town Hall bus stop in Crested Butte to Mt. Crested Butte at 2:10 a.m. The last scheduled run from Mt. Crested Butte to Crested Butte is 2:15 a.m. Knowing how logical your brain is after drinking until the wee hours, you may want to take the slightly earlier bus to make sure you get a seat as the last bus of the night can be pretty full.
