Keep wearing those masks, even in warmer temps

As Crested Butte Mountain Resort heads into the spring break season it didn’t have last year, the mountain is prepped and ready to serve the locals and visitors looking to get their last fix in before closing day on April 4.

“Thanks to the hard work of our Mountain Operations team, we are skiing and riding on an awesome amount of terrain heading into spring break,” said CBMR senior communications specialist Will Shoemaker. “We have 95 percent of the mountain open for a total of 1,456 acres accessed by all 15 lifts. This includes our signature Extreme Limits terrain such as Spellbound and Phoenix Bowls, the Peak, Peel and Banana when conditions allow.”

CBMR did not clarify whether any more extreme terrain will open up this season. “Looking into March, we’re excited for spring break and are focusing on maintaining the terrain we have open,” said Shoemaker. “Especially in our Extreme Limits terrain, we remind everyone to choose their lines carefully as we see more variable spring conditions across the resort.”

Shoemaker also noted that face coverings are still required to access the mountain, in the base area, in all indoor spaces, in line, on chairlifts and any other public area where people gather. “With the anticipation of warmer weather this spring, we also want to remind everyone to continue wearing their masks while at the resort. We’ve been so thankful for the community’s support in helping us stay safe all season long and ask for everyone to remain vigilant as we enjoy the last few weeks of the season together.”
