Extreme terrain opening very soon
[ By Kendra Walker ]
The new year brought free refills of powder to Crested Butte Mountain Resort, which received over three feet of fresh snow in the last week. Extreme terrain is starting to open, and the T-bars are expected to open soon.
“We have received 45 inches of snow in this recent system,” said CBMR communications manager Julie Block. “Guests have been enjoying powder day after powder day to kick off 2023. Our grooming and patrol teams have been working hard to get terrain open safely for our guests as the snow continues to fall. The rope dropped on Monument on New Year’s Day, and we currently have 908 acres open for skiing and riding.”
In addition to Monument, the Beaver Slides, Tower 11 Chutes, Horseshoe and The Nose are open. According to Block, the High Lift and North Face Lift will open soon. “Our teams have been conducting avalanche mitigation work in the extremes and they are working to assess the situation following this most recent storm cycle. We should have a better idea soon,” said Block. “We’re excited to continue opening our more advanced and extreme trails as conditions safely allow.”
