Crested Butte Crested Butte Extremes

As we start to close out the year, we start to open the remaining of our extreme terrain here at Crested Butte Mountain Resort. For the first time in several years, we have been able to have  the High Lift – including Headwall, Big Chute, Paradise Cliffs and Teocalli Bowl –  all open before January! The extremes at Crested Butte are known for their steep and exposed terrain. Athletes from all over the country test their metal with high flying cliff drops and larger than life straight lines. We have been very blessed with a strong early season this year. In December alone, we have gotten 7 feet of natural snow which has helped solidify the base we need to open some of these more extreme areas.

We are looking forward to a strong rest of the season in 2017 and are gearing up to open more extreme terrain as these weekly storms keep rolling in. North Face Lift anyone?
