There will be prizes for best times, best costumes and best fall.

LandShark Pond Skim | April 8
The end of ski season is another excuse to celebrate, dress up in silly costumes and have wacky events, like the Pond Skim, where contestants skim across water on their skis and snowboards. Get in your last turns of the season and go out with a bang!
Spring in the Butte
Here is a look at spring at CBMR by the numbers:
3 – CBMR’s Sunset Soirees at Ten Peaks take place for three consecutive weeks: March 13, 20 and 27. Soak in the longer days on a snowcat-drawn sleigh ride and bask in the increased sunshine at the Umbrella Bar. This popular event includes a delicious buffet dinner and one complimentary glass of wine or beer; it sells out quickly.
Speaking of three, when you reserve two nights of lodging and two days of lift tickets through Crested Butte Vacations, your third night and day of skiing is free. Guests can take advantage of this great savings promotion for stays between March 16 and April 8, 2018.
12 – For families looking to send off the Winter Season in style, CBMR is offering all children age 12 and under free skiing and riding from April 1 through April 8. No strings attached, no parent ticket required, no lodging stay required, just a good ‘ole free ticket for the littlest rippers.
0 – That’s the cost of entry to the resort’s live concerts, including the revamped multi-venue SkiTown Breakdown concert on April 7 and 8, and the final two CB Unplugged concerts. Stay tuned to skicb.com/music for acts and more details.
76,296 – As in gallons of water that costume-clad skiers and snowboarders are challenged to cross during the annual LandShark Pond Skim on April 7.
10 – The Umbrella Bar at Ten Peaks offers unparalleled views of – you guessed it – 10 peaks, including the West Elk Mountain Range, Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness and Collegiate Peaks Wilderness. Teocalli, Gothic, and Whiterock Mountains are three peaks that dominate the skyline.
2,775 – The number of vertical feet from the top of the Silver Queen Express Lift to the bottom of the East River Lift. This long intermediate groomed run – Windy Gap through to Lower Treasury – is a local favorite in the spring.
1,200 – The Al Johnson Telemark Race is a classic Crested Butte costume event that is as much fun to watch as it is to participate in. In tribute to a rugged 19th century mailman, costume-clad competitors climb 660 vertical feet before descending 1,200 feet down Crested Butte’s Extreme Limits Terrain. There are prizes for best times, best costumes and best wipeout.
2 – Trade in your snowboard and skis for two wheels. CBMR is bringing back the Winter Chainless Downhill Race on Saturday, March 24, where racers will test their skills as they ride down the snow-covered slopes. Riders atop townies, fat bikes and classic mountain bikes will line up at the top of the Red Lady Express Lift before tackling the fastest line down to the base area.
