This much anticipated opening will offer incredible skiing and riding at the resort this weekend

MT. CRESTED BUTTE, Colo. – FEB. 25 – After a big announcement in November of the possibility of expanding skiing and riding to an area called Teo 2 at Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR), recent snow has given ample snow coverage to open this terrain for the first time ever. Teo 2 is an area just beyond the current Teocalli Bowl that is within ski area boundaries and has future plans for lift and terrain expansion into the drainage below, if approved once plans and permitting being.

It is an exciting time for the resort and its guests to get back there, check it out and see the opportunities within the resort’s 2013 Master Development Plan with the US Forest Service. Teo 2 brings an additional 40 acres of extreme skiing terrain to CBMR, with pillow drops, steep tree lines and finishing out with a mellow open bowl of fresh powder.

40 acres of extreme terrain will open this season with ample snow

MT. CRESTED BUTTE, Colo. – Nov. 5 – Crested Butte Mountain Resort announces that they will open 40 new acres of expert terrain this winter season, called Teo 2, once the area has ample snowpack.

Fresh ways to hit the slopes!

MT. CRESTED BUTTE, Colo. – JUL.28 – In anticipation of the 2014-2015 ski season, Crested Butte Mountain Resort is improving guest entertainment on skis and off. Snow bike rentals will make it possible to hit the slopes in more ways than one, and continued thinning on gladed runs will offer intermediate skiers more places to ski through the trees. And thanks to a new storage system for skis, getting on and off the slopes will be easier than ever. Check out the details:

Continued Glading for Intermediate Skiers

Last summer, the resort thinned 10 acres of trees, dramatically improving access to forested skiing. This summer, the improvements continue as resort crews partner with the local US Forest Service District to identify new areas for glading. Intermediate skiers looking for more gentle gladed terrain should get ready to weave through the trees in the East River area and off the Teocalli Lift.
