Go Ski Crested Butte
Mt. Crested Butte Ski Resort
Gunnison National Forest
Wait...what...ski? I thought this was a hiking blog...
This weekend some friends invited us to stay with them at their friend's ski house in Crested Butte. I love Crested Butte, it is one of my favorite areas in Colorado. That being said, I've never been there in the winter, and never skied Mt. Crested Butte, so of course we jumped at the chance. With our little one in tow, my wife and I took turns skiing a blue bird day and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. This may have to be a yearly tradition.
Even though the resort closes down next weekend, there is an incredible amount of snow. The Elk Mountains were saturated. It should be a green wildflower heaven of a spring/summer hiking season, although it may start on the late side this year.
