During the month of February, another five feet of snow fell on Mt. Crested Butte making for some of the most impressive spring skiing conditions I have experienced in years. 100% of the resort is open and the coverage is amazing. Warm sunny days are in the forecast along with 8,000 skiers daily so be patient as there will actually be lift lines for once. Click here for a real time snow report and terrain information.
While the awesome snow totals continue to be the buzz around town, there were several other notable February events. The Crested Butte Avalanche Center held their 4th Annual Go Deeper Beer Tasting and the Crested Butte Center for The Arts once again hosted the Move The Butte. If you missed this year's performance, check out a showing at the Majestic Theater on April 5th. Mardi Gras celebrators made their way up Elk Avenue on February 28th in the annual Mardi Gras Parade.
The March calendar is packed with events including Ski Patrol's Wall to Wall Party on Friday March 3rd, the Banff Mountain Film Festival, the all too famous Al Johnson Tele Race and the Red Lady Salvation Ball.
