With almost 5 feet of snow falling in Crested Butte, the Holiday Season has been blessed with lots and lots of white gold….and it is still dumping with 2 more days to go !!!
So far, we have run a full gamut of courses already in December with, 2- Level 1 Avalanche Courses, 1- Level 2 Avalanche Course, an Avalanche Refresher Course, and just today had to restrict our Level 1 Avalanche HUT Course to town limits, due to so much snow and the inability to safely get in and out of the hut in Gothic, CO.
Backcountry Ski Touring & Split-Boarding is also prime right now, as the warm and wet snow has been the cause for high avalanche danger, but our extensive backyard offers us almost unlimited terrain potential from which to choose from, so as to ensure great powder skiing & riding in safe conditions under the watchful eye of our trained and experienced guides.
Our NEW Backcountry PowderCamp, from Feb 21-25, 2011 is filling up fast, with 5-days of awesome Crested Butte backcountry powder-skiing coupled with nights in our charming mountain town. As are our other camps and ski expeditions such as: Alaska Ski Mountaineering, Colorado Spring Ski Mountaineering, and European Haute Route Ski Tour trips, so make sure to get in on these trips this year as the snow is proving to be epic all over, not just in Crested Butte.
Happy Holidays to everyone
