CRESTED BUTTE MOUNTAIN RESORT
What’s new: Start your day at the new Coal Breaker Coffee shop, inside the Treasury Center hub at the base area. Later in the day, make your way to the new Umbrella Bar at Ten Peaks, at the top of the Painter Boy chairlift. Check out new adventures like the winter zipline tours and Snowcat Driving Experience, or take advantage of the no-strings-attached Kids Ski Free offer for children twelve and under, from opening day, November 24, through December 16.
Signature experience: Crested Butte’s infamous Extreme Limits terrain remains a major draw for expert skiers and riders, with nearly 600 acres of double-black-diamond runs. The zone, accessible by two T-bar surface lifts, boasts pitches as steep as 47 degrees.
