Crested Butte gets 7 feet of snow
Whistler Blackcomb up in British Columbia isn’t the only resort in North America that is getting big dumps. Crested Butte has received more than seven feet of snow in the past 10 days. According to resort officials, the heavens have erupted and continue to churn out that wonderful WHITE GOLD, aka powder snow! Fifty-nine inches of snow fell over the past weekend, with another six to twelve predicted for today. The skiing and riding is outrageous, they say. With all this abundant snowfall Crested Butte Mountain Resort will open the Extreme Limits on Thursday.
"We are thrilled about this early season snow. The timing of this new snow with Ski FREE couldn’t be better! These early season storms are ‘manna from heaven’ and will set us up for an incredible season to come," said Ethan Mueller, CBMR Director of Operations.
Lodging and travel bookings are way up for the holidays and the rest of this year’s ski season. With the increased winter tourism and worldwide awareness of our ski conditions should make 2008 a ski season to remember!
Thanks for visiting!
