Good Morning! The sun is shining and the trails are gleaming today. Everything is groomed. The Maze is closed due to water, slush and ice on the trail. Just a heads up, the Gronk and Pooches bridges are very thin. There is a water hole forming in between the two farther bridges on Mike’s Mile. […]

We have a Nordic Trail System good for skating and classic skiing! Groomed by snowcat last night was Ruthie’s Run, Town Ranch, Kapusion, Pooches and Beaver trails. All trails should support skating but it is still early and thin with awkward sections. We are hoping to get the remaining Mike’s Mile open soon. Have a […]

What? Clouds? I’ve never been so happy to see overcast skies. We are in transition out of our Tyrannosaurus Rex Block weather pattern and entering a more unstable period.  Look for snow flakes in Crested Butte today and more heavy snowfall tomorrow. We are hoping this pattern continues for new trail openings before the Holidays. […]
