Trail Report

December 12, 2020


Boom, just like that we are back in it! Yesterday produced a nice refresh of our open trails and we got it groomed a few times during the day. Thanks for sharing the trail with the grooming equipment.

The cat was out last night during the break in snow to get a nice hard base going for today. Snow will be picking back up between 8 and 9AM and it looks to be a snowy day all day today. We will likely be doing a storm lap midday.

There is a Citizens Race today at 10AM on Ruthie’s Run. We are asking that anyone not racing to please ski in a Counterwise direction so avoid going against race traffic.

We strongly urge everyone to check the Avalanche Report today and be vigilant if you are going anywhere outside today. The situation is setting up to be dangerous on even small slopes and roadcuts given our weak snow on the ground everywhere.


A Special Avalanche Bulletin is in place for the mountains surrounding Crested Butte.  Significant snowfall is overloading a weak snowpack and avalanches are likely.  Terrain from Kebler Pass through Paradise Divide through Schofield Pass is the most hazardous area as these locations received the most snowfall.  Expect that you can easily trigger avalanches that are large enough to bury you.  Continued snowfall on Saturday will increase the avalanche hazard throughout the day.  The terrain in the Southeast Mountains that border the Northwest Mountains are included in this Special Avalanche Bulletin.
