There are many reasons why one should be in Crested Butte, Colorado, right now. The first being that the resort is posting 12” of new snow in the last 24 hours and it’s still coming down. Second, the Silver Queen Express lift opens on Friday and the East River Express Lift on Saturday, meaning more incredible terrain to ski and fresh powder both mornings. Lastly, Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) is adding a little bonus to their passholders on Saturday, by opening the Silver Queen lift 15 minutes early to give them first tracks on the new terrain in the East River area. Calling it the Peak Pass Poach, CBMR is opening the lift at 8:45 a.m. on Saturday morning for Peak Pass, Peak Pass+, and Choice Pass holders to get first tracks. Untracked. Ungroomed. And it’s going to be unreal.
For terrain openings, the Silver Queen lift will open for the season this Friday, December 6, 2013 at 9 a.m. This will open almost 100 more acres by Friday. Saturday, with the East River lift opening, another 65 acres will open, making this early the season, one of the best in recent memory.
