Crested Butte Terrain Gallery

Slot Rocks and Staircase

Last Thursday, we decided to hike around Crested Butte Mountain Resort in order to see what our terrain looks like in the summer.  If anyone still doubts the decision not to have a competition this year, check out these photos.  It will become very apparent that Crested Butte needs more than a 150 inch season in order to open our good terrain.

The hike also turned out to be a helpful exercise because we were able to see rocks under cliffs that we like to hit.  We didn’t make it to Third Bowl and Hourglass due to time restraints.

Winter is not far away.
