Skiers, snowboarders and carnival lovers alike are invited to join the Mardi Gras fun on Feb. 21 and 24 as the towns prepare to send off Fat Tuesday with a bang.
Forecasters are expecting 1 to 2 feet of snow in Crested Butte from a storm this weekend.
The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning through 6 a.m. Monday for the northwest Colorado mountains.
