Crested Butte adds more snow making facilities

New snowmaking pipes are being installed at Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR), adding more acreage and more capacity to the East River area.

Enhanced snowmaking will allow the CBMR to open this area sooner, with better coverage in the early winter season. The resort has also leased a new Prinoth snow groomer, the Bison X,which will maintain one of the state’s best corduroy

Continued renovations at the Paradise Warming House – one of our regular on-mountain hang-outs – have been taking place throughout the summer for the second year in a row. The resort has put more than $200,000 into improving the on-mountain cafeteria; from completely upgrading the food line, to new furniture, an outdoor barbeque, a new bar, carpet and signage.

USA Pro Cycling Challenge - Stage 2 Overview & Estimated Times

One of the shortest stages of the week, a mix of old and new awaits the racers on this second stage of 99 miles from Montrose to Mt Crested Butte.

Then the cyclists visit familiar territory with a Sprint Line in Gunnison, a second Sprint Line in Crested Butte, and a nasty 2 mile climb to the dramatic finish on Mt. Crested Butte, which proved an exciting moment in 2011. After heading gradually uphill most of the day, cyclists and their fans will witness all the excitement of a huge alpine climb packed into 4 minutes, with the promising roar of the Crested Butte crowd at the finish.
