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.
380 acres of mostly gladed terrain puts the resort’s official count to 1,547 skiable acres
Crested Butte Mountain Resort (CBMR) is going through the Master Development Plan process with the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre, and Gunnison National Forest District. While developing current maps and analyzing terrain, resort planners confirmed that the ski area has 380 additional acres of skiable terrain throughout many gladed areas within bounds. The finding brings CBMR’s skiable acreage to a total of 1,547 acres; previously claiming 1,167 acres of skiable terrain throughout the resort.
