February Skiing In Crested Butte
After four flights and an overnight stop in Tampa, arrived in Crested Butte at 3 o’clock yesterday afternoon. With ski passes and ski equipment pre-booked on-line the admin side of the ski trip took less than an hour. Passes for four took less than 1/4 of an hour and Peak Sports had us fitted in about half an hour.
First-ish lift this morning and a sunny start to the ski trip. Snow was forecast and the weather closed in, got cold and windy but the snow never fell.
Old warm-up runs were visited: Cascades, Panions, Prospector, Paradise Bowl, Ruby Chief, and the ski in route to San Moritz Condos – Oh-Be-Joyful.
By tomorrow morning, there will be 20 people from the British Virgin Islands on the slopes; and all in various stages of “rediscovering snow.”
