Crested Butte Mountain Guides has teamed up with CBMR to create a new in bounds / out of bounds adventure ski program. The first day takes place in the "extremes" at the ski area with a focus on exploring the intricate nooks and crannies of CMBR's amazingly steep and complex terrain; an optional second day takes place in Crested Butte's pristine backcountry.
I met up with the Schnapp Family from Long Island, NY last week for a terrific day of adventuring around CBMR. David, Alex and Jacob had taken several ski lessons from the Ski and Ride School, but wanted to try something a little different...a little more exciting!
So I gave them the tour of Crested Butte's renown extreme terrain. They soon realized that this is a unique ski area with in bounds terrain unlike anything you could ever find off of I-70.
Occasionally we did a little hiking to for our turns, but the rewards were always worth the effort.
Plus, the snow is always better if you work for it a little.
It was a great day all around. We had wonderful weather, a fun group of talented skiers, and plenty of soft stuff to play around in.
Thanks for coming out to visit us here in Crested Butte. All of us at CBMG and CBMR look forward to your next visit.
