Crested Butte Opening Day ~
Opening Day is almost here and you can feel the excitement in the air! The lifts started spinning at 9:00 AM this morning for the Crested Butte Snowsports Foundation Donation Day, raising money for the youth in the Gunnison Valley. Crested Butte Mountain Resort’s official Opening Day is tomorrow, kicking off the 2017/2018 Ski Season.
With several inches of fresh snow out of the last storm, people are anxious to hit the slopes. CBMR will be celebrating opening day with a complimentary champagne toast in the base area and free cookies at the Lodge at Mountaineer Square from 9:00-11:00 am. So break out the winter gear, wax your skis and snowboards and get in some early season runs before heading to Thanksgiving dinner. The Red Lady Express lift will be running until 4:00 PM with access to Lower Keystone, Peanut and Warming House Hill.
Be sure to stop by the Avalanche or Butte 66 for some great after ski Aprés specials and of course football. Looking for a way to warm up after a day on the hill or before heading out? Check out the newest coffee shop, the Coal Breaker Coffee Company, located at the base area in the Lodge at Mountaineer Square. No dinner plans but still in the mood for Thanksgiving dinner? Head over to the Woodstone Grille located in the Grand Lodge for a three course Thanksgiving Dinner from 4:00-8:30.
Have a fun and safe Opening Day!
